Methods of Ahmadi and Shahsavari, Berry and Bruse, Gharehgheshlagh, Horst and Bassarear, Kapur, Magdalinovich, a standard Bond test with feed sizing into limited size grades, and a standard ...
Testwork Bond Ball Mill Work Index. The Bond ball mill work index is one of the most commonly used grindability tests in mining, and is often referred to as the Bond work index . The test is a locked-cycle test where ground product is removed from test cycles and replaced by fresh feed. The test much achieve a steady-state before completion.
Standard Bond Ball Mill Grindability Test Methodprocedure. Here is the old allischalmers bond work index grindability test procedure the standard feed is prepared by stage crushing to all passing a 6 mesh sieve but finer feed can be used when necessary it is screen analyzed and packed by shaking in a 1000cc graduated cylinder and the weight of 700 cc is placed in the mill and ground dry at 250 ...
Dec 07, 2018 The test work program was carried out on those five ore samples obtained from the copper-porphyry orebodies. Total of 38 Bond work index tests, including duplicates, were done. Standard Bond ball mill test procedure were carried out on crushed -3.35 mm

The Bond Ball Mill Grindability Test is a locked-cycle laboratory grinding test. It provides the Bond Ball Mill Work Index which expresses the resistance of a material to ball milling. This Index is widely used in the mineral industry for comparing the resistance of different materials to ball milling, for estimating the energy required for grinding, and for ball mill scale-up.
Dec 14, 2015 Here is the old Allis-Chalmers Bond Work Index Grindability Test Procedure. The standard feed is prepared by stage crushing to all passing a 6 mesh sieve, but finer feed can be used when necessary. It is screen analyzed and packed by shaking in a 1000-cc graduated cylinder, and the weight of 700 cc is placed in the mill and ground dry at 250 ...
an average work index of 15.5 kWht. A very broad range of results was received, characterising the standard ore from medium to very hard. A disappointing result considering the reliance on this test globally for design and optimisation. An improved method using less mass compared to the Bond Ball Mill Work Index 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 100 passing size of 3.35 mm.
Jan 01, 2009 1.. IntroductionA Bond Ball Mill Work Index test is a standard test for determining the ball mill work index of a sample of ore. It was developed by Fred Bond in 1952 and modified in 1961 JKMRC CO., 2006.This index is widely used in the mineral industry for comparing the resistance of different materials to ball milling, for estimating the energy required for grinding, and for ball mill ...
Different materials are used as media, including ceramic balls, flint pebbles and stainless steel balls.The objective of Bond ball mill test is carried out to determine the standard work index which is defined as the specific power required to reduce a material from a notional infinite size to a P80 size of 150m.
In this regard calculation of work index of limestone made by standard Bond grindability test. Ball mill was employed to conduct the grinding test of seven different samples. Among all seven samples collected from the different faces of quarry, Bond work index of limestone Face4A results less than 20kwht, remaining 6 samples are marked as hard -
Figure 1 Uniaxial compression test machine 3- STANDARD BOND TESTS The Bonds standard ball mill is used to determine the work index value of differ ent samples. The Bond work index is defined as the kilowatt-hours per short ton required to break from infinite size to a product size of 80 passing 100 m. If the breakage
Kinetic grinding test approach to estimate the ball mill work index 343 The W i parameter is obtained from Bonds ball mill grindability test Bond, 1961. This test is performed according to the standard Bond procedure which proposed model is presented in Eq. 1. This standard grindability test
The work index of a particular material is determined in the laboratory by conducting the standard Bond grindability test. Bond developed separate tests for the rod mill and the ball mill. The simplified test method described in this paper is an alternative procedure to the ball mill grindability test.
Jun 06, 2015 This Grindability Test or Bond Ball Mill Work Index Procedure is used to determine the Bond Work Index of minus six mesh or finer feed ore samples. These equation application methods are used to process 12 ore samples in a Ball Mill using a standard ball charge.. Below describes in general terms the Bond Work Index Procedure used by a Professional Metallurgical Testing Laboratory.
Determination of the energy consumption for ore grinding in a Bond ball mill requires samples of standard size, because changes in the size of the samples cause the change of the Bond work index Magdalinovic et al., 2012. Due to the Bond test complexity and length, as well as the possibility to make mistakes during
