Dear All,

I would appreciate your opinion, if you could give me some indication on our ball consumption at our factory, do you think that there is a room for significant improvement?

if you want to reduce ball consumption, reduce your ore feed size. 35 mm is large https://www.911metallurgist.com/typical-average-grinding-ball-consumption/
