Efficient comminution processes require a careful process design and presume a deep understanding of the grinding fundamentals as well as the appropriate machinery.


Course description

In the seminar “Crushing and grinding circuits” you will learn about the principles of comminution, how to apply these for the selection of crushing and grinding equipment, and how to optimize existing grinding circuits in order to increase product yield along with low specific production costs

Course content

Module 1: Characterization of disperse systems

Module 2: Breakage fundamentals

Module 3: Equipment

Module 4: Crushing and grinding circuits

Type of training

The course is combining both classroom lectures as well as lab visits.
