 ChemSep v7.1 Improved Graphics January 2016 
Earlier versions of ChemSep relied on the external GNUplot program to display column profiles and McCabe-Thiele diagrams. New in ChemSep 7.1 is an internal graphics package that can show the plots instantly, leading to a more rapid review of results. An intuitive Click-and-Drag functionality allows you to zoom into any detail:

 ChemSep CAPE-OPEN Property Packages Explained October 2015 
At the Annual 2015 CO-LaN meeting held at Shell Global Solutions, we presented the development of the ChemSep Cape-Open Property Packages, "CS/copp", and showcased benefits by means of trace analysis examples on our ASU and MEG flowsheets.



 ChemSep v7.0 Released July 2015 
To enable others to take advantage of our thermodynamic and physical property methods and components database, we developed the ChemSep Cape-Open Property Package: "CS/copp". Now it is possible for others to use the ChemSep implementations of the predictive-SRK or Universal Mixing-Rule Peng-Robinson inside other tools that lack these models, i.e. inside UNISIM Design (Hyprotech) and Pro/II (SIMSCI). Take advantage of the super-simple setup in the ChemSep interface to define a property package and then use it in any compliant flowsheet you need it. This can be particularly useful in mixture with many isomers where measuring all compounds is an undo-able task (e.g. for modeling oxygenates in MTO processes).



 Robust and flexible column specifications January 2014 
On our downloads page we added a several new flowsheets e.g. the hydration of Ethylene Oxide to Mono-Ethylene Glycol (MEG), a gas cracker producing Ethylene and Propylene, a Natural Gas separation train, reactive distillation processes for producing Tert-Amyl Methyl Ether (TAME) and Methyl Acetate, refinery light ends separations, EthylBenzene (EB) production from Ethylene and Benzene, dehydrogenation of 2-Butanol to Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) or of Methanol to DiMethyl Ether (DME), and LNG Refrigeration Cycles for Natural Gas. These flowsheets showcase different separation techniques such as extractive distillation, pasteurization sections for obtaining very pure products, pumparounds, multiple effect evaporization, and reactive distillation. ChemSep handles the column modeling in these flowsheets with ease, employing component concentrations and recoveries specifications or more advanced specifications such as the concentrations at specific stage.



 Application of FRI Tray Efficiency Model in Column Simulation and Design April 2013 
At the 2013 Spring AIChE meeting in San Antonio we presented together with ConocoPhillips a paper on the application of the FRI valve tray efficiency model where we feature the total reflux simulation facility inside ChemSep. We show how the FRI model was implemented in our equilibrium column model and how FRI measured composition and temperature profiles could be closely match FRI data. Included is also a comparison between the model and two industrial columns, a C4 splitter reported by Klemola et al. and a dehexanizer reported by Jakobsson et al.
