Smart Simulation & Sizing Tools for Every Piping and Equipment Engineer/Designer

User Story

Project Name: Isoprene and Isobutylene production facilities design

Company Name: Soyuzkhimpromproyekt

Project Description

Region Republic of Tatarstan, Russian Federation
Dates 2016-2018
Scope The project scope included arrangement of integrated chemical plant units with synthesis reactors in the existing production area, including connection to the utility systems.
Project Specific

Project had the following specific:

  1. Large size of reactor columns.
  2. Complex process piping.
  3. Heavy operating conditions (high temperature and pressure).
PASS software used PASS/HYDROSYSTEM, PASS/START-PROF, PASS/EQUIP Vessel, PASS/EQUIP Nozzle-FEM
How PASS software helped in the project execution

PASS software helped to analyze various arrangement options and select the most convenient ones.

The analysis results made it possible to select and place piping and valves properly on the service platforms of columns, and calculate the loads on nozzles and weldolets.

Results

Both production facilities were built and put into operation in 2018. The company’s employees familiarity with the PASS software ensured easy and fast performance of analysis of the different options.

A reduction in design and construction time, as well as savings in materials and equipment, and support for variability was achieved.
