BedRock Software, LLC. (BedRock) announces another industry first with the creation of AggFlowSite, the next evolution in plant simulation and optimization for the global aggregate industry. AggFlowSite delivers the full functionality and power of the traditional AggFlow program to users via the internet. “AggFlowSite is perfect for individual plant simulations, small producers, consultants, dealers or equipment manufacturers working on a single project. Or any plant analysis where multiple remote people need to access the project. It will enhance and expand the way industry professionals communicate set-ups, share ideas and develop solutions. ” said Bryan Lewis, President of BedRock and inventor of the AggFlow Program.
About the Program
AggFlow (and now AggFlowSite) simulations help improve profitability by identifying inefficiencies and bottlenecks; by accurately assessing the impact of proposed changes or new equipment before they are made; and by reducing plant down-time and production errors. The program also helps track and reduce emissions and fuel consumption by refining overall plant efficiency. It is currently available in English, Spanish and French versions and is extremely popular because it is accurate and easy to use.
Aggregate producers, equipment manufacturers and dealers around the globe use the program to simulate aggregate and mining operations. Users can calculate mass aggregate and water balances flowing through a plant simulation using stationary andmobile equipment. Thus optimizing and maximizing production of desired products.
Users can select from the pre-populated equipment data library or install their own equipment models in the program using the generic equipment application. BedRock is constantly adding to the AggFlow data library and will add equipment upon request. Currently, the program provides calculations for more than 3,000 models of aggregate crushing, screening and washing equipment. A complete HELP system is built directly into the program and is always available. In addition, both on-line and classroom training sessions are available.
AggFlowSite provides exactly the same functionality as AggFlow, but is specifically intended for unlimited users simulating one aggregate site. The Site Administrator (purchaser) designates and manages who can access the site. Internet Access is required to operate AggFlowSite. BedRock intends to make AggFlowSite as affordable as possible and will initially price individual AggFlowSite programs at $1,200.00 USD each. In contrast, the traditional AggFlow program is designed for one user simulating multiple plants and does not require internet connectivity to operate. It is priced at $6,900.00 USD per program. Annual renewal for both program versions is $1,200.00 USD. Please visit the AggFlow website: www.aggflow.com for more detailed information.
BedRock Software, LLC has been providing the AggFlow program to the global aggregate industry since 1993. AggFlow is recognized as the global standard plant simulation and analysis tool.
