### Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum Grinding

In Grinding, selecting (calculate) the correct or optimum ball size that allows for the best and optimum/ideal or target grind size to be achieved by your ball mill is an important thing for a Mineral Processing Engineer AKA Metallurgist to do. Often, the ball used in ball mills is oversize “just in case”. Well, this safety factor can cost you much in recovery and/or mill liner wear and tear.

### CALCULATION OF MAXIMUM BALL SIZE FOR BALL MILL GRINDING

Jun 25, 2018 · Mill effective diameter = 2.23 m . 335 is a constant used for dry grinding with steel balls in the mill. Actual size of media is taken is lower than the calculated value. It is around 80 to 90 mm. If you Wants to reduce the maximum ball size, thenreduce the feed size by using pre-grinding operation.

### How Ball Mill Ore Feed Size Affects Tonnage & Capacity

The important of crushing your ore and rock fine and properly is often forgotten. The finer you crush, the higher your ball mill tonnage and capacity will be. The effect of ball mill feed size and how it affects circuit throughput can be hard to estimate. Here we described a method of designing a crushing plant using power drawn and power rate to define reduction ratios in each stage of crushing.

### Optimum choice of the make-up ball sizes for maximum ...

1. Introduction. The ball size is one of the critical factors for determining the mill performance of ball mills. It is well known that larger balls are needed for the effective breakage of large-size particles, whereas smaller balls are more effective for the breakage of fine particles.

### Ball Mill: Operating principles, components, Uses ...

A ball mill also known as pebble mill or tumbling mill is a milling machine that consists of a hallow cylinder containing balls; mounted on a metallic frame such that it can be rotated along its longitudinal axis. The balls which could be of different diameter occupy 30 -50% of the mill volume and its size depends on the feed and mill size.

### Feed Size VS Ball Size - Grinding & Classification ...

A ball diameter that grabs the particle must exceed the particle by 25 times to achieve this semi-self locking taper. One can argue the f50 is a more realistic value since balls wear and the average ball size might be closer to half the maximum. Then the multiple would be closer to 13 times the maximum particle size fed to the ball mill.

### AMIT 135: Lesson 7 Ball Mills & Circuits – Mining Mill ...

Ball Size as Initial Charge. Commercial ball sizes 10 – 150 mm; Number, size and mass of each ball size depends on mill load and whether or not the media is being added as the initial charge. For the initial chargin of a mill, Coghill and DeVaney (1937) defined the ball size as a function of the top size of the feed, i.e., d↓V = 0.40 K√F

### CALCULATION OF MAXIMUM BALL SIZE FOR BALL MILL GRINDING

Jun 15, 2018 · %age of mill in critical speed = 70%. Specific gravity of the feed = 2.2 gm/cm3. Mill effective diameter = 2.23 m. 335 is a constant used for dry grinding with steel balls in the mill. Actual size of media is taken is lower than the calculated value. It is around 80 to 90 mm. If you Wants to reduce the maximum ball size, then reduce the feed ...

### THE OPTIMAL BALL DIAMETER IN A MILL

and with the decreased stone size, the necessary ball size also decreases (Olejnik, 2010; 2011). For each stone size there is an optimal ball size (Trumic et. al., 2007). The bigger ball in relation to the optimal one will have an excess energy, and consequently, the smaller …

### Ball size distribution for the maximum production of a ...

Ball size distribution is commonly used to optimise and control the quality of the mill product. A simulation model combining milling circuit and ball size distribution was used to …

### Ball Mill - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

The ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media. The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 1–1.5 times the shell diameter (Figure 8.11).The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 20–40% water by weight.

### (PDF) Optimum choice of the make-up ball sizes for maximum ...
