The Advanced Distillation Standard Model provides a comprehensive and dynamic simulation of typical distillation columns used in gas recovery plants common to most refinery and petrochemical sites. The process simulated is the two distillation towers, a debutanizer and a depropanizer, in series. This model can be used to train operators how to safely and efficiently operate multiple, interacting distillation columns.
A model guide is provided with the standard model which includes sections on Process Description, Control Narratives, Startup and Shutdown procedures.
Two user interface options are available with this standard model. They include Run Time Graphics (RTG) running on a PC, and operating displays on Honeywell Universal or GUS stations.
