hy a single value. Therefore the grindability cannot be charaterized as a dif ference or quotient of two numbers. In industrial practice, however, as a convention according to Lehmann and Haese (1955) grindability is defined as the relation of specific surface increase (cm2/g, determined using the Blaine test) to energy expense (Jig of kWh/g).

grindability test (Bond, 1961). Chemical and mineral composition of the ore types The copper and gold contents of the six samples range from 0.28 to 0.77% Cu and 0.19 to 0.75 ppm Au. The main copper minerals are chalcopyrite, and chalcocite-group minerals, which have the general formula Cu 2-x S and include chalcocite, digenite,

Accessory laboratory equipment in the batch ore testing section includes one binocular microscope, one petrographic microscope, one ultraviolet lamp, one Beckman electric pH meter, one LaMotte pH …

The Bond work index is not solely a material constant but is influenced by the grinding conditions. For example, the finer the grind size desired, the higher is the kWh/t required to grind to that size. Magdalinovic [38] measured the Bond work index of three ore types using different test screen sizes. He produced a correlation between the mass of test …

Standard Bond Grindability Test procedure was carried out to determine the actual work indices of six samples. Batch grinding tests were also performed to determine model parameters. ... with the PBM. Impure limestone, fluorite, chalcopyrite, and hematite ores were used to run both tests with a good confidence level (SSE less than 0.4 in all ...

It can be suggested that the logarithmic function in Equation (7) could be a valuable tool as a quick alternative to Bond's standard test in the day-by-day grindability control. The comparison between w i and w i,e 2 (Equation (8)) shows a linear fit whose slope is unity and the ordinate to the origin is negligible, with a correlation ...

Microwave pretreatment produces coarser chalcopyrite particles with a wide range of sizes. This effect is more significant in bed breakage compared with ball milling. Micro-flotation test results showed that in ball milling, treated and untreated materials have similar metallurgical performance and there is a little difference (1%) between the ...

Table 1 – Summary of Grindability Test Procedures 1Weight requested for the test, for typical ores (S.G. = 2.8g/cm3). Denser samples require more weight, proportional to the S.G. 2Approximate weight consumed in the test for typical ores (S.G. = 2.8g/cm3). 3Minimum whole core size required for a complete test. Partial results can sometimes be ...

In this study, three types of iron ores with 3-0.425 mm were comminuted to −0.425 mm via the piston-die compression unit or the dry ball mill at essentially the same grinding degrees. Liberation ...

The test for grindability (ASTM D409) utilizes a ball-and-ring-type mill in which a 50 g sample of closely sized coal is ground for 60 revolutions after which the ground product is screened through a 200-mesh sieve and the grindability index is calculated from the amount of undersize produced using a calibration chart. The results are converted ...

The Bond standard grindability test produces a work index that is a measure of grindability for a given ore. There are three variants of this test; crushing work index, rod mill work index, and ball mill work index [2]. ... Impact of mechanochemical effect on chalcopyrite leaching. Int. J. Miner. Process.

He considered that the circulating load in the standard Bond test has lower grindability and shows slower grinding behaviour. The Bond test is simulated until a …

Bond's grindability test is a widely accepted test for the energy consumption of ore from coarser size to finer size. Stage crushing was used to make representative samples which can be passed through a 6 mesh sieve. The mill was loaded with a 700 cc sample weight. These experiments have been carried out in a typical ball …

The flotation recovery of chalcopyrite was only slightly reduced after HVP treatment of 130 pulse discharges. However, under the same test conditions, the flotation recovery of pyrite was reduced by 64.1 per cent in average. The flotation behaviour of the two single minerals were in agreement with their surface oxidation behaviour in HVP …

Numerous studies have addressed the role of ultrasonication on floatability of minerals macroscopically. However, the impact of acoustic waves on the mineral hydrophobicity and its physicochemical aspects were entirely overlooked in the literature. This paper mainly investigates the impact of ultrasonic power and its time on the wettability and floatability …
