Ball Mill Power Calculation Example #1. A wet grinding ball mill in closed circuit is to be fed 100 TPH of a material with a work index of 15 and a size distribution of 80% passing ¼ inch (6350 microns). The required product size distribution is to be 80% passing 100 mesh (149 microns).
A Ball Mill Critical Speed (actually ball, rod, AG or SAG) is the speed at which the centrifugal forces equal gravitational forces at the mill shell’s inside surface and no balls will fall from its position onto the shell. The imagery below helps explain what goes on inside a
The following equation is used to determine the power that wet grinding overflow ball mills should draw. For mills larger than 3.3 meters (10 feet) diameter inside liners, the top size of the balls used affects the power drawn by the mill. This is called the ball size factor S. Rod and Ball Mills by C.A. Rowland and D.M. Kjos @ Allis-Chalmers
To accelerate the math or calculation you can use the shortened formula: D m <= Km * d^0.5where Km =6 (log dk) is taken from Figure 5 according to the fineness of the finished product dk. These formulas are applicable to the case of feeding a mill with
How to Size a Ball Mill -Design Calculator & Formula. A) Total Apparent Volumetric Charge Filling including balls and excess slurry on top of the ball charge, plus the interstitial voids in between the balls expressed as a percentage of the net internal mill volume (inside liners).
The ball mill grinding efficiency was poor and could be indicated by the fraction < 125 µm of only 5-9 % or x. P, 80: >400 µm in the mill discharge. This was deemed due to poor hydrocyclone performance which was characterized by higher feed solids content, coarser overflow x. P, 80: >200 µm as well as cut sizes, x. T : > 200 µm.
For wet ball mills, (1 Î¦) The bed porosity is typically in the range of 35% to 40%. In practice, the mill shaft power for wet overflow mills calculated using the above expression appeared to overestimate the actual power when: Maximum ball size, d max < 45.7; Mill inside diameter > 2400mm; Bond Wet Overflow Mill Corrections. Corrections to counter the over estimation included in a
08.03.2013· CALCULATION OF BALL MILL GRINDING EFFICIENCY. DEAR EXPERTS. PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO CALCULATE THE GRINDING EFFICIENCY OF A CLOSED CKT & OPEN CKT BALL MILL. IN LITERATURES IT IS WRITTEN THAT THE GRINDING EFFICIENCY OF BALL MILL IS VERY LESS [LESS THAN 10%]. PLEASE EXPALIN IN A N EXCEL SHEET TO CALCUALTE THE
For an improved understanding, the wear rate constant is directly related to the grinding media consumption rate expressed in grams of steel per kWh drawn by the mill, using the simple expression: where dr represents the diameter of the new make-up balls periodically charged to the mill.
However, in this situation the ball mill has to supply this energy and it has a different (higher) work index than the crusher (ie the ball mill is less energy efficient than a crusher and has to input more energy to do the same amount of size reduction). Hence from equation 7, to crush to the ball mill
Given the ball distribution (Table 3.2), 38.8 mm breakage parameters (Table 4.1) and =1 and =2 (rounded off values), S. ifor the OEM-BSD was calculated. Figure 5.4Comparison of the predicted and measured selection on OEM-BSD.
µm. Note that—in order for no correction factor for ball mill product fineness to apply—the ball mill circuit P80 should be no less than approximately 70 µm (Bond, 1962). This Bond Efficiency determination should not be applied to cir-cuits with a P80 finer than approximately 70 µm without making qualifications. 3. Calculate the circuit Wi Efficiency Ratio (equation 4): WiSTD
The mill performance is evaluated and recommendations are formulated based on the past history of the mill operations, inspections, process measurements, feed/product characteristics and grinding performance, in order to improve mill output and reduction in power consumptions in the ball mill system. DIAGNOSTIC STUDY History of mill operations
A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind or blend materials for use in mineral dressing processes, paints, pyrotechnics, ceramics, and selective laser sintering. It works on the principle of impact and attrition: size reduction is done by impact as the balls drop from near the top of the shell. A ball mill consists of a hollow cylindrical shell rotating about its axis. The axis of the shell may be either horizontal or at a small angle to the horizontal. It is partially filled with balls

The no-load power accounts for all frictional and mechanical losses in the drive system of the mill and can be calculated from No load power 1.68 D 2.05 [3 c(0.667 Ld L)] 0.82 kW (8.15) Ld is the mean length of the conical ends and is calculated as half the difference between the center-line length of the mill and the length of the cylindrical section.
