### Quantifying the energy efficiency of fine grinding

Two of the most popular methods for estimating grinding energy requirements are the Bond operating work index (OWi) and the Morrell specific comminution energy method. Both relate the comminution energy to the reduction in the 80 th percent passing size of the feed and product streams (F 80 and P 80 ).

### Quantifying Grinding Efficiency Grinding
