An application to formulate and to solve mathematical models of multieffect evaporation systems Is presented. The application allows that any user, without being an expert in optimization, simulation and chemical engineering can simulate, optimize, make re-engineering or synthesize a multieffect evaporation system. The information of the problem is entered by means of tables or flowsheet and the application formulates the model and it solves it using a commercial optimizer. In the mathematical model the number of effects, the condenser and a heater/cooler for the final product, are considered. In addition, the use of software eliminates the necessity of verifying the model, it allows to model in a fast and reliable way, considerably reducing the time consumed in the analysis from the specification of the model until the optimal result is obtained.
