This test provides ore specific parameters which are used in the JKSimMet Mineral Processing Simulator software to analyse and/or predict AG/SAG mill performance. The same test procedure also provides ore type characterisation for the JKSimMet crusher model.
The JK Drop Weight Tester comprises a steel drop weight which is raised by a winch to a known height. A pneumatic switch releases the drop weight which falls under gravity and impacts the rock particle which is placed on a steel anvil.
The device is enclosed in perspex and incorporates a variety of features to ensure operator safety. By varying the height from which the drop weight is released and the mass of the drop weight, a very wide range of energy inputs can be generated.
