AMEC
Safety Analysis in HYSYS provides a pragmatic means of estimating relief loads,
PSV relieving area and Inlet/outlet line sizes in a quick and productive manner.
The scenario management system in HYSYS v8.3 allows the review of relief
contingencies and the expected back pressure all in one place. This addition to

aspen HYSYS may be used both as a design and as an educational tool.

Petrofac
The new Aspen HYSYS safety analysis functionality is great for the relief analysis
of the process unit. We can now quickly estimate relieving fluid properties /
conditions, size the relief valves and produce required documentation all
without leaving HYSYS! This will minimize errors, improve the quality and speed
up our work significantly.

INPROCESS Cons.& Tech


The most important utility of this incorporation for the user is that he does not
have to transfer data from one software to the other since it takes the needed
data directly from the Aspen HYSYS stream The interface created for this utility
in Aspen HYSYS is fast, clear and comfortable for the user. It permits him to

be flexible and to have a fast overview of the different PSVs, scenarios and data
in sizing the PSVs
