Introduction The overflow type of Ball Mill is designed to overflow and discharge materials from the trunnion on the outlet side.By combining it with a mechanical classifier or wet-processing cyclone, you are able to extensively use this type for grinding in closed circuit or for special applications such as re-grinding in open circuit.
Mill Type Overview. Three types of mill design are common. The Overflow Discharge mill is best suited for fine grinding to 75 106 microns. The Diaphram or Grate Discharge mill keeps coarse particles within the mill for additional grinding and typically used for grinds to 150 250 microns. The Center-Periphery Discharge mill has feed reporting from both ends and the
The mill product can either be finished size ready for processing, or an intermediate size ready for final grinding in a rod mill, ball mill or pebble mill. AG/SAG mills can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or three stages of crushing and screening, a rod mill, and some or all of the work of a ball mill.
In a ball mill circuit, the output can be defined as the production rate of fines of the circuit. As for any output, ball mill circuit output is a function of both its inputs and efficiencies. There are two inputs to a ball mill circuit the ore fed to the circuit and the power delivered by

Ball mills are the most common grinding machine employed in the mining industry. Grinding occurs in a single stage, or multiple stages. Multiple stages may include a rod mill followed by a ball mill (two stage circuit), or a semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill followed by a ball mill (two stage circuit).
2020-4-8 The HPGR-ball mill circuit comprises a reverse-closed secondary crushing circuit prior to a closed HPGR circuit, followed by a reversed-closed ball-mill circuit with cyclones (See Figure 2). The vibrating screen decks were set to an aperture size of 32 and 4 mm for the secondary crushing stage and HPGR screen circuit, respectively.
Ball mill is a key equipment for grinding materials. thus grinding ball mills are widely used in the mining beneficiation process, and it has a wide range of suitable grinding mineral and can works on wet and dry grinding processing. our JXSCs ball mills are perfectly used for ores such as gold, iron, zinc ore, copper, etc.. JXSC Mining produce reliable effective ball mill for long
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 11.5 times the shell diameter ( Figure 8.11). The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 2040% water by weight.
The HPGR-ball mill circuit when grinding to 75 um compared to 160 um used an extra 4.6 kWh/mt, but for the SABC circuit it only used an extra 1.8 kWh/mt. The reported SABC circuit power for the 160 m grind size was based on actual site data. JKSimMet was used to fit a model to site DCS data. Thus, there was considerable scope to reduce the ...
Dec 18, 2007 Abstract Grinding circuit must provide stable particle size distribution and should also operate in a way to maximize mill efficiency. Fuzzy logic based on-line optimization control integrated in an expert system was developed to control product particle size while enhancing mill efficiency in a ball mill grinding circuit.

Controlling the performance of a closed circuit ball mill is a challenging problem due to its complex dynamic characteristics and heavy interactions among the control loops. Traditionally, the grinding circuits are controlled by multi-loop PID controllers which are heavily detuned to avoid multivariable interactions.

Working Principle of Ball mill As the mill rotates, steel balls work to grind the materials. The mill rotates approximately once every couple of seconds. The grinding system uses either open circuit or closed circuit. In an open circuit system, the feed rate of materials is adjusted to achieve the desired fineness of the product.

fractions. The long residence time of the gold within the grinding circuit can cause some of the GRG to become non-gravity recoverable due to smearing on to grinding media, mill liners and gangue minerals. This effect is minor as more than 98% of the GRG entering the ball mill remains gravity recoverable after grinding (LaPlante, 2000).
