Perstorp Expands its Equalis Numerical Analysis Application Deployment

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2013

Equalis, the leading provider of numerical analysis, visualization and simulation solutions for engineers and scientists, built on the Scilab open source platform, today announced that Perstorp, a leading specialty chemicals group based in Sweden, has expanded its deployment of its Equalis solution.

Perstorp needed a cost effective solution to enable its process engineering team to perform statistics and optimization on large amounts of data. In order to facilitate this analysis they needed to import data from a production database where process data from their plants is stored. To solve their problem they turned to the Equalis solution. Through its premier software modules and industrial grade support Equalis was able to help Perstorp optimize their production processes. Perstorp has now expanded its Equalis deployment for all their process engineering.

Equalis provides premier software modules on top of the Scilab open source platform and industrial grade support through subscription programs; typically costing 90% less than purchasing equivalent software applications. Training, deployment and consulting services are also available to support customers throughout their project lifecycle. Equalis premier modules include: Code Generation, Communication Systems, Connectivity, Control and Power Systems, Fixed Point, Image and Video Processing, Instrument Control, Neural Networks, Thunder and Lightning (Parallelization), Signal Processing, Statistics, and many more.

“We are excited to be partners with Perstorp and add value to their production processes, said Neil Mitchell, COO and Co-founder, Equalis. “We look forward to further success together.

The Equalis software and support services are the perfect solution to help our engineers optimize our production processes combining full featured software and industry leading support, said Tony Persson, Process Engineer, Perstorp. Well look to Equalis in the future as our needs expand.
