Physical Testing

Physical Testing

The energy consumed during comminution is a significant cost in the processing of ores and minerals – especially with low grade or “difficult” ores. So what’s the cost of grinding your ore to the finesse that’s needed for processing? Should you target for maximum recovery or cost reduction? How can you identify and size the optimum grinding circuit for your ore?

Whether it’s for a single scoping test or a complete set of variability tests for a full feasibility study, our laboratories are equipped to determine the power requirements during comminution using industry-standard crushing and grindability tests.

These include bond rod mill Wi, bond ball mill Wi, bond abrasion index, bond crushing Wi and JK drop weight tester - used to undertake semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill tests and SAG mill comminution (SMC) testing.
