apiMAX™

apiMAX™ is a proprietary simulation program capable of modeling biomass-based process industries

These industries include cellulosic biofuels & biochemicals, pulp & paper, and pellet manufacturing.

Advantages of apiMAX™ include:

  • User-friendly interface
  • Easy construction of process flow sheets by dragging and dropping equipment onto the flow sheet from standard equipment libraries
  • Simple process stream creation using the mouse or simply “bumping” two pieces of equipment together
  • Large library of pulp and paper, biorefining and energy equipment
  • Open environment allowing easy creation of additional equipment by user
  • Rapid creation of energy and material balance for simple or detailed process engineering projects

American Process offers a variety of support services for apiMAX™ including:

  • General technical support
  • On-site training
  • Model design
  • Data reconciliation
  • Model update
  • Model conversion to apiMAX™ from other simulation software
