Advancing process understanding

 

Proven and innovative Symmetry Process gives you more time to solve processing challenges, helping to reduce your capex and opex up to USD 20 million. Its database includes more than 20,000 chemicals and 80 thermodynamic property packages and hundreds of unit operations, giving you access to unparalleled model sophistication and precision.

Symmetry

New dimension of plant model safety and operational integrity

Switch between steady-state and dynamic models to model batch processes that operate on a cycle.

The new advanced hierarchical flowsheet organization offers an easy way to work with and manage any model size with no limitations.

New capabilities and a configurable modeling framework are included for depressuring, blowdown, and cooldown of multiple vessels and pipes.

 

Optimize LNG plant performance

Symmetry Process lets you model virtually any sweetening unit with a comprehensive suite of chemical and physical sweetening solvents, validated thermodynamic models, flexible flow sheeting structure, and robust tower algorithm.

You can accurately predict

  • vapor pressure and phase partitioning of mercury for complete understanding of its environmental hazards as well as corrosion problems

  • methanol phase behavior to prevent undersizing of washtower requirements.

  • hydrate formation, with or without the use of inhibitors

  • vapor solid and liquid solid equilibrium freezing temperatures of CO2.

Comprehensive heat exchanger design with automated link to HTRI Xchanger Suite

Perform heat exchanger rating and design calculations directly from a Symmetry Process model without manually transferring data. You can also embed rigorous exchanger simulations into a case, enabling prediction of exchanger output conditions and pressure drops in your models.

From any heat exchanger operation in your simulation model, you can access HTRI's robust exchanger design, rating, and simulation capabilities.

Clicking the live link will automatically connect the process model to the heat exchanger design program, propagating the required information, including physical properties and stream inlet and outlet conditions. The live link feature also lets you create a separate input file for HTRI Xchanger Suite and PSF files.

Clicking the live link will automatically connect the process model to the heat exchanger design program, propagating the required information, including physical properties and stream inlet and outlet conditions.

At any time, you can view and work in the heat exchanger program interface and the Symmetry platform.

Maximized profitability with predictive refinery modeling

Symmetry Process fills in the gaps in your existing processes using unprecedented, predictive modeling capabilities on a unit- or enterprise-wide basis. You can also leverage any data from the production facility for tuning and refining your existing models.

The unique modeling approach uses a chemical-family-structure-based characterization with a rigorous reactor-basis design. This forms an innovative framework for predictive modeling from property estimation to investigating the intricacies of how reactor configuration details will affect the reactor’s performance. You can use a single component slate across multiple refinery units, both reactive and nonreactive, for multiunit refinery evaluation. Integrating these leading models empowers you to simulate complex plants with multiple integrated units—all within a single flexible flowsheet.

Integrated plantwide modeling

Within Symmetry Process, you can easily build a comprehensive plant model—from well gathering to sweetening through to liquefaction—without requiring any additional interfaces.
