Ball Size as Initial Charge. Commercial ball sizes 10 – 150 mm; Number, size and mass of each ball size depends on mill load and whether or not the media is being added as the initial charge. For the initial chargin of a mill, Coghill and DeVaney (1937) defined the ball size as a function of the top size of the feed, i.e., d †“V = 0.40
obtained with 100% of a make-up ball size of 50.8 mm. As the. feed size is reduced to 13.4 mm, a 62:38 mix of 50.8 mm and. 25.4 mm balls was found to be the optimum mix. As the feed size. is
grinding media wear rates, throughput, power draw, and product grind size from the circuit. Each of these performance parameters peaks at different filling values. In order to contin-uously optimize mill operation, it is vital to obtain regular measurements of the ball load and pulp position. The current way to measure the charge filling degree
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
rate at each screen size is calculated from a torque-mill test as in the example that follows. Torque mill solids load during test: 11.25 kg (24.8 lb) of ball mill feed sample from plant survey. Sample is reconstituted with water to be the same percent solids as the plant ball mill discharge. Mill speed: 35.2 rpm (65 percent of critical speed)
Sep 01, 2013 Fig. 5 shows the equilibrium ball size distribution from various portions of three make-up ball size classes: 50.8 mm, 35.9 mm and 25.4 mm. The minimum ball size in the charge was taken as 12.7 mm in this example. For a single size of make-up balls, the ball size distributions exhibit a mono-modal size distribution with a mode close to the

Sep 21, 2019 The load of balls in a ball or tube mill is normally such that when the mill is stopped, the balls occupy about one-half the volume of the mill. The void fraction in the mass of balls, when at rest, is typically 0.40. When the mill is rotated, the balls are picked up by the mill wall and carried nearly to the top, where they break contact with
The process plant operates presently at a throughput of 11,500 tpd with gold grade varying between 2.9 and 3.6 g/t. The ore s upplied to the process plant come from two different open pits and it expected to come from a new open pit early 2014. The ore is mid -hard materials so the feed size ore have a bigger impact on the throughput

Jun 19, 2015 A wet grinding ball mill in closed circuit is to be fed 100 TPH of a material with a work index of 15 and a size distribution of 80% passing inch (6350 microns). The required product size distribution is to be 80% passing 100 mesh (149 microns)
We are working in a plant with single stage grinding using three parallel wet three compartment ball mill. Each ball mill operates in a close circuit with Classifier. The fineness of ball mill product is OK so the circulating load is insignificant (44 Kg/h). The overall data of each ball mill circuit are following: Type: Grate discharge & flow control intermediate diaphragms; Throughput: 45 t/h; Mill motor power: 2300
The formula for critical speed is CS = 1/2π √ (g/ (R-r) where g is the gravitational constant, R is the inside diameter of the mill and r is the diameter of one piece of media. This reduced to CS = 265.45/√ (R-r). Dry mills typically operate in the range of 50%-70% of CS and most often between 60%-65% of CS
mill throughput rates from a large open pit can vary con-siderably during the course of a few days, e.g., from 40,000 tonnes per day (tpd) to 80,000 tpd through a single grinding line. Over the last 30 years, DJB Consultants, Inc. has proposed and executed programs which have assisted mining companies in achieving their production goals and
