2 tonnes of galena is to be reduced to fine powder by passing through a crusher and a grinder in succession, drawing powder from the same drive. Screen analysis of feed, product from crusher and product from grinder indicated surface areas of 5, 115 and 1000 m²/kg respectively. If the power required by the drive to run the crusher driver assembly is 20 KW and efficiency of crusher is 20%, find the efficiency of grinder. Rittinger's number for galena is 100 m²/kj

20kW = ∆A (115/5)

x kW = ∆A (1000/115)


x =


x = 7.56kW

7.56W = 20%

100% = 37.8kW


2 tonnes = 2000kg


Rate of grinder reduction =
