Abstract Large-scale ultrafine grinding tests were made of coarse kaolin using the Bureau of Mines developed grinding process. A 20-inch diameter attrition grinder was used in continuous open- and closed-circuit systems. The studies included single- and multiple-stage open circuit grinding, and also continuous grinding in closed circuit with a 6-inch diameter centrifuge. Using a modified two-stage closed-circuit system, a ground product containing 88.5 percent minus 2-micron-esd material was produced from coarse clay that contained only 9.0 percent minus 2-micron-esd material. The electrical energy consumed during grinding was 327 kilowatt hours per ton of minus 2-micron-esd material produced.
