Bond Work Index FormulaEquation Mineral Processing & Extractive Metallurgy
What is the Bond Work Index FormulaEquation? In case you had forgotten, here is a classic:
You can read all the details of this now “Biblical” grinding power requirement calculation formula in Fred Bond’s original paper. You can also review the stepbystep Bond Work Index Test Procedure I posted here.
See this useful summary Table of Bond Work Index by Minerals.
For any circuit, whether a crushing circuit, a rod mill, or a closed ball mill circuit, the Work Index always means the equivalent amount of energy to reduce one ton of the ore from a very large size to 100 um.
The sample was received crushed appropriately for the ball mill test. Ball Mill Grindability Test was conducted by standard practice using 100mesh (150 pm) closing screens. The ball mill work index is shown below.
BM Wi (kWhr/st) = 17.97
BM Wi (kWhr/mt) = 19.81
