Why Comminution need divide into several stage for breaking
1. limiting by machines strength
2. limiting by machines characteristics
3. limiting by Nip angle
4. different particle size needs different breaking force.
5. avoid over grinding

Rolls Crusher

Roll crushers, or crushing

rolls, are still used in some
mills, although they have
been replaced in most
installations by cone
crushers. They still have a
useful application in handling
friable, sticky, frozen, and
less abrasive feeds, such
as limestone, coal, chalk,
gypsum, phosphate, and
soft iron ores.

Dry or Wet grinding

1. Wet grinding
2. Dry gringing
Hardinge mill
Several factors influence the efficiency of ball mill grinding.
The pulp density of the feed should be as high as possible,
consistent with ease of flow through the mill. It is essential that
the balls are coated with a layer of ore; too dilute a pulp
increases metal-to-metal contact, giving increased steel
consumption and reduced efficiency.

Ball mills should operate between 65 and 80% solids by weight,

depending on the ore. The viscosity of the pulp increases with
the fineness of the particles, therefore fine-grinding circuits may
need lower pulp densities.

The efficiency of grinding depends on the surface area of the

grinding medium. Thus, balls should be as small as possible and
the charge should be graded such that the largest balls are just
heavy enough to grind the largest and hardest particles in the

Tumbling Mill Operations

1. Particle size of feeding

2. Amount of feeding
3. Pulp density
4. Amount of media
5. Rotating speed
6. Grinding time
7. Wet grinding or dry grinding
Wet grinding is generally used in mineral processing
operations because of the overall economies of
operation. The advantages of wet grinding are:

1. It consumes lower power per tonne of product

2. It has higher capacity per unit mill volume
3. It makes possible the use of wet screening or
classification for close product control
4. It eliminates the dust problem
5. It makes possible the use of simple handling and
transport methods such as pumps, pipes, and

Introduction of sizing device in an open circuit, avoid
over-grinding and increases the energy available for useful
grinding as long as there is an ample supply of unfinished

These two circuits can be used in secondary crushing or grinding process. Normal circuit
always used in the ore after blasting. It has less fine particle size ore. However, reverse
circuit always used when original ore has large amount of fine particle size ore.
