PRODE, ideas that work !

Prode (Milano, Italia) combines knowledge of process engineering and software technology to provide a range of competitive software products and engineering services. We propose innovative but cost effective software products available in form of code libraries, standard and custom applications. With more than 20 years of successful installations our codes have been extensively tested in areas as process simulation and control, fluid properties, phase equilibria, heat transfer, process optimization, realtime controls.

Prode Properties
Since 1992 Prode Properties adds the most advanced problem solving features to your preferred Windows (Unix **) applications as Microsoft Excel, Matlab or your own custom software, application examples :

With Prode Properties you will be able to calculate the properties of pure fluids and mixtures (gas, vapor, liquid, solid states) as density, viscosity, thermal conductivity, cp, cv, speed of sound, Joule Thomson, isothermal compressibility, critical points, cricondentherm, cricondenbar, cloud points... solve distillation columns, phase equilibrium separations, print phase envelopes, phase diagrams, calculate dew points, bubble points, points at specified phase fraction, regress measured VLE / LLE / SLE data points for finding the best fitting parameters (BIP), calculate heating / cooling curves, hydrate equilibria, calculate safety valves (vapor and vapor+liquid flow), model compressors (polytropic solution with phase equilibria for gas and gas + liquid flow), simulate pipelines (with multiphase flow and heat transfer)...

Prode SIMulator
Prode SIMulator adds a graphical intervace and a nerwork solver on top of Prode Properties, the result is an easy to use but powerful system for process simulation, optimization etc.

Industrial Process Interface
Available in different versions since 1995 Prode interface works as a bridge between the world of industrial applications and the specialized software required for calculating thermodynamic properties. Many applications need access to rigorous thermodynamic calculations and Prode interface in union with Prode Properties allows this at effective cost and in a very simple way. Prode Interface includes a OPC server, a OPC client and a MODBUS device, the interface can receive data from inline instruments as Gas Chromatographs or from DCS systems and returns in realtime a series of calculated values, the standard version exports more than 30 different properties including critical pressure, temperature, CricondenBar, CricondenTherm, speed of sound, Joule Thomson..., custom versions are available for expanding the list of properties and providing a flexible data communication according OPC UA (Unified Architecture) specifications...
