In this chapter an introduction of widely applied energy-efficient grinding technologies in cement grinding and description of the operating principles of the related equipments and comparisons over each other in terms of grinding efficiency, specific energy consumption, production capacity and cement quality are given. A case study performed on a typical energy-efficient Horomill® grinding technology, is explained. In this context, grinding circuit is introduced and explanations related to grinding and classification performance evaluation methodology are given. Finally, performance data related to Horomill® and high-efficiency TSV™ air classifier are presented.
