### Bond Rod Mill Work Index Equipment Apparatus Review

31-03-2016 The specification for the apparatus to determining a “Bond” rod mill work index is first described in Bond Maxton (1943). It states that the apparatus is a tumbling rod mill to be operated in a locked cycle test at a fixed circulating load. The geometry of the grinding chamber is described as: mill inside diameter of 12 inches

Bond Rod Mill Grindability Test. The test determines the Bond Rod Mill Work Index which is used with Bond’s Third Theory of Comminution to calculate net power requirements when sizing ball mills*. Various correction factors may have to be applied. The test is a closed-circuit dry grindability test performed in a standard rod mill.

Measuring ore grindability in rod mills. The Bond Rod Mill Work Index is a measure of the resistance of the material to grinding in a rod mill. It can be used to determine the grinding power required for a given throughput of material under rod mill grinding conditions. It is a 'locked cycle' test conducted in closed circuit with a laboratory screen.

Rod mills normally carry 35 to 65% rod charge by volume. The limits on charge level are (1) keeping the feed end trunnion open so that feed will get into the mill, and (2) keeping the rod charge low so rods will not work their way into discharge openings where they can cause rod tangling.

Rod mills usually require greater operator attention. It is important that the rods stay essentially parallel to one another. If rods become misaligned, grinding action is lost and, more importantly, rod tangles occur. Maximum rod length is limited to about 6.1 m (20 ft). This in turn limits the length, diameter, and capacity of rod mills. The heavier rods acting upon the lifters and liners result in greater wear on the mill liners. Rod mills normally carry 35 to 65% rod
