Process Calculation in Chemical Engineering
The field of process calculation in chemical engineering is vast. When we talk about process
simulation, we usually mean mass balance and heat balance, and we have a complete block
diagram that includes different activities and equipment. And we know what the input
materials are, what the output materials are, how much heat we need to feed to the
equipment, and how much energy we will generate or consume for each piece of equipment.
This is very common in chemical engineering process calculations.
This is a very general simulation, and you can find very impressive simulation packages that are
free for companies that traditionally do these kinds of calculations. You can find vast
information on the web. When we try to calculate a specific unit operation, we will find that it is
more difficult, and a high level of professional and scientific knowledge about the specific units
of operation is required.
And from here, from these types of things, we provide our knowledge to our customers. Every
process you do in your tank, whether fermentation, chemical reactions, evaporation,
crystallization, or emulsification, every process you want to progress, you must ensure that you
can connect materials. And the way you interact, the condition under which those materials will
interact, depends on the equipment you're using and the mixing equipment you're using to
generate interaction between those materials that will be sufficient for you. And, of course,
different types of interactions will produce different kinds of outcomes. So, when we talk about
process calculation in the chemical industry, we mean both the general and specific levels for
each unit operation. And for this, you'll need a calculation that includes field expertise because
each field is unique. We provide you with mixing expertise, and because mixing is involved in
every unit operation, we become the market people who can connect the mixing and every unit
operation, every process. We add fermentation, crystallization, emulsification, precipitation,
any process that is normally occurring in our block diagrams, every block into a block diagram,
whatever to provide what will be the mixing requirement for this block diagram that will be
better for the process in terms of mass transfer, heat transfer, and any other operation.
To summarize, the mixing software VisiMix gives you some zoom into the block in the complete
block diagram; for each block, you need some mixing parameters that will be good for this
specific block, and VisiMix does these process calculations. Once you understand it, you can
apply it to all of the blocks and consider the general process calculation in the chemical
