ball mill media optimization - metcom tech,• test mills used for media sizing investigations need to be reasonably large (at least 0.4 m in diameter was suggested), depending on size of balls and ore being tested. • ball surface wear rate is approximately constant, but with variations due to hardness, and other factors. consumption is closely related to total ball charge surface area..calculate and select ball mill ball size for optimum grinding,based on his work, this formula can be derived for ball diameter sizing and selection: dm <= 6 (log dk) * d^0.5 where dm = the diameter of the single-sized balls in mm.d = the diameter of the largest chunks of ore in the mill feed in mm..

the bond ball mill grindability test is a locked-cycle laboratory grinding test. it provides the bond ball mill work index which expresses the resistance of a material to ball milling. this index is widely used in the mineral industry for comparing the resistance of different materials to ball milling, for estimating the energy required for grinding, and for ball mill scale-up. the test has existed for more than 40 years.
a series of batch grinding tests were carried out using three loads of single size media, i.e. 30.6 mm, 38.8 mm, and 49.2 mm. then two ball mixtures were successively considered. the equilibrium ball mixture was used to investigate the effect of ball size distribution on the selection function whereas the original
it uses to help determine the grinding media optimal size must be loaded into the ball mill for proper operation ensure. the calculation formula is below: b – the grinding balls diameter, mm; a – the correction factor (for grinding balls a = 20,17; for cilpence a = 18,15); f – the feedstock grain size in 80% of the material, μm;
this 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

50% media charge. assuming 26% void space between spherical balls (non-spherical, irregularly shaped and mixed-size media will increase or decrease the free space) 50% x 26% = 13% free space. add to this another 10%-15% above the ball charge for total of 23% to 25% product loading.
ball mill size as a replacement. grinding media wears and reduces in size at a rate dependent on the surface hardness, density and composition of the ore. ball wear is directly proportional to surface area per unit mass and thus inversely proportional to ball diameter. other factors include: speed of mill rotation; mill diameter; mineral density;

a ball mill is a type of grinder which consists of a cylinder. it is used in grinding (or mixing) materials like ores, chemicals, ceramic raw materials and paints. the cylinder rotates around a horizontal axis. it is partially filled with the grinding medium and the material to be ground.
the mill discharge from ball mill 1 will increase. with the same water addition to sump 1 the particle size of cyclone 1 overflow will increase. this will decrease the ratio, and hence the control loop will add more water to keep the ratio constant. however, the amount of slurry reporting as fresh feed to the second milling circuit will increase.
the starkey test uses a small 300 mm in diameter and 100 mm long laboratory scale mill with a small ball charge of 25 mm balls to grind the test sample of 2 kg. the objective is to establish the grinding time required to grind the ore to 80% passing 1.7 millimeter (10 mesh), the closing screen size.
batch tests were run in the 20 litre stirred ball mill to achieve efficient grinding conditions. the effects of grinding conditions such as pulp density, media size, media density and shaft rotation speed and mill design parameters such as ball load, pin spacing and pin diameter on product size, power consumption and media wear were studied.
