1997-12-1 · This is in contrast to autogenous (ag) and semi-autogenous (sag) mill circuits where simulation techniques are now used as standard in most design projects. Undoubtedly the limited inroads that simulation has made in ball mill circuit design is due to the historic success of Bond's method [1] in crusher-ball mill and rod mill- ball mill circuits.

Grinding Circuit

Jaw and gyratory crushers are used for initial size reduction to convert big rocks into small stones. This is generally followed by a cone crusher. A combination of rod mill and ball mills are then used if the ore must be ground below 325 mesh (45 μm). Instead of grinding the ore dry, slurry is used as feed for rod or ball mills, to avoid dusting.
