Tip 9: Petro-SIM Column Application Comparison


Do you know the difference between DISTOP and other solvers for column simulation? Do you know the advantages and limitations of each?


Petro-SIM provides several solving methods. The following table displays the general features of all the Petro-SIM Column Solving Methods.

In general, the DISTOP solver option used with the Petro-SIM column, based on section-by section solution method, is specifically optimized to solve refinery main fractionator columns rapidly and robustly. It is particularly suited to CDU/VDU, FCCU, coker and hydrocracker main fractionators and similar separations. The model may only be used to perform a separation on streams that have refinery assays. The following table summarizes the advantages and limitations for DISTOP and Tray-to Tray columns.

We will be checking on how well you do by asking some simple questions in December. Two lucky winners will be picked and receive KBC exclusive gifts. Do keep a look out for our periodic email.
