Crushing is a process which is widely used in mineral processing plants, cement factories, aggregates plants and some other industrial plants. Specific fracture energy of the particles is not the only fundamental property that is important: the particle strength also plays a significant role in determining the overall comminution properties of the material. In the drop weight test, a known mass falls through a given height onto a single particle providing an event that allows characterization of the ore under impact breakage. It is known that there are many difficulties and problems in the drop weight and twin pendulum test methods such as being laborious, requiring long test time and requiring a special apparatus. In this study, breakage behavior of slag in different laboratory crushers was investigated. A new size distribution model equation was developed by a t-family value evaluation approach, and the validity of equation was tested.
