After carrying out
basic material & energy balances this module is used to examine various
plant stream details and their physical properties. Various utilities viz.
Pressure Calculations , Heat Loss Calculations; and Data Export are also
To add 2 streams
1. Select the first
stream and mark the stream as "Mark Stream-1".
Stream is selected
by placing the mouse cursor in any cell in a row and
pressing left mouse
button. The selected cell appears highlighted. The
row containing selected
cell is the selected stream. Selected stream can
be marked as 1 or
2 by pressing "1" "2" buttons on the tool bar or from
the pop-up menu. The
pop-up menu appears on right clicking the mouse

stream similarly and mark as "Mark Stream-2".
3. After marking
the streams as 1 & 2, select a stream with empty data
(basically a stream

4. Now pressing
tool bar button "+" will add these 2 marked streams and
will be displayed. This stream addition simulates

acid, oleum, water, steam
with acid, water, oleum, steam in any combination;
air, gas, water, steam
with air, gas, water, steam in any combination.
There is another
button with Sigma summation face on it. This is used
for adding all the
stream begining at first stream upto second stream.
This is basically

a equipment and
want to know resulting stream. You can place all the
streams in continous
rows and sum them all up. The procedure is same as
earlier. Only in
this case you press button with Sigma sign.
In case of subtraction,
it is only flow rate substraction, and not
of streams. I have not yet been in postion to simulate
of streams, basically due to lack of time & need. to do
