Distillation Depropanizer Simulation

 Our products will help you:

  • Support your business units to achieve your goals and to meet target production levels in a safe, reliable, cost-effective and efficient way;
  • Improve performance (individual, departmental, or organizational);
  • Accelerate operator training; and
  • Train new as well as experienced operators.
Our products are designed to help trainees:
  • Master the foundational competencies of process operations;
  • Deliver critical knowledge; and
  • Improve skills and confidence.


Trainees come away with the foundational knowledge, skills, and behavioral attitudes to:Operate their processes in a safer and more reliable manner;

  • Produce on-spec products; and
  • Lower environmental incident rates.

For competency-based adult learning, a blended approach (e-learning, classroom, one-on-one) is more appropriate for an individual's style of learning. EnVision products utilize four key learning styles that are ideal for blended learning:

  • Auditory learning
  • Visual learning
  • Kinesthetic learning
  • Cerebral learning

Universal Simulations

Our PC-based, comprehensive, standardized, real-time dynamic simulation models allow trainees to practice startup, shutdown, normal operations, recovery from malfunctions, and other unit operations. They learn diagnostic and troubleshooting skills that transfer directly to the real plant.
