Efficient comminution processes require a careful process design and presume a deep understanding of the grinding fundamentals as well as the appropriate machinery. In the seminar “Comminution of Minerals” 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.

The course has the following objectives and outcomes:

  • material characterization in crushing and grinding circuits
  • understanding and influencing the fracture behavior in comminution processes
  • basic knowledge of machinery selection: application, design, working principles, and basic engineering of the different types of crushers and mills in mineral processing
  • process related know how: design, evaluation, and optimization of crushing and grinding circuits

Course content

Module 1: Characterization of disperse systems
Module 2: Breakage fundamentals
Module 3: Equipment
Module 4: Crushing and grinding circuits

Target Participants

This course is aimed at:

  • engineers, technicians and scientific users in the field of mineral processing, process, mechanical, environmental and chemical engineering or metallurgy
  • production, sales, maintenance, laboratory, R&D and relatedy fields

Registration deadline for the course is Monday, 27 August, 2018
