Abstract. The "functional performance equa-tion for ball milling" was first pre-sented in 1988. It has now been used successfully in a substantial number of mineral-processing plants. This powerful, yet simple, tool provides a new level of understanding of closed circuit grinding.

A fuzzy controller was designed for the control flow rate inside the ball mill to avoid overfilling or emptying the mill [34]. The fuzzy system was used to optimize the ball milling circuit [35 ...

A two-stage ball milling circuit algebra was employed to predict the capacity, circulation ratio, and size distributions. Comparison of the simulated results and the observed values showed that the model represents accurately …
