Mineral Comminution and Separation Systems

mineral processing is to adjust the size of mineral particles to adapt to the optimum size for the successive separation processes. Screens and classifiers are used to adjust the particles within prescribed and closer size range. They are arranged in many cases in conjunction with the equipment for 'size reduction', or 'comminution'.

That means more energy is required in future. In the mineral processing, most of the energy is absorbed due to impact and dissipated as heat or noise, while only a small part of energy is used to generate new surfaces [5í7]. Obviously, it is great significance to improve the efficiency of grinding process [8].
