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.

Get PriceSAG is an acronym for semi-autogenous grinding. SAG mills are autogenous mills that also use grinding balls like a ball mill. A SAG mill is usually a primary or first stage grinder. SAG mills use a ball charge of 8 to 21%. The largest SAG mill is 42' (12.8m) in diameter, powered by a

Get PriceWe can calculate the steel charge volume of a ball or rod mill and express it as the % of the volume within the liners that is filled with grinding media. While the mill is stopped, the charge volume can be gotten by measuring the diameter inside the liners and the distance from the top of the charge to the top of the mill. The % loading or change volume can then be read off the graph below or

The longer a grinding bead lasts the cheaper it may be in the long run because of the costs associated with downtime, new beads, disposal and labor. c. Mill

Get PriceThis test also shows that by feeding the mill with a too dilute pulp, the grinding zones between the media are not saturated, leading to high media wear rate. A variation in total ball angle can be detected and linked to grinding efficiency and charge expansion. This could help the operator to make the right decision and keep the mill

Get PriceA 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.

Get Price2008-07-01· Grinding, or de-agglomeration, is affected by impact, pressure and shear forces between the grinding media and the mill parts. In each situation there is a critical energy required to break target particles. This ‘Stress Energy’ (SE) is directly proportional to the bead size: SE ∞ p .

Get Priceamperage is not an accurate method. As the grinding media wears fine enough to be carried out by the uprising velocity in the mill, the total media charge will diminish and the power draw will decrease. Consistent power draw is required in order to achieve the desired product size, so media should be added either manually or
