Simulation d'unités de production d'acide nitrique et d'absorption de vapeurs nitreuses

March 16-17, 2020 LEVEL 1
  • ProSimPlus HNO3
ProSim SA - Labège (31)
Language: French
COST 990.00 € + Tax (Included in MUTS contracts - free)

This level 1 training will enable participants to master the fundamental principles of simulation and optimization of nitric acid plants and nitrous vapors absorption. Trainees will study issues related to physico-chemical properties, unit operation modeling, mass-energy balances and numerical aspects.

At the end of the training, participants will have the required elements to assess the benefits of simulation and to analyse rigorously a process with a flowsheeting software. Additionally they will have a practical experience of the ProSimPlus HNO3 simulator. 

Who should attend?
This training session is designed for engineers involved in design, optimization and analysis of processes and for those in charge of the efficiency of an installation running under different operating conditions.
