THE OPTIMAL BALL DIAMETER IN A MILL

THE OPTIMAL BALL DIAMETER IN A MILL

2012-5-15 · As the ball charges and narrow, the size fractions of the samples have different masses. In this research, the grinding efficiency has also been observed through the specific mill throughput per ground product, per unit mass of the ball charge Q s (kg/h/kg). The specific throughput has been calculated at grinding time t = 3 min.

In ball mills, steel balls or hard pebbles to break particle based on impact and attrition. A rotating mill charged with media and ore is lifted against the inside perimeter. Some of the media falls and impacts the ore particles at the bottom of the mill. The rest of the media cascades and, in the process, creates particle breakage by attrition.
