Chemical plants system modelling experience based on the use of largely validated commercial modelling tools such as Aspen HYSYS is adapted and exploited to develop numeric routines for unitary isotopic operations: permeation, cold trapping, reversible absorption and cryogenic distillation at ITER Tritium Plant Systems. Model prediction capabilities and isotopic database inputs for first principle models are discussed. Numeric implementation of Aspen HYSYS routines are presented.
