BOND ROD MILL GRINDABILITY The Bond rod mill grindability test is performed similarly to the ball mill test. The feed sample is stage-crushed to ½" (12.5mm) and the test is run under a circulating load. The test can also be closed with various sieve sizes, but for AG/SAG mill analyses the standard 14-mesh (1.18mm) sieve is typically used.

Bond Ball Mill Grindability Test. The Bond Ball Mill Work Index (BBWi) test is carried out in a standardised ball mill with a pre-defined media and ore charge. The Work Index calculated from the testing can be used in the design and analysis of ball mill circuits. The test requires a minimum of 10kg of sample that has been stage-crushed to ...

The F.C. Bond Ball Mill is a small universal laboratory mill used in calculating the grindability of all ores. GRINDABILITY IS THE NUMBER OF NET GRAMS OF SCREEN UNDERSIZE PRODUCED PER REVOLUTION. This Ball Mill can be used for units of time (hours, minutes) or it can be used for any number of revolutions, according to the type of grind desired.

Determining the Bond work index is a standardized method for characterizing the comminution performance of mineral samples. CEMTEC uses this method for designing rod and ball mills. The comminution performance is, just like the desired comminution step and the production capacity, crucial for determining the required mill size.

The Bond rod mill grindability test is a widely used tool to estimate the response of ores to rod milling. However, the mass of ore required to conduct the test, which can typically vary from about 8 to as much as 20 kg, may represent a challenge when sample availability is critical.The present work proposes an alternative procedure, which is based on the size-mass …

The ability to simulate the Bond work index test also allows examination of truncated ball mill feed size distributions on the work index. For grinding circuits where the feed to a ball mill is sent directly to the classifier and the cyclone underflow feeds the ball mill (see Figure 3.10), a question arises as to whether this practice will alter the ball mill work index (BW i) of the material ...

Over the years, alternative procedures to the Bond grindability test have been proposed aiming to avoid the need for the standard mill or to reduce and simplify the grinding procedure. Some of them use the standard mill, while others are based on a non-standard mill or computation techniques. Therefore, papers targeting to propose a better alternative claim to improve …
