The latest software from ProSim is Simulis Pinch: a powerful Add-in tool for Microsoft® Excel to improve the energy efficiency of processes through better energy integration

Simulis Pinch is appropriate for every professional doing energy audits in the industry.  Dedicated to the energy integration of the processes, this application is based on the Pinch technology and is applicable to any industrial process where energy is used for heating or cooling the process fluids. Simulis Pinch enables you to quickly find the maximum energy recovery for a particular process. Then, to reach the target of reduced energy consumption, a proprietary algorithm automatically finds an efficient process configuration considering the best compromise between capital and operating costs, to reach the target of energy consumption. Opportunities to improve energy efficiency are easily identified.

Fives Cryo uses ProSec and Simulis Thermodynamics to get optimal design of its manufactured plate fin heat exchangers

ProSec is a software dedicated to the simulation of multi-stream plate fin heat exchangers commonly used in cryogenic processes (air liquefaction, LNG ...). ProSec is able to model the full complexity of this type of equipment and offer the user ability to model the various possibilities to combine the hot and cold fluids in order to reduce capital and production costs.
A rigorous and accurate calculation of the thermo-physical properties of the fluids flowing into these heat exchangers (phase change temperature, specific heat, viscosity...) is required. This is the role of Simulis Thermodynamics.

The combination of these two software allows Fives Cryo to design efficient equipment.

What is new with our training courses

Training courses for advanced users
Every year, ProSim organizes several training sessions allowing people from industry to start to learn about process simulation tools. Attending such training session is usual when licensing a new software but is also highly appreciated throughout the life of the contract so that new users become quickly operational.
The same applies to universities and public research centers who can attend these training sessions within the framework of their software license agreement for teaching or academic research purposes.
To meet a growing demand to improve one's simulation skills, ProSim now offers training sessions for more experienced users who can enhance their process simulation skills by attending level 2 training courses.

Training courses in Philadelphia, PA - USA
Eager to provide the same quality service to its North American customers as those based in Europe, and to respond to a growing demand, ProSim now offers training sessions in its Philadelphia office. The first sessions that just ended have been very successful. 
The schedule of the next training sessions is available on our web site. 
 
A new training class room in Labège
ProSim just invested in a new training center, next to its offices on the same floor, in order to provide the best training and be able to host an increasingly number of participants. This new center, more spacious, has all the amenities needed for the participants to enjoy the courses.
