Simulation is an important tool to balance, compare and investigate processes. Due to new investigations and the variety of processes not every process step is available as unit operation in simulation software. Absence of unit operations is evaded with help of simplifications, assumptions and usage of similar process steps. At best unit operations should calculate in and outlet streams based on sophisticated models according to the theory in literature. Therefor the aim of this work was to generate a pervaporation unit operation on the basis of experimental results working on AspenPlus© platform.
