adjusting size particle distribution on a gold ore

Mineral processing

An important factor in both comminution and sizing operations is the determination of the particle size distribution of the materials being processed, commonly referred to as particle size analysis. Many techniques for analyzing particle size are used, and the techniques include both off-line analyses which require that a sample of the material ...

Depending on the ore and process types there can be several crushing steps and different kind of crushers have been developed for different purposes. The size reduction ration is commonly between 5 and 10 in crushing stages, i.e. if the starting size is 1 meter in two-three stages the material can be crushed down to 1 mm particle size.
