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 A project is loaded by dragging the red project book on to the workspace

This toolbar appears once a flowsheet is loaded

The default project has a blank flowsheet that can then be added too

Flowsheet name

Working with Projects:

Save a Project
The user can save the project at any time using standard Windows file commands and buttons

JKSimMet will ask the user for a file name and where the file should be saved to

Build a Flowsheet:
Add Equipment
Equipment is added by rightclicking on the flowsheet and selecting Add from a menu A list of equipment is displayed

The equipment can now be dragged from this list on to the flowsheet by the user

Build a Flowsheet:

Flip an Equipment Unit

An equipment unit can be made to face the opposite direction by right-clicking and then selecting Flip from the pop-up menu

The unit now faces the other way

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 JKSimMet joins the two units with a stream

Feed Source
Water Addition Hydrocyclones

Ball Mill

Units can have up to three feed streams

Build a Flowsheet:

Add Annotation Blocks

Summary data can be displayed on the flowsheet using the Annotation tool

The user selects which data will be displayed

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


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 rightclicking on the unit, and selecting Equipment from the menu

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 associated unit and selecting the port from the menu

Data can now be viewed, and data on the white background can be edited by the user

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

The first step is to click on the Simulation tool button

The Simulation Window opens 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

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
Graphs of feed and product sizings for a unit are viewed by rightclicking on the unit and selecting Graph from the menu

This example shows the calculated feed and product sizing for a ball mill

The user can build other graphs using the Custom Graph tool

All aspects of a graph can then be customised by the user

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

A report is generated for equipment and streams, ready for printing or copying into a document

The report contains the simulation conditions and the prediction results

Using Simulation Output:

The Results Overview
Key stream data can be viewed conveniently using the Overview tool

The Overview Window allows the user to configure and view a one page summary of stream data

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
