Learning together
Plant layout and particle size distribution

Course Description

The training is intended to enable the participants to independently map mineral processing flowcharts into NIAflow®. Knowledge about the usual processes and machines is a required. The training takes place in the style of a workshop. Each participant runs NIAflow® in its current version on its own or a provided PC or notebook.

Course Content

Getting started

Familiarize yourself with NIAflow’s basics. Setup calculation defaults. Adjust label layers and label setup to your requirements.

Start a new project

Define your project, setup plants and add your project team.

Drawing a flow sheet

Design your flow sheet by simply dragging objects onto the drawing area and connecting them with one another. Connecting lines represent materials flowing between objects.

Define materials

Materials are defined in the entry points of the flowsheet mostly in storage objects. Any storage item without an in-line is considered an entry point and has to be set up by the user. Material properties like tonnage and bulk density particle size distribution have to defined. Several definitions of PSD will be introduced.

Define objects

Define objects in three detailing levels. The basic setting utilizes a minimum set of data required calculate the object while the detailed level completely describes the technical properties. This setting can be used for tender documents. Depending on the kind of object the required data vary. While some objects are fairly simple to define e.g. a chute while others require some knowledge on processing machinery e.g. sorting devices, or screens.

Visualize settings and results

Learn how to utilize NIAflow’s label function to display object- and material- data on the flowsheet. Group labels in layers to only show the information required at the time.

Working with operating modes

Use operating modes to model different scenarios. Operating modes record the output tonnages of storage objects, splitter settings, and which crusher or mill product is active.

Setup the result print

Learn how to organize the project print. Setup printing groups e.g. for completed objects.
