Ball mill

A ball mill a type of grinder is a cylindrical device used in grinding or mixing materials like ores chemicals ceramic raw materials and paints Ball mills rotate around a horizontal axis partially filled with the material to be ground plus the grinding medium Different materials are used as media including ceramic balls flint pebbles and stainless steel balls

Mill grinding

Rod mills are less common than ball mills for grinding minerals The rods used in the mill usually a high carbon steel can vary in both the length and the diameter However the smaller the rods the larger is the total surface area and hence the greater the grinding efficiency Autogenous mill

a semi autogenous SAG mill AG SAG mills are often used as the first stage in a two or multiple stage grinding process where the second stage is carried out by the ball mill but they can also be used as a one stage grinder The absence of or reduction in the number of balls means they can be less costly to operate than ball mills

Ball Mill Operation Grinding Circuit Startup amp Shutdown

Ball Mill and Grinding Circuit Preparation for Start UP The following items must be checked before the equipment in the Grinding Circuit is started Check the ore slot feeder for obstruction or hang ups Check the ball mill belt feeder for undue buildup of material Check oil level in ball mill lube oil tanks Also check grease level in the mill ring gear spray lube drum

Grinding Operation

A mill ready to start a grinding operation could be around 150 t in dead weight Thus the initial torque on the mill shaft is very high and an electric drive motor and drive is designed to cope with it Figure 8 11 illustrates a typical change in torque with increasing speed of motor It can be seen that the peak torque of 140 of the running


primary wet autogenous mill WAM and a series of ball mills WAM is customary chosen either based on examination of analogous equipment specifications or from the evidence of very expensive commercial and semicommercial testing that requires large sampling much time and high investment 1 The current practice of exploratory design of ore pre


information show that 40 load by volume of ball mills result in optimum operation or grinding as supported by Erdem 3 Yang amp Li 4 and Bernard et al 5 Increasing mill loads way above this value may result in mill over loads The subsequent result or effects of overcharging is increased power consumption by the ball mills

The operating principle of the ball mill

The operating principle of the ball mill consists of following steps In a continuously operating ball mill feed material fed through the central hole one of the caps into the drum and moves therealong being exposed by grinding media The material grinding occurs during impact falling grinding balls and abrasion the particles between the balls

Cement grinding Vertical roller mills versus ball mills

products enabling a high grinding efficiency and stable operation Figure 3 H However despite a generally good performance of vertical roller mills used for grinding of cement and related products the vertical roller mill is still inferior to the ball mill in terms of sensitivity to variations of mill feed quality fineness and mill feed rate

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Powder Grinding

The Disadvantages of Ball Mill 1 Low working efficiency and high unit electricity consumption 2 Heavy equipment Large sized ball mill weighs several hundred of tons so that the one time investment is high 3 Low rotary speed 4 High consumption of grinding media and lining board 5 Loud noise and strong vibration during its working process

Model Predictive Control for SAG Milling in Minerals

Model Predictive Control for SAG Milling in Minerals Processing Steven J McGarel Rockwell Automation Introduction SAG and ball mills are generally accepted as the largest power consumers in a mining and mineral processing operation and can be 80 of total electrical energy consumed at a specific power consumption of around 20kWh ton
