Most of the energy in mineral processing (power and steel) is used in crushing and grinding rock. This process is simple at a high level, and able to be modelled based on simple physics. However, understanding and optimising comminution processes have presented researchers and practitioners with significant challenges.

The resulting high-frequency, high-velocity impacts cause a highly turbulent particle flow and trigger fracture nucleation and fracture propagation preferentially at and along mineral boundaries. Breakage occurs from the high-velocity stimulation of particles, where the elasticity and compressibility modules control differential particle behaviour.

How to Calculate and Solve for Energy Used in Comminution | Mineral Processing The image above represents energy used in comminution. To compute for energy used in comminution, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Constant (KR), Surface Area of Product (Ap) and Surface Area of Feed (Af).

Comminution mineral processing Flow Sheets.AH minerals processing operations function on the basis of a flow sheet depicting the flow of soHds and Hquids in the entire plant (6,13,14).
