In Grinding, selecting (calculate) the correct or optimum ball size that allows for the best and optimum/ideal or target grind size to be achieved by your ball mill is an important thing for a Mineral Processing Engineer AKA Metallurgist to do Often, the ball used in ball mills is oversize “just in case” Well, this safety factor can cost you much in recovery and/or mill liner wear and tear
Know More A) Total Apparent Volumetric Charge Filling – including balls and excess slurry on top of the ball charge, plus the interstitial voids in between the balls – expressed as a percentage of the net internal mill volume (inside liners) B) Overflow Discharge Mills operating at low ball fillings – slurry may accumulate on top of the ball charge; causing, the Total Charge Filling Level to .
Know MoreThe ball mill is a key piece of equipment for grinding crushed materials, and it is widely used in production lines for powders such as cement, silicates, refractory material, fertilizer, glass ceramics, etc as well as for ore dressing of both ferrous and non-ferrous metals The ball mill can grind various ores and other materials either wet or dry
Know MoreThe ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 1–15 times the shell diameter (Figure 811)The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 20–40% water by weight
Know MoreBall mill shape factors in the period prior to 1927 averaged 11/1 for 29 center discharge mills and 10/1 for 30 peripheral discharge mills With the resumption of new plant construction after the 1930’s depression, the Morenci concentrator continued the 1/1 ratio with its 31 x 31 m (10 x 10 ft) mills The ratio was increased progressively from then on, reaching 16 and 18/1 for the .
