Thermodynamics

CC-ReACS uses the CHEMCAD thermodynamics and physical properties system which has been used and proven in a wide range of processes for over fifteen years.


Reactor Design
• Multiple Coils and jackets
• Service or process side heat exchangers and electric heaters
• Heat transfer rate calculation; includes calculation of process and services side film coefficients
• Vapor and liquid draws permitted
• Batch, semi-batch or continuous operation
• Vessel pressurization calculated

Auxillary Equipment

Any unit operation may be used with the batch reactor to flexibly model the process, including: dynamic vessel, heat exchanger, mixer, divider, separator, calve, pump etc.


Control System

• User specified PID loops
• Multiple ramp or step changers in setpoint
• Control of reactor or jacket temperature differential
• Level controllers
• Pressure controllers
• Cascade control
• Heat-cool-chill system with safety interlocks
• Split range controllers

Reactive Distillation

CC-ReACS is fully integrates with CHEMCAD dynamic distillation column simulator, CC-DColumn.
