The urgency of the discussed issue is caused by the need to increase the quality of the prepared gas and to increase the competence of engineering staffof low-temperature gas separation plant using computer modeling systems. The main aim of the study: to create software package that simulates the changing technological performance of low-temperature separation unit in real time study the effect of single unit work on the system as a whole. The methods used in the study: chemical processes mathematical modeling method. The results: a program of three-phase separator calculating - one of the most important elements of low-temperature separation - considering the influence of the control parameters of the system (control valves for gas and liquid), the geometric dimensions of the unit and generally accepted principles of the separation of the three-phase mixture (Stokes' law, the laws of the phase equilibrium and so on) was created. Developed module allows to create interactive software package that simulates the work of low-temperature separation in real time.
