Honeywell inked a multi-year contract with Linde AG to continue providing the industrial gases and engineering company with its UniSim Design Suite simulation software.
Linde uses UniSim Design for the process engineering of olefin, hydrogen and synthesis gas plants, for which it models the complete processes in a single simulation. It also uses the solution for research and development, plant safety design, and as a starting point for detailed engineering of complex equipment such as heat exchangers and distillation columns.
Honeywell tailored the solution to the company’s requirements using a joint development program. It interfaces with Linde’s in-house physical properties system and incorporates a number of the company’s in-house unit operation models.
The design suite offers a range of tools to simulate and optimize steady state and dynamic processes, helping engineers develop processes based on critical business objectives with lower project risks before committing capital.
