Fertilizer Plant Process Simulation

    Hello Everyone !

    I am a Graduate Trainee Process Engineer in a Fertilizer manufacturing company. I am looking forward to simulate my plant on Aspen Hysys but it does not work good with solid handling. By far, as I have researched on the internet I found ProSim Simulator to simulate such processes.
    P.S it is the ODDA Process for production of NitroPhosphate. I also want to work on the reactor residence time as it is disturbing issue on the plant. The reaction does not reach completion.
    I will be very grateful if anybody can be of assistance for the simulation, whether it be guidance or if anyone can share ProSim setup, research data regarding the process simulation.

    Hi Haider - If you already have access to Aspen Hysys, your license almost certainly includes Aspen Plus as well.  A+ incorporated a lot of solids handling capabilities a couple of releases ago, so that might be a tool to look at.  If you're interested in looking at reaction kinetics and process dynamics, you might want to consider Aspen Custom Modeler (which you should also have access to as part of the Aspen Engineering Suite) - I've used ACM to look at phos acid production before and would be happy to talk to you offline.

    Hello Haider,
    You can use Aspen Plus for simulation of fertilizer plant . Aspen plus also have some examples based on fetilizer plant  where you can easily see the steps needed for simulating your plant.

    Hope this help!
