## The effect of processing parameters on energy consumption

grinding media (steel balls) on power requirements and energy consumption of a ball mill With constant mass of the steel balls (20, 30 and 40 kg), the agitator shaft speed was increased from 10 to 100% of the maximum speed, which corresponds to a speed of 50 rpm The power consumption (W) was recorded upon which milling energy consumption (J/kg) has been calculated The results were
