ball mill explained - savree

Ball mills are employed in the comminution stage as grinding machines (size reduction). The purpose of grinders in the mining industry is to reduce the feed material size in order to liberate the minerals from the barren rock. 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). Smaller plants tend to add extra crushing stages in order to operate a single grinding stage only.

The following process description is based upon a ball mill used in the hard rock mining industry for liberating minerals from ore, but the operating principle for ball mills used in other industries is the same.

For both wet and dry ball mills, the ball mill is charged to approximately 33% with balls (range 30-45%). Pulp (crushed ore and water) fills another 15% of the drums volume so that the total volume of the drum is 50% charged. Pulp is usually 75% solid (crushed ore) and 25% water; pulp is also known as slurry.

An electric motor is used to rotate the ball mill. As the ball mill rotates, the balls stick to the inner surface of the drum due to the centrifugal force created within the drum. At a certain angle, the weight of the balls overcomes the centrifugal force holding them against the drum and they begin to tumble back to the centre line of the ball mill (this area is known as the toe). In this manner, the ore is reduced in size by both attrition (ore rubbing against other bits of ore) and impact (balls impacting with the ore).

The ore moves gradually through the mill then exits through the discharge port. The discharge port may be covered by a grate to prevent oversized ore exiting the mill, or it may have no grate (overflow type ball mill).

Ball mills may operate in a closed-circuit, or open-circuit. Closed circuits return a certain amount of the ball mills output back to the ball mill for further size reduction. A typical closed system grinds the ore between two to three times.

Hydro-cyclones installed directly after the ball mill ensure only over-sized material is returned to the ball mill. Other types of classifiers can be used (rake and spiral classifiers), but the hydro-cyclone is now one of the most common.

Critical speed is defined as the point at which the centrifugal force applied to the grinding mill charge is equal to the force of gravity. At critical speed, the grinding mill charge clings to the mill inner surface and does not tumble.

Most ball mills operate at approximately 75% critical speed, as this is determined to be the optimum speed. The true optimum speed depends upon the drum diameter. Larger drum diameters operate at lower than 75% critical speed whilst smaller drum diameters operate at higher than 75% critical speed.

Irrespective of the type of grinding machine employed, grinding is a low efficiency and power intensive process. For this reason, the grinding stage of a mineral processing plant may account for up to 40% of total operating costs.

As a general rule of thumb, the larger the diameter of the ball mill drum, the more efficient the grinding process will be. This rule of thumb stops though once the diameter of the drum reaches approximately 4m (13.1 feet).

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. The plant power and power rates were computed from a Bond calculation as applied to the crushing plant feed and output sizes. A comparison of the low and high energy configurations.

We would design this plant differently today using energy parameters from the pendulum impact tests for calculations. It would only be necessary to use the Bond feed and product size calculation if no pendulum results were available.

This new high energy or power rate crushing brings a different perspective to comminution flow sheet selection.Generally, up until the early 1960s the classical flow sheet for a beneficiation plant was primary crushing followed by two stages of cone crushing in closed or open circuit, making feed for rod mills, followed by ball mills. The rod mill was needed to reduce feed size to the ball mill because crushing plant output was normally coarser than 80% passing 10,000 microns. Such feed causes power inefficiency if fed directly to a ball mill. Even though the rod mill could be a relatively inefficient device for both energy and metal consumption, as was evidenced by Bond, it still made the overall circuit energy consumption more efficient.

Under the right operating conditions, high power rate crushing can bring mill feed size down to near 80% passing 7,000 microns and finer, which can be handledmore efficiently by ball mills. Based on average field observations, the crushers can do this for less than half the energy and between one-tenth and one-twentieth of the metal consumed in a rod mill.

It is, therefore, feasible to look at designing more efficient single stage ball mill circuits following two stages of fine crushing. The result will be an overall reduction in total applied crushing and milling energy for the same size reduction.

To make the most efficient use of both the crushing and grinding comminution energy, both reductions should be treated as dynamic components of the same system. When the feed to the grinding mills gets coarser and/or harder and the production rate drops, the crushing plant feed rate should be readjusted to a lower level to maximize power rate, which will flow on as a benefit helping to increase the mill output.

We will consider an ore with a ball mill work index varying between 16 and 13, feeding into a single stage ball mill operation with one million kilowatts per day consumed power. For the particular mill configuration, a performance graph, Fig. (21), has been constructed according to Bonds methods.

Providing the crushing plant design allows for the machines to be fed continuously and the power on each crushing unit is maximized by adjusting both the feed rate and settings. The power drawn and reduction achieved to the grinding mill feed will be maximized.

The grinding mill output will vary considerably with the Work Index. If the feed size was 13,000 micrometers for the same grind production size, theoretical output from Fig. (21) would change from about 90,000 tons per day on the 13 Work Index down to 65,000 tons per day on the 16 Work Index.

Because of the superior energy efficiency of crushing over milling type processing, when the ore becomes harder in this system significant gains will be made if the feed rate to the crushing plant is reduced to closely match the mill production rate. If we consider the crushing plant runs at an average of 100,000 kilowatt hours per 20-hour day, the available energy for reduction will be:

For the purposes of this example, we will hypothesize that the the crushing index of the hard ore with the increased energy input of 1.54 kw/t reduces the ball millfeed size to 6,500 micrometers. As a result, the mill output will increase with this reduced size to approximately 77,000 tons per day. The gain in production compared to the 13,000 micrometer feed will be:

The theoretical gain will actually be greater because the graph in Fig. (21) is constructed according to the Gates-Gaudin-Schuhmann size distribution used by Bond. We have already shown that this does not apply to crushing processes, which generate increased proportions of fines with higher energy input levels. As a consequence of this, the actual, gain is likely to be closer to 25% and the mill production increased to 65,000 x 1.25 = 81,250 tons per day.

Obviously, this will increase the capacity of the crushing plant and coarsen its reduction, again influencing mill output. Ideally a control system for the whole plant would balance both crushing and milling operations to maximize the benefits described.

Again, we might hypothesize that the crushing and milling output would fluctuate between rates of 78,000 and 90,000 tons per day instead of 65,000 and 90,000 tons per day. The advantages are obvious to all.

ball mill used in minerals processing plant | prominer (shanghai) mining technology co.,ltd

This ball mill is typically designed to grind mineral ores and other materials with different hardness, and it is widely used in different fields, such as ore dressing, building material field, chemical industry, etc. Due to the difference of its slurry discharging method, it is divided to two types: grid type ball mill and overflow type ball mill.

Compared with grid type ball mill, overflow type ball mill can grind materials finer even though its grinding time is usually longer. So it can make finer particle products. Hence the grid type ball mill is mainly used for primary stage of grinding while overflow type ball mill is mainly used for the secondary grinding.

Ball mill Advantages: 1Jack-up device, easy maintenance; 2The hydrostatic and hydrodynamic bearings ensure the smooth operation; 3Low speed transmission is easy for starting and maintenance; 4The oil-mist lubrication device guarantees reliable performance of bearings; 5The air clutch adopts the flexible start-up model./5According to the customer demand, manganese steel liner and wear-resistant rubber liner can be customized with good wear resistance, long service life and easy maintenance.

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. In a closed circuit system, coarse particles are separated from the finer ones and sent back for further grinding.

correlating common breakage modes with impact breakage and ball milling of cement clinker and chromite - sciencedirect

Understanding the mechanisms of the breakage of ore particles is important to predict the particle size distribution in size reduction operations. This paper aims to show the presence of common breakage modes in impact breakage and ball milling of the cement clinker and chromite samples. For that purpose, narrow size fractions of the two samples were broken in a drop-weight tester or ball mill by changing the degree of applied energy. Then the resultant size distributions were evaluated to seek evidence for the common breakage modes. The results showed that increasing the breakage energy will produce a systematic change in the shapes of the size distributions, suggesting a sequential set of breakage modes. The breakage is initially due to tensile stresses at low breakage energies and compressive stresses at high breakage energies. Further studies should be done to assess if these breakage modes occur at size-reduction of different ores.
