The OWi results differ significantly (factor of 3 times) whereas the SSE method results are more consistent and show that both mill types produce fine particles roughly in proportion to the energy input. In fact, in four of the surveys, the SAG mill was found to be more efficient at producing circuit product than the ball mill. Similar results have been seen consistently across all the surveys where this approach has been used, including circuits with AG mills, pebble mills, …

When calculating rod mill power for a rod mill-ball mill circuit, do not allow for improvement in the ball mill performance. If the rod mill feed is produced with open circuit crushing, apply a 1.2 inefficiency factor to the power calculated for the rod milling stage only. If the rod mill feed will consistently be 80% passing ½" or finer, such as produced with closed circuit crushing, do not apply a rod mill inefficiency factor. The other milling efficiency …

Barrick undertook a review of the efficiency of the various grinding circuits worldwide and through the application of standardized measurements of key parameters, developed a plot of efficiency describing the various mills. The exercise begins with comprehensive sampling and modeling of the individual grinding circuits at each site. This is a difficult and painstaking procedure for the sites and they have …
