Common types of grinding mills include Ball Mills and Rod Mills. This includes all rotating mills with heavy grinding media loads. This article focuses on ball and rod mills excluding SAG and AG mills. Although their concepts are very similar, they are not discussed here. Photographs of a glass ended laboratory ball mill show action of ball mass within the mill.
AMIT 135: Lesson 7 Ball Mills Circuits Mining Mill
Ball Mill Design. A survey of Australian processing plants revealed a maximum ball mill diameter of 5.24 meters and length of 8.84 meters (Morrell, 1996). Autogenous mills range up to 12 meters in diameter. The lengthtodiameter ratios in the previous table are for normal applications. For primary grinding, the ratio could vary between 1:1and
Batch Ball Mill Grinding Chert, which is very hard, and dolomite, which is moderately hard, were selected for use in a study of the effect of different speeds and ore charges in batch tests. Mill, ball load, and pulp consistency always were the same.
Grinding in Ball Mills: Modeling and Process Control
Keywords: Ball mills, grinding circuit, process control. I. Introduction Grinding in ball mills is an important technological process applied to reduce the size of particles which may have different nature and a wide diversity of physical, mechanical and chemical characteristics. Typical examples are the various ores, minerals, limestone, etc.
