Hello,

Does anyone know of any free software that will allow me to easily create chemical process flow diagrams, that have all the symbols for various components (distillation columns, heat exchangers, etc)?

Thank you

It'd be painful, but MS Paint could do it. I'd really suggest getting a hold of MS Visio.

I know there are programs that electrical engineers use to simulate circuits, I wonder why an analog for chemical processes doesn't exist?

There are plenty of options, but none that I know of are free. I exclusively used Visio throughout school for making process flow diagrams.
