Download Sankey software and Sankey diagrams
The downloads on this page is our service for you: you can download a trial version of e!Sankey, the leading software for drawing Sankey diagrams. The trial version is free-of-charge and allows testing all functions of the software, before you decide to purchase licenses of e!Sankey.
Further we are providing Sankey diagram as samples for download. Get inspirations on how to draw appealing diagrams.
Download e!Sankey 4
You can download the trial version e!Sankey 4 free-of-charge and without obligation. Test the software for 14 days.
With just a few limitations (watermark, no EMF export) the trial version can be used to test all features of the software and draw Sankey diagrams. The diagrams created with the trial versions can be opened and edited later on when a licensed version has been purchased.
System requirements: Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10, Microsoft .NET 4.6 Framework must be installed, working memory at least 1 GB RAM, 250 MB free disk space. Live Links (in e!Sankey pro & e!Sankey calc) require Microsoft Excel 2007 or higher.
Sankey diagrams made with e!Sankey
Whether you are working in energy management, analyzing material streams in a production system, or your tasks revolve around supply chain, logistics and goods being shipped:
Sankey diagrams created with e!Sankey will really improve the way you are visualizing energy flows and mass flows.
We are providing new Sankey diagrams that we like and that are worth sharing. These files can be downloaded in the .sankey file format and opened in e!Sankey (latest version 4).
The original: energy efficiency of a steam engine
The first illustration of energy flows using arrows proportional to the quantity was created by the Irish engineer Captain Matthew Henry Phineas Riall Sankey. Even back then it includes many elements making Sankey diagrams so popular today.
We have recreate this diagram using our software e!Sankey. Just look how brilliant it was at that time.
By the way, you find a little insight into the history of Sankey diagrams just here.
Another retro style diagram
Many generations of students and professionals have been using the 'Dubbel - Handbook of Mechanical Engineering. It was first published back in 1914.
We have picked one classic black/white visualization of the "Heat Flow in a Boiler" from Dubbel's book and have recreated it in e!Sankey. It can be downloaded here.
The original retro look has been maintained with heat losses shown with a diagonal hatched pattern just in the original figure.
U.S. energy consumption per capita
This Sankey diagram shows energy use per capita in the United States for the year 2006. More recent data is available, but the general picture hasn't changed: Huge energy losses occur in electricity generation and combustion engines of motor vehicles.
The diagram has been created with e!Sankey 4 and is based on data by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).
You can download the .sankey file, and use it as a starting point for your own Sankey diagram.
Material & process flow diagram
Using e!Sankey you can also show different flows within one diagram, e.g. materials and energy. This is very helpful, when you would like to view production processes holistically.
The following diagram shows, how such a production process can be illustrated.
The advantage of this illustration catches the eye immediately: losses and energy are displayed separately from the material flow from left to right.
