Problem Statement
I am getting incorrect results for the solubility of light gases in the liquid phase using Henry's Law with an activity coefficient model or I am getting the message: SEVERE ERROR IN PHYSICAL PROPERTY SYSTEM HENRY'S CONSTANT MODEL HENRY1 HAS MISSING PARAMETERS: HENRY/1ST ELEMENT (DATA SET 1) MISSING FOR SUPERCRITICAL COMPONENT XXX WITH ALL SOLVENTS which is followed by a Terminal error in the Physical Property system.

How can this be corrected?

Both of these problems may occur because Henry's Law is not correctly specified for components. If a light gas is not specified as a Henry Component, usually the amount of that gas in the liquid phase is overpredicted. To use Henry's law for a given component, Henry's constants must be present between the component and at least one of the solvents. If the Henry's constant is available for only some of the solvent components, Aspen Plus will automatically normalize the Henry's constant of the mixture to that of the available components. An error will occur if no solvents are present in all gas streams, or if Henry's parameters are not available for the Henry's components and any other components present. Note that this error can occur midway through the execution of a simulation if the calculations result in a stream that has no solvents with parameters available. If you have an all vapor feed stream, specify this in the form by entering Vapor-Only in the Valid phases field of the Streams / Input / Flash Options sheet. Specify the following to use Henry's Law: 1. Create a Henry Component list on the Components / Henry Comps form that includes all gases that should be treated as Henry's components. The Henry Components list name must appear on the Properties / Specifications / Global sheet in the Henry-Comps field, or where a Property Method is specified. Choose an Property Method that uses Henry's Law. In Aspen Plus, this set includes IDEAL and other activity coefficient Property Methods. The HENRY parameters must be available for each Henry Component value with at least one solvent. Parameters are available in the BINARY or HENRY databanks, or the parameters must be added on the Properties / Parameters / Binary Interaction / HENRY-1 form.




When using ElecNRTL for the enthalpy calculations, the infinite dilution enthalpy of the Henry's component is computed by calculating the Henry's constant of it in water. However, if water is not there, the last component in the feed flow is used instead. This means that it is necessary to supply Henry's constant for the Henry's component with the last component in the component list. The component list should be arranged so that a component with Henry parameters is at the end of the list.
