Maximizing throughput and energy efficiency

Comminution is the most energy intensive process stage in the mining industry. It can account to more than 50 percent of the total energy used in a mine. While the head grades are constantly declining, more sustainable technologies and solutions are required to process hard, variable and low-grade ore bodies.
