Many process engineering departments use software tools for process simulation to support the design and re-design of process and utility plants. Inprocess has been developing Training Programs to deploy simulation know-how among all engineers of an EPC, working as a subcontractor to supply expert studies (such as Dynamic Process Simulation Studies) and working together with our EPC customers to find new areas to apply simulation, adding additional value to EPC Services.

Engineering Companies expects maximum reliability from their subcontractors. Our expertise helps eliminate the risks of unexpected performance issues when developing modelling projects for EPCs.

    • Petrochemicals
    • Italian Engineering Company

    Inprocess was requested to carry out a Dynamic Simulation Study for Ethylene Refrigerant Compressor in order to study some serious operational problems that were detected during compressor start-up after driver trip (steam turbine). The aim of the dynamic simulation study in this project was to determine possible improvements in process design that could solve the detected operational problems.

  • Turbo Expander/Residue Gas Compressor Dynamic Simulation Study
    • 2016
    • Kuwait
    • Natural Gas
    • Middle East National Petroleum Company

    Inprocess delivered a Dynamic Simulation Study for a Turbo Expander/Residue Gas Compressor, for a Gas Plant Train in Kuwait in order to confirm high operational safety and reliability of the system. Consequently, the project:
    - Verified the Instrumented Protection System (response of the antisurge control system / adequacy of the Turboexpander protections)
    - Confirmed the stable operation during start-up and shutdown with existing control scheme.
    - Validated the stable Turboexpander and Residue Gas Compressor operation under minimum - maximum loadings and response to flow rate variations.
    - Confirmed the stable operation during sequencing for mode switching to / from JT mode.
    - Confirmed the adequacy of the overpressure protection system of the Demethaniser installed
    downstream of Turboexpander.
