CPFD Software

Since 2006, the team at CPFD has utilized our Barracuda Virtual Reactor® software to optimize the design and operation of fluidized processes for the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical markets. We assist Refineries worldwide by addressing FCCU problems such as emissions, catalyst circulation, erosion, afterburn, and catalyst losses by simulating the transient, 3D, gas-catalyst hydrodynamics, thermal behavior, and reaction kinetics.  The same technology is also utilized for other downstream applications such as Polyolefins, Acrylonitrile, and VCM reactors.

Virtual Reactor™ has enabled our customers to increase the reliability and performance of their processes by:

  • Identifying Root Cause of underperformance
  • Virtual Testing of design or operational changes
  • Minimizing the risk of unintended consequences of proposed changes
