AspenTech Acquires Sulsim Software from Sulphur Experts
Will Add Sulfur Recovery Simulation Technology to aspenONE® Engineering Software
Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of software and
services to the process industries, announced it has acquired Sulsim®
sulfur simulation software from Sulphur Experts. The Sulsim sulfur recovery product has been
used by the world’s leading energy companies for over 25 years.
recovery is performed in almost every refinery and gas plant processing high
sulfur feeds. Regulatory policies
require the removal of sulfur from gas produced by these plants. With Sulsim, process engineers can model the reaction
furnace, reactors, incinerator, and other related operations of sulfur recovery
plants accurately. Because this is the
last step in acid gas cleaning, accurate modeling is essential since any
disturbance will bottleneck the process flow causing reduced throughput and heavy
Aspen HYSYS® software, a leading simulation solution for the energy industry,
already provides modeling capabilities for process equipment and for acid gas cleaning
systems. Sulsim technology will allow
AspenTech customers for the first time to optimize acid gas cleaning and sulfur
recovery design and operations together.
Potential benefits for refiners and gas processors from using a single
engineering environment include improved efficiency, capital savings, safer
operation, and minimized operating costs.

recent new innovations in aspenONE Engineering, such as acid gas cleaning, we
believe that sulfur recovery simulation technology will drive significant new value
for refiners and gas processors. We will
continue to make investments that extend our technology lead and enable our
customers to generate additional benefits from process optimization.”
