HTRI announces new SmartPM™ release
SmartPM 3.0 integrates HTRI technology for improved exchanger and network performance monitoring and predictive maintenance
Acquired by HTRI in 2016, SmartPM is primarily used in crude refinery preheat trains. The software aids management of fouling by closely monitoring performance to assist with predictive maintenance, thus reducing energy costs and increasing operating margins. Its capabilities also extend beyond preheat trains to other shell-and-tube exchanger networks.
SmartPM has been implemented and thoroughly tested in refineries and is being used worldwide. The new capability to import Xist cases in SmartPM 3.0 allows users to more rapidly build network models and reconcile plant data. Implementing HTRI heat transfer and pressure drop methods significantly improves reliability of the predictions. The software’s built-in data historian can export performance data to Xist for further analysis, such as design enhancements, equipment changes, or revamps.
