Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum Grinding
Aug 02, 2013 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.

ore treated was very difficult to mill. In the first two days, the mill experienced numerous power dips (overloads), and on at least seven occasions the feed to the mill had to be completely stopped to grind the mill out. Also, the mill load varied in the range of 125 to 165 tons. These disturbances propagated throughout the milling circuit and ...

For instance a mill of 300tph with a 300% recirculating load would have 1200 tph going through effectively, but if we reduce the recirculating load to 200% at 900 tph it will not change the power calculation. However if we increase the fresh feed by 100 TPH the power calculation goes up as does the size of mill required.

Grinding Circuit  an overview ScienceDirect Topics
Jaw and gyratory crushers are used for initial size reduction to convert big rocks into small stones. This is generally followed by a cone crusher. A combination of rod mill and ball mills are then used if the ore must be ground below 325 mesh (45 μm). Instead of grinding the ore dry, slurry is used as feed for rod or ball mills, to avoid dusting.

Ball Mills  an overview ScienceDirect Topics
8.3.2.2 Ball mills. The ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media. The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 1–1.5 times the shell diameter ( Figure 8.11). The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 20–40% water by weight.

Rod mills, how they function  Mine Engineer.Com
The rods grind the ore by tumbling within the the mill, similar to the grinding balls in a ball mill. To prevent the conditions leading to rod charge tangling, the length to diameter ratio is maintained at 1.4 to 1.6. Rod mills accept feed up to about 50 mm (2 in.) and produce a product in the size range of 3000 to 270 mm (–4 to –35 mesh).

Mineral processing  Wikipedia
Crushing and grinding are the two primary comminution processes. Crushing is normally carried out on "runofmine" ore, while grinding (normally carried out after crushing) may be conducted on dry or slurried material. In comminution, the size reduction of particles is done by three types of forces: compression, impact and attrition.
