Grinding

The Autogenous/Semi-autogenous Grinding Mills are in most cases used as primary crushers. AG Crushers use the ore exclusively as their grinding media. In case the hardness and the abrasiveness of the Ore is not suitable enough to carry out the grinding process, steel balls are added in-order to assist the process; these are called SAG Crusher.

SAG Power Index (SPI) Test

Conducted in a bench-scale comminution mill, the SPI test measures the energy needed to perform a standard size reduction and is expressed as an index. It is a measure of the hardness of the ore from a SAG or AG milling perspective. The test is a batch test, run with 2 kg of ore in a standard 10 cm diameter by 30 cm long mill, and it measures

Comminution

There are various comminution methods for mineral processing. Crushing and grinding are common comminution processes, where the main aim is the liberation and reduction of the size of the ore. Crushing techniques make use of cone, jaw or gyroscopic crushers, yet grinding techniques are more often performed by milling, such as SAG or ball milling.
