Software’s from the ASPEN family such as HYSYS, EDR,CAPITAL COST ESTIMATOR etc were employed to simulate a cost effective Methanol-Water Column. Various possible conditions required to obtain the Final grade of Methanol were studied and the related crises were identifiedthereby helping to attain the resultthat is identical to the real life situation at the plant-site.

CONSTRUCTION & COMMISSIONING:-

Chemsys possesses an in-house fabrication Unit that employs proficient Design Engineers and expert labourers who helped fabricate the Methanol-Water Column and other associated equipment’s such as Condenser and Reboilerconceding to the stipulated criteria. Chemsys also provided assistance during the commissioning of the plant. Chemsys’ experts helped the client run various tests such as Hydro Testing, Pneumatic Leak Testing, IR and Continuity Testing, control Narrative Testingetc to ensure uninterrupted and efficient functioning of the plant.
