Flowsheet Toolbar
Working with Projects:
Load a Project
At the start of a JKSimMet session, the user
selects to load a previously saved project or a
default blank project

Previously saved
projects appear in a
list
Flowsheet name

This toolbar
appears once a
flowsheet is
loaded

The default
project has a
blank
flowsheet that
can then be
added too
Build a Flowsheet:
Add Equipment
A list of equipment is displayed

Equipment is added by clicking
on the equipment and clicking
in the white area
Build a Flowsheet:
Join Units with a Stream

The user left-clicks on the unit
where the stream will come from

The user then
left-clicks on the
unit that the
stream must go
to
Feed Source

Hydrocyclones

Water Addition

Ball Mill

Units can have up to three
feed streams
Build a Flowsheet:
Add Info Block
Summary data can be
displayed on the flowsheet
using the info block

The user selects
which data will be
displayed

The user can also specify
which units and streams
will have data displayed
Legend

Annotation block for the
mill product stream, giving
a summary of stream
variables
Edit Flowsheet Data:
Edit Equipment Data
Unit data can be edited by double-
clicking on the unit

Data can now be viewed,
and data on the white
background can be edited
by the user
Equipment data window
for a ball mill

These model parameters
are used to calculate ball
mill performance
Edit Flowsheet Data:
Edit Port Data

Stream data can be
edited by right-clicking on
the stream

Data can now be viewed,
and data on the white
background can be edited
by the user
Engine Room Toolbar
Simulate
The first step is to click on
the Simulation tool button
Simulate In Simulation mode, the user defines
the characteristics of the circuit, such
as:
feed rate
feed sizing
ore breakage properties
equipment characteristics
water additions

JKSimMet then uses models to
predict circuit performance
variables such as:
stream flow rates and sizings
stream densities
power draw in mills

Then the user can configure
which portion of the
flowsheet will be simulated
and various control settings
When the Simulation engine is
started by the user, JKSimMet
calculates the steady state
performance of the flowsheet

JKSimMet then displays key
stream data in a convenient
summary (configurable stream
overview)
Using the Results:
View the Results
When simulation is
complete, the predictions
of stream flow rate and
sizing can be viewed

The results of Simulation
are the predictions of
performance - these
appear in the “Sim”
column
Using the Results:
Graph the Results

Select Stream

New
Select Graph

This example shows the
calculated feed and
product for a
Hydrocyclone
Using Simulation Output:
Report the Results
Summary reports of results are
created and modified using the
Reports tool

The user can choose which
data will be included in the
report

The report is
generated in a
Excel File
Getting On-Line Help

On-line help is accessible from the toolbar

JKSimMet comes with a
comprehensive help
system that describes the
models and how to do
typical tasks
