NIAflow Basic

The Basis of Professional Process Simulation

Mining Process

NIAflow Basic is a free simulation software for the mineral processing industry. With its intuitive graphical interface it can model and calculate simple dry, mechanical processes focused on crushing and screening.

By using NIAflow, up to 10 machines can be represented in a printable flow chart and the mass flow can be calculated. On the basis of these calculations, machine-specific labels are displayed with the current data. Process optimization, pre-calculation of product or even the engineering of complete plants are thus supported. Besides the basic machines for processing mineral raw materials, the entire HAVER & BOECKER equipment portfolio is already deposited in the object list. It also comprises a classifying screen design with up to 4 decks.

NIAflow Basic can be used to become acquainted with the program for free, for a process simulation of smaller plants with up to 10 objects and for the use in lectures at technical colleges and universities.

The following equipment and functions are included in the basic version:

Available Equipments

  • Stockpile
  • Silo
  • Mining Truck
  • Front Loader

NIAflow Aggregates

Digital Process Simulation for the Gravel and Sand Industry

Gravel and Sand Industry

Aggregates is the extensive full version of the NIAflow simulation software for processing plants in the aggregates as well as the gravel and sand industries. Contrary to the basic version NIAflow Basic, the object number of machines on the drawing sheet is not limited. Thus large plants for wet and dry processing of mineral raw materials can be shown schematically.

In NIAflow Aggregates, all common machines and objects of the aggregates and the gravel and sand industries are already available. The simulation program can be used to calculate closed circuits. Moreover, it has access to data of more than 8,000 screening media and enables a classifying screen design with more than four decks.

NIAflow Aggregates is suitable for the output of complete project lists and enables the creation of tender documents. A full print mode also enables the presentation of all acquired data on paper documents. Besides the license, this version and every higher software version include an annual service package for a full maintenance of the software.
