Efficiency correction factors are applied with the Bond equation. The method is valid both for clinker grinding and for raw materials grinding. This method only gives a rough and initial idea for sizing a cement ball mill. To go ahead, a deeper study is necessary with ball mills suppliers or a specialized engineering office.

In this example, the OWi of the SAG mill was found to be 30% higher than the ball mill, thus suggesting that the SAG mill was less efficient than the ball mill. The apparent inefficiency of SAG mills when using Bond analysis is widely understood to be due to the difference in the slopes of the size distributions.
