The Amps in a mill are a derivative of the Kg/KWh, which is the ultimate most important indicator for steel balls consumption. When one make the integration of Amps vs. time one obtains the kWh, so those parameters are proportional, but also the kWh gives an indication of the mill efficiency. The balls coating is an interesting concept too.

One of the earliest models was that of Bond (1943), who proposed a specific consumption rate for balls Ω E (kg/kW h) in wet mills of (14) Ω E = 0.16 (A i-0.015) 1.3 and for dry balls (15) Ω E = 0.023 (A i) 0.5 where A i is an abrasion index that depends on the ball material, which could range from A i = 0.016 for dolomite to A i = 0.891 for ...

An analysis by the U.S. Bureau of Mines of iron and steel scrap consumption by domestic steel mills revealed that two key trends have emerged during the last 20 years. First, steelmakers have increased their use of electric arc furnaces, which use close to scrap as a charge material to produce raw steel.
