The ability to simulate the Bond work index test also allows examination of truncated ball mill feed size distributions on the work index. For grinding circuits where the feed to a ball mill is sent directly to the classifier and the cyclone underflow feeds the ball mill (see Figure 3.10), a question arises as to whether this practice will alter the ball mill work index (BW i) of the material
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
