New UniSim design utility by HPS

Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) declared a key enhancement to its UniSim® design and simulation software designed to help manufacturing facilities improve safety and reduce capital expenditures for both new and existing installations. The new UniSim Design Blowdown Utility assists in designing systems to allow for safe depressurization of process equipment and also helps companies manage capital costs by more accurately selecting the right construction materials and blowdown system sizes needed for the site. “We developed this new utility in-house based on Honeywell’s decades of industry expertise, which allows us to perpetuate our tradition of best-in-class customer support, after-market services, and smooth implementation,” said Mike Brown, Honeywell Marketing director. “This will play a critical role in helping improve the safety of the world’s oil and gas installations, refineries, petrochemical and chemical plants.”

UniSim Design accomplishes improved fidelity by using a modelling approach consistent with the new recommended practices and analytical fire method set forth in the Sixth Edition of the API Standard 521 Pressure-relieving and Depressuring Systems. Validation tests show that the UniSim Design Blowdown Utility matches experimental data from publically-available and proprietary sources, with the desired accuracy for blowdown prediction.
