Quantifying the energy efficiency of fine grinding ...

The apparent inefficiency of SAG mills when using Bond analysis is widely understood to be due to the difference in the slopes of the size distributions. In contrast, when the SSE75 was calculated, it showed the SAG mill consumed 20% less energy to produce final product material than the ball mill. Since the aim of a comminution circuit is to generate final product material, the SSE methodology gives a fairer indication of energy efficiency.
