### Bond Tests SGS

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.

### Rod Mill an overview ScienceDirect Topics

In the rod mill, high carbon steel rods about 50 mm diameter and extending the whole length of the mill are used in place of balls. This mill gives a very uniform fine product and power consumption is low, although it is not suitable for very tough materials and the feed should not exceed about 25 mm in size.

Jan 01, 2013 The Bond rod-mill work index is used in conjunction with Bond’s third theory of comminution to merely calculate net energy requirements for sizing rod-mills. This test was originally developed in the mid 1930s by F.C. Bond. Though, it was altered in succeeding years, it has essentially remained unchanged since 1961.
