Hardness of Water

Water systems using groundwater as a source are concerned with water hardness since as water moves through soil and rock it dissolves small amounts of naturally-occurring minerals and carries them into the groundwater supplyWater is a great solvent for calcium and magnesium so if the minerals are present in the soil around a water-supply well hard water may be delivered to hom...

Bond Work Index

The Bond work index is not solely a material constant but is influenced by the grinding conditions For example the finer the grind size desired the higher is the kWh/t required to grind to that size Magdalinovic 38 measured the Bond work index of three ore types using different test screen siz He produced a correlation between the mass of test screen undersize per revolution G and...
