METSIM® Training program 2024 (Europe)

Flowsheeting in metallurgy and mining

InsPyro is your METSIM® agent in Europe. In 2024 we organize 3 training weeks for new METSIM® users, and also topical trainings on a monthly basis.

Training weeks

In general the program of the training weeks is as described below. Small adaptations can be made to make a better match with the participants interests.

  • DAY 2: Comminution
    • Particle size distribution
    • Crushing/screening unit operations
    • Recycle streams
    • Plotting overview tables
  • DAY 3: Hydrometallurgical flowsheeting and DDE
