Chasm Consulting acquired by Howden

Software solutions for the mining industry.

We have been designing our mining management software programmes since 1993. Our solutions help you to ensure that your mine is safe and efficient. Our core team of developers are mining specialists, both underground and open cut environments, and also possess unique programming skills to make sure that our software is designed to suit the demanding requirements of the mining industry.

We have designed a suite of products to address your ventilation, safety and training management, and pumping needs. In addition VentsimTM is a core part of our full Ventilation on Demand system - SmartEXECTM.

Ventsim™

Ventsim™ is an underground mine ventilation simulation software package designed to model and simulate ventilation, airflows, pressures, heat, gases, financials, radon, fire, and many other types of ventilation data from a model of tunnels and shafts.

Ventsim™ was originally introduced to mining operations in 1993 to help visually design, improve and optimise underground ventilation systems. It is now licensed to over 1000 mine sites, consultants, universities, governments and research agencies around the world. Ventsim is considered the leading underground ventilation package, providing ease of use in addition to its numerous features.

The new Ventsim Visual™ ventilation software was released in 2009 and offers a graphically rich and dynamic ventilation environment with many more features than the original Ventsim Classic.
