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

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

At least 15 to 20 kg sample material is required to simulate a closed grinding circuit in a ball or rod mill. The Rod Mill Work Index (RWI) is used for particle size determination in a size range from 25 mm down to 2.1 mm whereas Ball Mill Work Index (BWI) is used for the range from 2.1 mm down to 100 m.

Essa Bond Test-Work Equipment. Internationally accepted mineral metallurgical standard test procedures to determine the physical properties of ores include the Bond ball mill work index and the Bond rod mill work index.

Introduction. A 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

The ball mill work index laboratory test is conducted by grinding an ore sample prepared to 100% passing 3.36 mm (6 mesh) to product size in the range of 45-150 m (325-100 mesh), thus determining the ball mill work index (Wi B or BWi). The work index calculations across a narrow size range are conducted using the appropriate laboratory work

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
