Process industries are particularly asset- and resource-intensive, offering significant opportunities for engineering improvements. These advancements can directly impact product and process performance, sustainable and green engineering, and ultimately corporate profitability and the bottom line.
From equipment and processes to chemical and petrochemical refining to glass and metals manufacturing, process-focused customers have used ANSYS simulation technologies to reduce overall costs, conserve energy, minimize environmental impacts, meet higher regulatory standards, and streamline operations through a range of initiatives.
Across the chemical and petrochemical industry, safety, process optimization, energy usage, emission reduction and new product innovation drive advanced engineering and technology development. ANSYS engineering software solutions and services can be used alongside experiments, testing and other process simulation tools. The advantages include detailed, high-fidelity design and analysis of equipment and processes.
Glass manufacturing is complex and resource-intensive — making it ideally suited to ongoing process improvements supported by engineering simulation. Software and simulation technologies from ANSYS can help glassmakers to model the many physical, chemical and thermal processes that occur during glass production and forming — enabling meaningful improvements in process efficiency, product quality and overall cost.
As worldwide demand for engineering materials has steadily increased, environmental pressures have intensified as well. To help address energy demands, process economics and other issues, engineering simulation via ANSYS technology is becoming a critical tool to help metals manufacturers balance time, price, sustainability and quality pressures.
