4. Process Integration
We follow a holistic approach for process design wherein we consider the interactions between different unit operations whilst
analysing individual units in an integrated manner. Through this approach, we help our clients to achieve lower overall utility
costs, lower emissions and better energy management. We employ Pinch Analysis techniques for designing and integrating
processes to maximize heat recovery and reduce utility consumption by calculating thermodynamically attainable energy
targets and identifying how to achieve them in the most efficient manner.
We use tools developed by AspenTech and other leading products to perform comprehensive process integration exercises
for our clients. Through our Process Integration services, we endeavour to fulfil the following operational objectives of our
Optimization of heat exchanger networks for minimum energy consumption.
Minimizing the load of utilities for individual processes.
Checking the greenhouse gas emissions from the process.
Optimizing the configuration of new crude oil distillation systems.
Identification of heat pumping opportunities.
Design and optimization of hydrogen distribution network.
5. Process Optimization
Identification of major energy saving opportunities and reducing operating costs for the plant are one of the primary objectives
while performing detailed design. As part of this activity, we evaluate site utility requirements, perform improvement studies and
optimize the utility requirements. We perform such activities using the following tools:
GAMS and other programming tools (VB, C, FORTRAN )
Other open source optimization tools such as DWSIM, JModelica, etc.
Simulation based optimization tools
