This paper presents and discusses the results of a detailed study, which is based on industrial circuit testing on the subject of energy consumption in the comminution of cement clinker. The study was performed in Turkish cement plants where high-pressure roller press, tube mills and high efficiency separators are in operation Eight different grinding circuits configurations were examined in the plants and the comparison was made in terms of relative energy efficiency, production rate and product quality.
