Mar 21, 2007 The mill discharge from these mills consists of slurry, which goes to the ball mills for further grinding, and coarse pebblesrocks, which are crushed and sent back to the mill. To maximize the capacity of these circuits, the general practice is to use grates with pebble ports reaching 100 mm instead of normal grate openings to increase the ...

Mar 09, 2021 The mill speed is one of the vital parameters in ball mills, which is normally specified as a fraction of critical speed. It determines whether the load behavior is predominantly the cascading regime, the cataracting regime or the centrifuging regime.
load behaviour in mills and energies involved in ball-particleliner collisions. Since the beginning of the last century, many studies have been performed in order to improve our understanding of the mill load behaviour and its efficiency.

Dynamic experiments were performed in a continuous open-circuit 40 40 cm ball mill using a pseudo-random binary sequence of the feed rate and measuring the variations of the discharge particle-size distribution. The impulse response is calculated by a cross- correlation technique.
If you need to add water to the feed end of your ball mill to control the density, by all means do so, but make sure you decrease water addition by an equal or greater amount elsewhere in the circuit e.g. SAG feed or cyclone feed or the overload will continue to escalate once the immediate benefits are overtaken by increased circulating load.

Apr 27, 2019 The ball load was 455 stainless steel balls one inch in diameter, having a total weight of 30 kg. The particle size distribution was observed after 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 150, 200 and 300 ball mill revolutions. The energy input was calculated from the net torque corrected for the torque for the empty mill and the number of revolutions.
Jun 27, 2020 The problem with ball mills vs a simulation like ETAP is that the mill initially is a torque load that is dependent on rotation angle until the charge start to tumble. ETAP only simulates the torque vs speed as a curve. Best bet would be to use a torque peak right off zero speed and then drop down to a more constant torque type of load curve.
