Fluor’s thermodynamics expertise is a vital part of the properties and process modeling that provides qualitative solutions to technical issues. Properties and process modeling comprises a physical properties analysis, property packages and complex process model development, as well as process and plant design application. Fluor’s expertise in thermodynamics typically falls into the following categories:
- Pre-feed consultation and analysis: After reviewing the pre-FEED process, properties and process modeling experts provide Fluor technology experts the qualitative solutions for the technical bottleneck and the scope of professional service and data requirements for the quantitative solution.
- FEED data analysis and design: Properties and process modeling experts contribute to the development of detailed simulations for complex processes.
- Development of data packages: Essential validated data packages provide reliable models for Fluor experts. These packages are critical resources for Fluor as they can be used for a variety of a project’s process designs.
- Modeling of complex systems: Many process technologies require accurate modeling of complex phase behavior, reaction kinetics and mass transfer. The special skills and experience of the properties and process modeling experts are important to the success of these projects, proprietary technology development, and scale-up programs.
