How to Calculate the NPSH of Pump in HYSYS

The pump unit operation in HYSYS has an NPSH page on the rating tab. So, you might think that a quick glance will give you valuable information with little or no effort. You’d better think twice! Let’s start with the things you would probably think of yourself, but it might be useful to get a…

Simulating Pressure Profile in HYSYS

For most unit operations in HYSYS (Steady-State), pressure profiles and/or pressure changes in equipment are specified parameters. Often one needs to more accurately model pressure profile, such as when plant pressure drop is estimated in order to determine compression requirements. This leads to the following questions: What are reasonable estimates of pressure drop for process equipment? How can…
