HPGR won't be efficient at a 1 mm feed size. Particles that small should go directly to a ball mill. In any classical comminution circuit, the purpose of an HPGR is to make feed for a ball mill. Once you are at the size range to feed a ball mill, just do that.[...]
Since there is a significant amount of finished material in the closed circuit HPGR product, it is logical to take this out as a final product. The semi-finish grinding configuration aims to produce this product. The HPGR circuit product is fed to the classifier which produces a final product and a coarse product which is fed to the ball mill.[...]

HPGR may not be the right machine for less competent ore, especially when the ore has clays. So far it looks like that there are certain ore types that require too much energy to have them ground down in a conventional SAG-Ball Mill circuit. This is the case where HPGR circuits come handy.[...]
P80 between 2.5 and 3.0 mm. Grinding is done in four 12 MW ball mills. Earlier feasibility studies had identified that two (2) 40' SAG mills, each 22 MW, and four (4) ball mills, each 12 MW, as well as three (3) 750 kW pebble crushers, would be required. Four (4) 750 kW secondary crushers are used in the HPGR circuit.[...]
The total power for the HPGR system can be compared to that of a conventional circuit, based on the rod and ball mill work indices and the Third Theory of comminution. The power comparison can also be done against AG/SAG mills. This methodology has only been used to scope the potential energy savings of HPGR at small scales.[...]

High pressure grinding roll circuit, assumes operating in closed circuit with a screen: GMSG, 2016. Ball mill circuit: GMSG, 2016. Discussion. This model requires that the product of the secondary crusher and HPGR be coarser than 750 µm. This is reasonable as no HPGR circuit operates anywhere near that size range (as of early 2016).[...]
In HPGR-ball mill circuit, when the compression of the grinding efficiency of HPGR and ball mill circuits separately, it can be seen that HPGR circuit is very efficient.
