The ChemSep Consortium has been created to provide for the further development of the ChemSep nonequilibrium model. Benefits of membership include:
- Access to the CAPE-OPEN version that allows ChemSep to function with any CAPE-OPEN compliant flowsheet simulation program, with more components and stages,
- The opportunity to use ChemSep throughout the member organization
- Access to new models as soon as they become available,
- Provide input into the research and development activities carried out by the consortium.
- Access to DIPPR 801 physical properties libraries
One of the consortium’s goals is to improve nonequilibrium models in general and the ChemSep package in particular.
The ChemSep consortium develops and distributes the ChemSep Unit Operation as well as the ChemSep Property Package.
Participation to meetings organized by CO-LaN:
- Ross TAYLOR participated to the 1st CAPE-OPEN US Conference, held on August 24-25, 2004 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
- The initial features of ChemSep as a CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation were described first at the CAPE-OPEN Meeting held in 2005 in Como, Italy.
- The development of the ChemSep Property Package as a CAPE-OPEN PMC was helped by CO-LaN through a Consultancy Support action which was reported at the CAPE-OPEN 2015 Annual Meeting.
- An overview of ChemSep, of its use and of its development plans was given at the CAPE-OPEN 2017 Annual Meeting on October 13, 2017.
- Harry KOOIJMAN participated to the CAPE-OPEN 2018 Annual Meeting where he presented the latest features added to ChemSep including the capability to model Dividing Wall Columns.
Other activities within CO-LaN:
In December 2017, ChemSep participated in the Request For Comments on the proposed general Reporting interface to be included in COBIA.
ChemSep was presented the CAPE-OPEN 2017 Award in October 2018.
