#### Modelling the Specific Grinding Energy and BallMill Scaleup

Bond work index: Wj= kWhlshort ton From Eq. (6), the specific grinding energy is: W = kWhlshort ton or W = kWhlt For throughput 400 tIh production, the total required ballmill power is: kWhlt x 400 tIh = 34092 kW. If six (6) ballmills are used, the power drawn from each mill is: (34092/6) = 5682 kW.
