He has provided extensive support to Indian Process Industry in various aspects of Process Systems Engineering through consultancy and customized software development. For the Fertilizer Industry, rigorous mathematical models of various reactors in Ammonia Process (namely, Primary Reformer, Secondary Reformer, Shift Converters, Methanator, Ammonia Converter), and also of Urea Reactor, have been developed and implemented in commercial simulators for several operating plants in India. The mathematical models of ammonia converters have been developed using the building block approach so that these can be easily customized for a variety of configurations. The models have been tested on Topsoe converters (Radial Bed) as well as Casale converters (Axial-Radial beds). For refineries and petrochemical plants, simulation based assistance has been provided through projects on front-end design studies, debottlenecking studies, and design verifications.
