CODES™ predicts accurate centrifugal compressor performance maps. CODES is used within the simulation environment for new equipment designs and evaluation of existing compressors.
CODES is first of its kind – compressor design rating and performance software integrated within an engineering simulator.
No vendor information required
Vendors may be willing to provide a design in an early design phase, but will be more and more reluctant as you ask for multiple designs and solutions. With CODES you can run as many designs as you want to explore different production scenarios. The results are immediate, no need to wait for vendor feedback.
Reliable performance maps
Performance maps can be regenerated for different feed compositions, molecular weights and conditions. Both thermodynamic and physical characteristics are included, thus the performance maps generated by CODES are more accurate than the traditional process simulator adjusted maps. Algorithm for tuning the performance map to match a vendor provided map makes off-design calculations easy.
Relies on decades of compressor design experience
Originally developed by Hånde Energy a turbomachinery domain expert company. Updated and maintained by BPT over 25 years with real life compressor design experience.
The CODES software comes as an extension for HYSYS v7.3 and onwards (from AspenTech), UniSim Design R443 and onwards (from Honeywell) and Petro-Sim 6 and onwards (from KBC Advanced Technologies).
