The parameter M i takes on different values depending on the comminution machine: M ia for primary tumbling mills (AG/SAG mills) that applies above 750 μm; M ib for secondary tumbling mills (e.g., ball mills) that applies below 750 μm; M ic for conventional crushers; and M ih for HPGRs. The values for M ia, M ic, and M ih were developed using the SMC Test® combined with a database of ...
