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.

The initial features of ChemSep as a CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation were described first at the CAPE-OPEN 2005 Annual Meeting held in Como, Italy. A more recent overview of ChemSep, of its use and of its development plans was given at the CAPE-OPEN 2017 Annual Meeting on October 13, 2017.

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.
