Invensys Process Systems unveils HEXTRAN 9.2
Invensys Process Systems (IPS; Plano, Tex.; www.ips.invensys.com
) has released the newest version of SimSci-Esscor’s HEXTRAN software, a comprehensive heat transfer and pinch analysis tool. In addition to the numerous infrastructure upgrades and enhancements that address the emerging needs of clients seeking cost-effective and efficient heat transfer, HEXTRAN 9.2 simulation software can now be used on Microsoft Vista Enterprise & Business operating systems. IPS has also created an updated install procedure and support for Microsoft Office 2007.
“Our HEXTRAN 9.2 simulation software is easier to use, more accurate, and more stable, and its features will enable our clients to easily evaluate complex design, operational and retrofit situations,” says Joseph McMullen, PES & UOS Product Manager for IPS. “Regardless of the industry, the latest version of our HEXTRAN solution will help our clients become greener by improving heat transfer and energy efficiency while also improving product yield and quality.”
The IPS HEXTRAN heat-transfer simulator is the core heat transfer technology for the IPS common modeling environment. It enables users to evaluate complex design, operation and retrofit situations. It also assists in designing new systems for maximum efficiency, including identifying problems before they occur.
The infrastructure of the HEXTRAN 9.2 software has been dramatically improved and includes an enhanced error-logging module and an upgraded object store system. These infrastructure advancements will allow customers to continue to use HEXTRAN software's targeting, synthesis, design, rating and optimization technologies, along with the comprehensive thermodynamic and physical property data banks that have become industry standards. Additionally, new enhancements that allow stream data to be passed directly from the company's PRO/II simulation software simplify the design process and reduce the likelihood of errors.
The new integration with Microsoft Vista Enterprise & Business operating systems and support for Microsoft Office 2007 means that IPS clients can now integrate simulation and modeling functionality and data more easily with other enterprise applications.
