Grinding Media Optimisation

Grinding Solutions offers a grinding media optimisation program for SMD and IsaMills. Tests are carried out using various media types and sizes to help optimise a plant’s metallurgical performance and minimise the operating costs.

Metallurgical performance is optimised by ensuring the particles are milled to the optimal liberation size as determined by quantitative mineralogical analysis (e.g. ZEISS Mineralogic).

Operating costs are minimised by ensuring that the mill operating conditions are set to give minimum media and machine wear. A standard test program includes a calibrated silica sand to determine relative media and machine wear rates for varying media types and mill operating conditions. Both vertical and horizontal laboratory mills are used which can operate in either batch or continuous mode.
