Bryan Research & Engineering has a vision for finding solutions, and it starts with you.

ProMax is a powerful and versatile process simulation software package that is used by engineers worldwide to design and optimize gas processing, refining and chemical facilities. In basic terms, our goal for the software is that it be highly customizable yet very robust, extremely powerful yet approachable and usable, and very accurate in its predictions without any need of regression or fitting on the part of the user. The ProMax package also includes access to our knowledgeable process team ready to help whenever and however we can. Our mission to serve and support our customers at the highest level is genuinely important to our entire staff.

  • Copy-and-paste streams and blocks, including groups of streams and blocks

Mixed Species:

  • Mixed Species are mixtures of individual components that appear in the component list as a single component.
  • Predefined mixtures of fixed composition such as air, ASHRAE designated refrigerant blends, and more.
  • User Defined Mixed Species where users can create their own single-component that represents a blend of pure species.

GIS Tool:

  • Allows importation of geographic information system (GIS) data to create pipeline networks in ProMax.
  • Sources can be kmz, kml, or shp formats.
  • Data reduction allows for simplification of expansive data imports to increase speed while maintaining fidelity of the information.
  • Automatically detects connectivity with nearby pipelines
  • The GIS Tool’s graphical interface shows real plotting of data as well as manipulation without the need to re-import the data.
  • Populates missing pipeline elevation with data from satellite scans of the Earth’s surface.
  • Can overlay other important geographic information that may be missing from the GIS data, such as geopolitical boundaries, locations of energy facilities, and more.
  • A new pipeline dialog called the Flowsheet Tool allowing for consistent and comprehensive viewing of entire pipe networks in ProMax.

Huntsman JEFFTREAT Solvents:

  • Available to all ProMax users (security device update required).
  • Solvents available include:
    • JEFFTREAT MS-100
    • JEFFTREAT MS-203
    • JEFFTREAT MS-205
    • JEFFTREAT MS-303
    • JEFFTREAT M-505
    • JEFFTREAT M-507
    • JEFFTREAT M-510

Alkylation Reactor Block:

  • The new Alkylation block converts C3, C4, and C5 olefins into alkylate (mixed C7, C8, and C9 iso-paraffins) plus C11, C12, and C13 poly-alkylation products.  The poly-alkylation products undergo further cracking before leaving the reactor.
  • The block allows for convenient investigation of reactor temperature, iso-butane/olefin ratio, and outlet olefin leakage.
  • Both HF and Sulfuric Acid systems available.
  • Account for
    • Acid circulation, iso-butane circulation, and HF stripper recycle closure
    • External and internal HF acid regeneration plus acid settler carryover
    • Sulfuric acid strength and refrigeration
    • Fractionator Hydraulics

Delayed Coker Block:

  • Model refinery delayed coking processes where heavy petroleum fractions are cracked into lighter components, such as gas, gasoline, and gas oil.
  • Predict product yields using a fully customizable yield model.
  • Study the effects of recycle ratio, drum pressure, and furnace temperature on unit performance.
  • Relate drum outage height and cycle time.
  • Anticipate the effect of feed Micro Carbon Residue (MCR) on coke production rate.
  • Integrate with Vacuum Tower model to evaluate the effect of changing Vacuum Tower operations on the coker unit.

AutoKinetic Reactor Improvements:

  • Simplified User Interface making for easier implementation.
  • Reduced number of required inputs for fixed-bed reactors.
  • Solve time dramatically decreased, in most cases by 80% or more.
  • Hydrodenitrogenation (HDN) reactions now available for complete modeling of hydrotreaters and their effluents.

Additional Blocks:

  • Ejector/Eductor block to calculate pressure boost to a driven fluid
  • Flare Tip to predict radiation, destruction efficiency, and noise following API Recommended Practices 521.
  • Seal Drum to determine relationship between geometry and pressure drop for forward flow through a liquid seal, as well as predictions of a vacuum condition, following API Recommended Practices 521.
  • Tee/Wye blocks that estimate pressure losses at piping junctions.
