Comminution

Grinding Solutions offers an extensive range of comminution services, ranging from SAG mill testing to fine and ultrafine grinding. Tests range from industry standards, such as Bond Work Index Testing, to cutting-edge techniques such as pulp chemistry monitoring, to help optimise comminution circuits. We are also a Metso accredited laboratory for fine grinding.

We have comminution equipment including ball mills, rod mills and a range of crushing equipment. This allows Grinding Solutions to offer a unique mineral comminution service.

To support our crushing and grinding capabilities, we offer a wide range of classification options, including a wide range of hydrocyclones, and particle size measurement.

Grinding Solutions can also provide detailed testing and consultancy with regard to grinding media with its laboratory facilities providing programmes for media wear characterisation.  Strong ties with global grinding media suppliers give access to a wide variety of grinding medias allowing for the provision of comprehensive testing and research for grinding media selection.  Please click here to see a more detailed review of the grinding media testing and sales services offered.
