A new approach to describe comminution processes in general ball mills as a macroscopic canonical ensemble is proposed. Using hamiltonian method, the model is able to take simultaneously into account the internal dynamics from mechanical motions inside the vial and external effects like electromagnetic and gravitational forces. Relevant physical observables …

Comminution is the process of physically breaking run-of-mine ore in order to achieve the liberation of valuable minerals .from gangue. The process itself is very energy intensive and it is estimated that nearly two percent of the United States power consumption is related to comminution (Comminution and Energy Consumption, 1981). With this in
