New research by SMC Testing's Dr Steve Morrell has outlined a practical methodology to help the mining industry reduce carbon emmissions by up to 34.5 megatonnes/year, or 43.5% compared to using traditional comminution technologies.
The Global Mining Standards and Guidelines Group (GMSG) recently recognised the SMC Test® through the publication of its guideline “Morrell method for determining comminution circuit speciﬁc energy and assessing energy utilization eﬃciency of existing cir
By leveraging our extensive, 35000-strong database, SMC Testing now offers a new and deep insight into ore hardness via focused analysis of global trends and is able to position a specific ore deposit within its commodity (valuable mineral content) hardn
A landmark improvement has been made to JKTech's JK Drop Weight Test and SMC Test® reporting by enhancing the usefulness of the A and b parameters and converting them to a more meaningful specific energy value – the “SCSE”.
New crushing and HPGR data have been recently acquired which have provided the opportunity to enhance the range of applications covered by the SMC Test®, notably size reduction of relatively coarse feeds.
