Membrane gas separation systems are implemented and have led to remarkable profits in both processes and products. This study presents the modeling and simulation of membrane gas separation systems using the Aspen Plus® V8.6. A FORTRAN user model and a numerical solution procedure have been developed to characterize hollow fiber membrane modules. The main benefit of this model is that it can be easily incorporated into a commercial simulator and used as a unit operation model in complex systems. A comparison between the model and the empirical cases at different operation conditions shows that calculated values are in good agreement with measured values. This model is capable for future developments as well as design and performance analysis of multicomponent gas permeation systems prior to experimental realization.
