Size reduction is generally accomplished in several stages, as there are practical limitations on the ratio of size reduction through a single stage. Comminution is the science of the size reduction of rocks into fine material. Crushing and grinding are used in combination with classification process in mineral process plants.
Physical separation of minerals requires that mineral particles to be liberated by comminution. Successful separation techniques require the reduction of particles dimensions corresponding to the scale of mineralogical texture.
Antek’s hands-on experience in design and development of many comminution circuits worldwide, with incorporation of the equipment and services of well known crushing and grinding mill manufacturers, provides our clients with the most efficient solution, while obtaining the desired particle size distribution, and maintaining lowest level of steel and energy consumption.
- Autogenous and seminautogenous grinding
- Conventional rod and ball mill circuits
- HPGR circuits
- Conventional classification by screening, wet or dry
- Hydraulic classification (cyclones or hydroclassifiers)
