Training

InsPyro provides courses on materials science, metallurgy, process modelling (e.g. METSIM) and CFD. We regularly organize courses at our offices in Leuven, Belgium. Keep an eye on this page or subscribe to our newsletter to receive course announcements.

For groups at companies, we provide custom training on location ranging from basic metallurgical principles up to advanced thermochemistry. The audience can be engineers, operators, or commercial professionals. Contact us to define your training project.

Course program – 20-24 April 2020

NEWS: As some participants encounter travel limitations for the coming weeks, we offer the possibility to participate on-line!

Our yearly organised course program is given in English and aims at people active in the metal processing industry. The course can be a refreshment of the metallurgical principles for engineers, or give hands-on metallurgists a solid theoretical background. There are 5 modules:

METSIM training – 11-14 May

METSIM is the world standard in flowsheet modelling for mining and metallurgy. InsPyro will host a METSIM course online (Western Europe timezone). Topics include basic model set-up up to advanced and dynamic features. The course has a modular set-up, so participants can select the most relevant topics.

Tentative program

  • Introduction to METSIM
    Basic APL Commands, Simple Flowsheeting, Chemistry & Controls
  • Comminution Module
    Crushing/Screening, Particle Sizes, Grinding/Classification
  • Hydrometallurgical Flowsheeting
    Leaching, Solvent Extraction, Electrowinning
  • Pyrometallurgical Flowsheeting
    Smelting, Chemistry, Dynamic Simulation, Batch Processing

Feel free to contact us for separate training if this time does not fit. To register or for more information, contact Els Nagels via email or call +32 16 298 492.

Practical details

  • Leuven, Kapeldreef 60 or online
  • Daily 09:30-16:00
  • 450€ per day per person
    1600€ per person for 4 days
