Outotec’s HSC Chemistry 10 offers major upgrade
Sudbury, Ont. - A major upgrades to Outotec’s HSC Chemistry process modeling platform, widely used in the metallurgical and chemical industry and universities for R&D, process design, is now available. The HSC Chemistry 10 offers many new features, faster operation, and improved user interface.
HSC Chemistry 10 is the result of more than 50 years of development effort, hundreds of hours of discussions with end users, and decades of industry experience; it is truly a stateof- the-art process simulation package that seamlessly integrates into the wider metallurgical and chemical engineering process design environment.
Metallurgical and chemical process technology must always be tailored for the local raw materials, energy sources and legislation, because the ores and secondary raw materials are unique at every site. Process flowsheet modeling is the basic tool, which makes it possible to optimize process recoveries, grades, OPEX, CAPEX, KPI guarantees, engineering data, environmental footprints, and more.
HSC Sim module is able to simulate the whole life cycle of metals and chemicals including mineral processing, smelting, hydrometallurgical refining, precious metals recovery, and recycling. With HSC, a process designer can create a competitive and sustainable process.
HSC LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) tools make it possible to understand and optimize the process not only from the technical and economic point of view, but also considering the environmental impact. It is critical to do this at the process design stage as it is difficult and expensive, if not impossible, to make changes after the engineering, construction, and start-up stages.
The new HSC Chemistry 10 has a long list of new features. HSC’s new features include:
• New subscription-based licensing replaces
old perpetual licensing
