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 the grinding mill

Get PriceBall mills tumble iron or steel balls with the ore. The balls are initially 5–10 cm diameter but gradually wear away as grinding of the ore proceeds. The feed to ball mills (dry basis) is typically 75 vol.-% ore and 25% steel. The ball mill is operated in closed circuit with a particle-size measurement device and size-control cyclones

Get PriceThe ball mill is a key piece of equipment for grinding crushed materials, and it is widely used in production lines for powders such as cement, silicates, refractory material, fertilizer, glass ceramics, etc., as well as for ore dressing of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. The ball mill can grind ores and other materials, wet or dry
Get PriceClosed Circuit Ball Mill System. Clinker, Gypsum and other desired additives are fed to the ball mill in specific proportions based on the quality requirement. Feed material is ground in the ball mill, discharged and fed to a classifier with the help of a bucket elevator for classification of the ground cement into two streams – coarse and fines
Get PriceOne of these, Circuit Classification System Efficiency (CSE), is the fraction of coarse material inside the ball mill upon which grinding energy is deliberately expended, versus the remaining
Get PriceThe batch ball mill is a kind of ball milling machine which discharges the material in one time according to the nature of the material. Different from continuous ball mill, batch type ball mill grinds powder by times and adopts intermittent operation. The batch mill is mainly used for the mixing and grinding of materials, with uniform product fineness and saving power

Get PriceFeb 13, 2017 Where the finished product does not have to be uniform, a ball mill may be operated in open circuit, but where the finished product must be uniform it is essential that the grinding mill be used in closed circuit with a screen, if a coarse product is desired, and with a classifier if a fine product is required. In most cases it is desirable to operate the grinding mill in closed circuit with a screen or
Get PriceFeb 01, 2016 The grinding circuit operator must ensure that the ball mill runs properly loaded and gives the correct ore grind. A major practical indication of mill loading is the sound made by the mill. A properly loaded mill will have a deep rhythmic roar, while an under loaded mill will have a metallic rattling type noise and an overloaded mill will be quite silent
Get Pricecircuit P80 target size) material in the ball mill. It can be measured and then increased through pump and cyclone adjustments. By so transferring the application of ball mill power from fine (minus P80 product size) to coarse material, circuit efficiency is increased and overgrinding is decreased. The other factor that determines overall
Get PriceGenerally, filling the mill by balls must not exceed 30%–35% of its volume. The productivity of ball mills depends on the drum diameter and the relation of ∫ drum diameter and length. The optimum ratio between length L and diameter D, L: D, is usually accepted in the range 1.56–1.64
