The release features several new key focus areas. The safety system design features the introduction of UniSim PRS (pressure relief system), commercializing an internal tool developed by Honeywell UOP, developer and licensor of technologies for the refining, petrochemicals and gas processing industries. In addition, the new release includes further enhancements to the UniSim Blowdown option, which was co-developed with a major integrated oil company and originally introduced in November 2015. The heat-exchanger design and in particular the integration with Heat Transfer Research, Inc. (HTRI) products has been enhanced. For flow-assurance and sub-sea operations, it is now possible to model multi-phase pumps (MPPs) in steady-state and dynamics, to support the evolving technology for multiphase pressure boosting. MPPs are particularly important to flow assurance for sub-sea operations, increasing the commercial viability of production wells. The pipe unit operation has been enhanced to include hydrate and ice formation predictions and sand erosion calculations. Finally, it is now easier to import pressure, volume, temperature (PVT) characterization data from CALSEP’s PVTSim products into UniSim Design and visualize them, eliminating manual data entry and room for errors. The new release includes a crude manager for easy importing of assays, more than 100 pre-defined refining properties, and both standard and custom mixing rules, making it easier to model refining processes.
