### Energy efficiency of comminuting taconite in high-pressure ...

Further energy efficiency can be achieved by grinding taconite in a hybrid mode, whereby the material is first ground in a high-pressure roll mill and then in a ball mill. However, optimal partitioning of energy between the two mills is necessary for attaining maximum efficiency. 10 refs., 5 figs.

### Ball mill media optimization through functional ...

Plant ball mill preferential retention of coarser particles, ignored by most population balance modeling, confounds interpretation of plant grinding rates. However, when the calculated apparent cumulative grinding rates increase from the smallest to the largest particle sizes, the potential for increasing efficiency with a media size change is greatest.
