Mines: separating commercially valuable minerals
- In the field of extractive metallurgy, mineral processing, also known as ore dressing, is the process of separating commercially valuable minerals from their ores.
- Mineral processing can involve four types of unit operation: comminution (particle size reduction), sizing (separation of particle sizes by screening or classification), concentration (by taking advantage of physical and surface chemical properties) and dewatering (solid/liquid separation). In all of these processes, the most important considerations are the economics of the processes and this is dictated by the grade and recovery of the final product
- Crushing and grinding are the two primary comminution processes. Crushing is a dry process in crushing are-jaw crushers, gyratory crushers and cone crushers. While grinding is generally performed wet in rod mills and ball mills
- Our grinding balls have always been active in crushers, ball mill, sag mill and rod mill for the field of comminution.
