In a ball mill circuit, the "output" can be defined as the production rate of fines of the circuit. As for any output, ball mill circuit output is a function of both its inputs and efficiencies. There are two "inputs" to a ball mill circuit: the ore fed to the circuit and the power delivered by the grinding mill.

· Overgrinding does not have a significant benefit to gold recovery but reduces the mill throughput and results in higher unit costs in terms of energy, grinding media and reagent consumption. If there are frequent changes in ore hardness, grinding circuit performance is affected and poses challenges for operators to maintain the target particle size.
Abstract A worldwide survey on grinding mill circuits in the mineral processing industry was conducted. The aims of this survey are to determine how milling circuits are currently controlled, and to find out how key process variables are linked to economic benefits. The survey involves background information on the circuits, the choice of controlled and manipulated variables, the economic ...
· The mill discharge from these mills consists of slurry, which goes to the ball mills for further grinding, and coarse pebbles/rocks, which are crushed and sent back to the mill. To maximize the capacity of these circuits, the general practice is to use grates with pebble ports (reaching 100 mm) instead of normal grate openings to increase the pebble removal.

grinding circuit performance . The comminution circuit of the concentrator consists of three jaw crushers, five AG mills in "open" circuit configuration with double screen trommel attached to the mill, five cone crushers for secondary (2 crushers) and tertiary (3 crushers) crushing stage and nine ball mills in closed circuit
In previous publiions, we have described how the size specific energy (SSE) can be calculated to predict the energy required to generate new minus 75 µm material. However, if we want to benchmark the performance of fine grinding where the product can be much finer than 75 µm, clearly we require a finer marker size. If we do this, we also need a way to compare results that
· grinding circuit can range from several hundred kW to several MW; for example, the largest installed Isamill has 3 MW installed power. This quantity is small compared to the power used by a semiautogenous mill and a ball mill in a primary grinding circuit; a ball mill can have an installed power of up to 15 MW, while

Specific Energy Determination for Comminution Circuits The total specific energy (WT) to reduce in size primary crusher product to final product is given by: WT = Wa+W b+W c+W h+W s (3) where Wa = specific energy to grind coarser particles in tumbling mills Wb = specific energy to grind finer particles in tumbling mills Wc = specific energy for conventional crushing
As mill overload had been a major cause of plant downtime for the three months prior to the project initiation, the objective of this project was help Cannington personnel develop a more profound understanding of their grinding circuit; from mill feed through to the flotation circuits. In addition to the simulator, an AG mill
Grinding systems are either 'open circuit' or 'closed circuit.' In an open circuit system, the feed rate of incoming clinker is adjusted to achieve the desired fineness of the product. In a closed circuit system, coarse particles are separated from the finer product and returned for further grinding.
