About Cycad Process®
Projects using Cycad Process®
• Revamped PFD library under development - started releasing new PFD units;
• Corrected PSD issue;
• Corrected issue when switching between component databases;
• Minor tweaks
Cycad Process® can and has been used to model most processes in mineral industries.
Full graphical interface conforming to typical Windows standards, Drag-and-drop interface, Extensive library of process units, Properties entered through an intuitive
Sequential modular approach to simulations, Intelligent, automatic calculation of recycle streams to minimize solution time, No ordering of the process
Large library of calculation based on published solution methods, Energy balance integrated with all calculations, Direct correspondence between the plant,
Extensive component database with physical and basic thermodynamic data, Can easily add user-specified components, Can export and import components from
Can script your own process unit, Uses C# language for scripting, Can access many internal functions/methods, Can reference all properties
Extensive reaction options available
Extent/conversion-based reactions, Rate-based (liquid or gas phases), Gas mass transfer, Shrinking particle/core models, 2D-shrinking core model.
Particle size distributions
Cycad Process® can track and calculate the changes in particle sizes in processes such as milling and leaching.
Designers are used to target process unit outputs and sometimes referred to as ‘controllers’, Unit-specific and flowsheet (general) designers are
Engineering quality drawings, Block flow diagrams, Process flow diagrams, P&I diagrams currently under development.
Comparing results between different versions or calculations can be difficult and time consuming for even a relatively small balance. Cycad
Uses Levenberg–Marquardt algorithm to fit parameters, Can be used to fit most process unit parameters using measured data.
