CASE STUDIES ON THE EFFECT OF SAMPLE DIMENSIONS

The Bond ball mill work index is the most commonly used comminution testwork procedure in the Millpower 2000 database, with more than double the number of results of the second most common (the combined drop-weight test methods). The ball mill work index is defined as “the kW-hr per ton to break from infinite size to 100 µm” (Bond, 1952).

COMMINUTION DISINTEGRATION

2015-4-24  an existing SABC (SAG mill with recycle crushing and a single stage ball mill). First, a pre-crush stage using HPGR was introduced to minimise the generation of critical size material in the primary mill. The aim was to reduce a portion of the feed material below critical size and generate more fines to decrease the load in the primary mill.
