WhatsApp: +86 18838072829The cyclone overflow would allow a lot of this middling size to escape the grinding circuit. This would decrease the amount of material that the ball mill would have to grind. Which in turn would lower the amount of ground ore returned to the cyclone for reclassification. This again would lower the resulting ball mill load even further.
