what are the differences between dry and wet type ball mill? | fote machinery

The ball mill is a kind of grinding machine, which is the key milling machine used after the material has been crushed, and it also has a mixing effect. This type of grinding machine has a cylindrical body with spherical grinding mediums and materials.

The centrifugal force and friction generated by the rotation of the fuselage bring the material and the grinding medium to a certain height and then fall. Impact and friction grind the material into fine powders.

It is widely used in cement, silicate, new construction material, refractory material, chemical fertilizer, ferrous metal and non-ferrous as well as ceramics, and widely applied to dry or wet grinding for ores and grindable materials. The wet type is often equipped with a classifier, and the dry type is configured with a suction and separation device.

Both of the dry and wet ball mills are composed of feeding port, discharging port, turning part, and transmission parts such as retarder, small transmission gear, motor, electronic control. The wet grinding can be widely used, because most of the minerals can be wet milled.

The ball mill is equipped with a cylindrical rotating device and two bins, which can rotate by gears. The discharge port is straight, and there are also air intake devices, dust exhaust pipes, and dust collectors.

The material from the feeding device is uniformly fed into the first bin of the mill by the hollow shaft spiral. This bin has stepped lining or corrugated lining, which is filled with steel balls of different specifications.

The rotation of the cylinder generates centrifugal force to bring the steel ball to a certain height, and then fall, which will hit and grind the material. After the material is coarse grinding in the first bin, it will enter the second bin through the single-layer partition plate.

This bin is embedded with a flat liner, and the steel balls inside will further grind the material, then the powder is discharged through the discharge grate to complete the grinding. We can't add water or other liquids during the grinding process.

The material needs to be added water or anhydrous ethanol during the grinding process. We must control the grinding concentration, otherwise, it will affect the grinding efficiency. The amount of water depends on the use of the mud, the amount of clay in the formula, and the water absorption of the clay.

It will be gradually pulverized under the action of impact and grinding. The movement of the ore needs to be driven by the water. The bulk material will be cracked under the impact and grinding of the grinding medium, with the crack gradually increasing and deepening, the final material will be separated from the crack to achieve the effect of bulk material being ground.

The grinding ore will be discharge through the discharge port, and then the discharged mineral will be classified into the qualified product in a spiral classifier, with the coarse sand being returned to the ball mill through the combined feeder to continue grinding.

The feeder feeds material continuously and evenly, the ground material will be continuously discharged from the ball mill. The wet ball mill can be divided into three types according to the motion characteristics: a simple swing type wet ball mill, a complex swing type wet ball mill, and a hybrid swing type wet ball mill.

The dry grinding is suitable for materials that can react with water, which may not be used for wet grinding such as cement, marble and other building materials. Some products which require storage and sale in powder form is suitable for dry grinding, and in some other arid areas, because of the lack of water resources, dry grinding can also be used to save water.

Wet grinding is suitable for most materials, such as all kinds of metal ore, non-metallic ore. As long as it is water-repellent and will not affect the quality of the finished product, the material can be used for wet grinding.

Common ore includes copper ore, iron ore, molybdenum ore, phosphate rock, feldspar mine, fluorite ore, etc. The proportion of steel balls, materials, and water in wet grinding is 4:2:1. The detailed proportion can be determined by grinding experiments.

At the same time, the size of the alumina grinding balls is also required. If the ratio is good, then the ball milling efficiency will be greatly improved. Generally, there are large, medium and small balls, and the better ratio between them can also be obtained through experiments.

The dry milling process may be used when the particle size of the powder is not required to be very fine or when the ball milled product is to be stored or sold in powder form. For example, in the production of cement, it is necessary to choose dry grinding instead of wet grinding, otherwise, it will be difficult to meet our needs.

Wet grinding is generally used in mineral processing, because the wet ball mill has the advantages of strong materials adaptability, continuous production, large grinding ratio, easy to adjust the fineness of the milled products, and it is widely used at present.

Since the dry and wet ball mill equipment has its own advantages, we must find out the suitable grinding type that the material is suitable for so that we can ensure quality and efficiency.

ball mills

In all ore dressing and milling Operations, including flotation, cyanidation, gravity concentration, and amalgamation, the Working Principle is to crush and grind, often with rob mill & ball mills, the ore in order to liberate the minerals. In the chemical and process industries, grinding is an important step in preparing raw materials for subsequent treatment.In present day practice, ore is reduced to a size many times finer than can be obtained with crushers. Over a period of many years various fine grinding machines have been developed and used, but the ball mill has become standard due to its simplicity and low operating cost.

A ball millefficiently operated performs a wide variety of services. In small milling plants, where simplicity is most essential, it is not economical to use more than single stage crushing, because the Steel-Head Ball or Rod Mill will take up to 2 feed and grind it to the desired fineness. In larger plants where several stages of coarse and fine crushing are used, it is customary to crush from 1/2 to as fine as 8 mesh.

Many grinding circuits necessitate regrinding of concentrates or middling products to extremely fine sizes to liberate the closely associated minerals from each other. In these cases, the feed to the ball mill may be from 10 to 100 mesh or even finer.

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 classifier as higher efficiency and capacity are obtained. Often a mill using steel rods as the grinding medium is recommended, where the product must have the minimum amount of fines (rods give a more nearly uniform product).

Often a problem requires some study to determine the economic fineness to which a product can or should be ground. In this case the 911Equipment Company offers its complete testing service so that accurate grinding mill size may be determined.

Until recently many operators have believed that one particular type of grinding mill had greater efficiency and resulting capacity than some other type. However, it is now commonly agreed and accepted that the work done by any ballmill depends directly upon the power input; the maximum power input into any ball or rod mill depends upon weight of grinding charge, mill speed, and liner design.

The apparent difference in capacities between grinding mills (listed as being the same size) is due to the fact that there is no uniform method of designating the size of a mill, for example: a 5 x 5 Ball Mill has a working diameter of 5 inside the liners and has 20 per cent more capacity than all other ball mills designated as 5 x 5 where the shell is 5 inside diameter and the working diameter is only 48 with the liners in place.

Ball-Rod Mills, based on 4 liners and capacity varying as 2.6 power of mill diameter, on the 5 size give 20 per cent increased capacity; on the 4 size, 25 per cent; and on the 3 size, 28 per cent. This fact should be carefully kept in mind when determining the capacity of a Steel- Head Ball-Rod Mill, as this unit can carry a greater ball or rod charge and has potentially higher capacity in a given size when the full ball or rod charge is carried.

A mill shorter in length may be used if the grinding problem indicates a definite power input. This allows the alternative of greater capacity at a later date or a considerable saving in first cost with a shorter mill, if reserve capacity is not desired. The capacities of Ball-Rod Mills are considerably higher than many other types because the diameters are measured inside the liners.

The correct grinding mill depends so much upon the particular ore being treated and the product desired, that a mill must have maximum flexibility in length, type of grinding medium, type of discharge, and speed.With the Ball-Rod Mill it is possible to build this unit in exact accordance with your requirements, as illustrated.

To best serve your needs, the Trunnion can be furnished with small (standard), medium, or large diameter opening for each type of discharge. The sketch shows diagrammatic arrangements of the four different types of discharge for each size of trunnion opening, and peripheral discharge is described later.

Ball-Rod Mills of the grate discharge type are made by adding the improved type of grates to a standard Ball-Rod Mill. These grates are bolted to the discharge head in much the same manner as the standard headliners.

The grates are of alloy steel and are cast integral with the lifter bars which are essential to the efficient operation of this type of ball or rod mill. These lifter bars have a similar action to a pump:i. e., in lifting the product so as to discharge quickly through the mill trunnion.

These Discharge Grates also incorporate as an integral part, a liner between the lifters and steel head of the ball mill to prevent wear of the mill head. By combining these parts into a single casting, repairs and maintenance are greatly simplified. The center of the grate discharge end of this mill is open to permit adding of balls or for adding water to the mill through the discharge end.

Instead of being constructed of bars cast into a frame, Grates are cast entire and have cored holes which widen toward the outside of the mill similar to the taper in grizzly bars. The grate type discharge is illustrated.

The peripheral discharge type of Ball-Rod Mill is a modification of the grate type, and is recommended where a free gravity discharge is desired. It is particularly applicable when production of too many fine particles is detrimental and a quick pass through the mill is desired, and for dry grinding.

The drawings show the arrangement of the peripheral discharge. The discharge consists of openings in the shell into which bushings with holes of the desired size are inserted. On the outside of the mill, flanges are used to attach a stationary discharge hopper to prevent pulp splash or too much dust.

The mill may be operated either as a peripheral discharge or a combination or peripheral and trunnion discharge unit, depending on the desired operating conditions. If at any time the peripheral discharge is undesirable, plugs inserted into the bushings will convert the mill to a trunnion discharge type mill.

Unless otherwise specified, a hard iron liner is furnished. This liner is made of the best grade white iron and is most serviceable for the smaller size mills where large balls are not used. Hard iron liners have a much lower first cost.

Electric steel, although more expensive than hard iron, has advantage of minimum breakage and allows final wear to thinner section. Steel liners are recommended when the mills are for export or where the source of liner replacement is at a considerable distance.

Molychrome steel has longer wearing qualities and greater strength than hard iron. Breakage is not so apt to occur during shipment, and any size ball can be charged into a mill equipped with molychrome liners.

Manganese liners for Ball-Rod Mills are the world famous AMSCO Brand, and are the best obtainable. The first cost is the highest, but in most cases the cost per ton of ore ground is the lowest. These liners contain 12 to 14% manganese.

The feed and discharge trunnions are provided with cast iron or white iron throat liners. As these parts are not subjected to impact and must only withstand abrasion, alloys are not commonly used but can be supplied.

Gears for Ball-Rod Mills drives are furnished as standard on the discharge end of the mill where they are out of the way of the classifier return, scoop feeder, or original feed. Due to convertible type construction the mills can be furnished with gears on the feed end. Gear drives are available in two alternative combinations, which are:

All pinions are properly bored, key-seated, and pressed onto the steel countershaft, which is oversize and properly keyseated for the pinion and drive pulleys or sheaves. The countershaft operates on high grade, heavy duty, nickel babbitt bearings.

Any type of drive can be furnished for Ball-Rod Mills in accordance with your requirements. Belt drives are available with pulleys either plain or equipped with friction clutch. Various V- Rope combinations can also be supplied.

The most economical drive to use up to 50 H. P., is a high starting torque motor connected to the pinion shaft by means of a flat or V-Rope drive. For larger size motors the wound rotor (slip ring) is recommended due to its low current requirement in starting up the ball mill.

Should you be operating your own power plant or have D. C. current, please specify so that there will be no confusion as to motor characteristics. If switches are to be supplied, exact voltage to be used should be given.

Even though many ores require fine grinding for maximum recovery, most ores liberate a large percentage of the minerals during the first pass through the grinding unit. Thus, if the free minerals can be immediately removed from the ball mill classifier circuit, there is little chance for overgrinding.

This is actually what has happened wherever Mineral Jigs or Unit Flotation Cells have been installed in the ball mill classifier circuit. With the installation of one or both of these machines between the ball mill and classifier, as high as 70 per cent of the free gold and sulphide minerals can be immediately removed, thus reducing grinding costs and improving over-all recovery. The advantage of this method lies in the fact that heavy and usually valuable minerals, which otherwise would be ground finer because of their faster settling in the classifier and consequent return to the grinding mill, are removed from the circuit as soon as freed. This applies particularly to gold and lead ores.

Ball-Rod Mills have heavy rolled steel plate shells which are arc welded inside and outside to the steel heads or to rolled steel flanges, depending upon the type of mill. The double welding not only gives increased structural strength, but eliminates any possibility of leakage.

Where a single or double flanged shell is used, the faces are accurately machined and drilled to template to insure perfect fit and alignment with the holes in the head. These flanges are machined with male and female joints which take the shearing stresses off the bolts.

The Ball-Rod Mill Heads are oversize in section, heavily ribbed and are cast from electric furnace steel which has a strength of approximately four times that of cast iron. The head and trunnion bearings are designed to support a mill with length double its diameter. This extra strength, besides eliminating the possibility of head breakage or other structural failure (either while in transit or while in service), imparts to Ball-Rod Mills a flexibility heretofore lacking in grinding mills. Also, for instance, if you have a 5 x 5 mill, you can add another 5 shell length and thus get double the original capacity; or any length required up to a maximum of 12 total length.

On Type A mills the steel heads are double welded to the rolled steel shell. On type B and other flanged type mills the heads are machined with male and female joints to match the shell flanges, thus taking the shearing stresses from the heavy machine bolts which connect the shell flanges to the heads.

The manhole cover is protected from wear by heavy liners. An extended lip is provided for loosening the door with a crow-bar, and lifting handles are also provided. The manhole door is furnished with suitable gaskets to prevent leakage.

The mill trunnions are carried on heavy babbitt bearings which provide ample surface to insure low bearing pressure. If at any time the normal length is doubled to obtain increased capacity, these large trunnion bearings will easily support the additional load. Trunnion bearings are of the rigid type, as the perfect alignment of the trunnion surface on Ball-Rod Mills eliminates any need for the more expensive self-aligning type of bearing.

The cap on the upper half of the trunnion bearing is provided with a shroud which extends over the drip flange of the trunnion and effectively prevents the entrance of dirt or grit. The bearing has a large space for wool waste and lubricant and this is easily accessible through a large opening which is covered to prevent dirt from getting into the bearing.Ball and socket bearings can be furnished.

Scoop Feeders for Ball-Rod Mills are made in various radius sizes. Standard scoops are made of cast iron and for the 3 size a 13 or 19 feeder is supplied, for the 4 size a 30 or 36, for the 5 a 36 or 42, and for the 6 a 42 or 48 feeder. Welded steel scoop feeders can, however, be supplied in any radius.

The correct size of feeder depends upon the size of the classifier, and the smallest feeder should be used which will permit gravity flow for closed circuit grinding between classifier and the ball or rod mill. All feeders are built with a removable wearing lip which can be easily replaced and are designed to give minimum scoop wear.

A combination drum and scoop feeder can be supplied if necessary. This feeder is made of heavy steel plate and strongly welded. These drum-scoop feeders are available in the same sizes as the cast iron feeders but can be built in any radius. Scoop liners can be furnished.

The trunnions on Ball-Rod Mills are flanged and carefully machined so that scoops are held in place by large machine bolts and not cap screws or stud bolts. The feed trunnion flange is machined with a shoulder for insuring a proper fit for the feed scoop, and the weight of the scoop is carried on this shoulder so that all strain is removed from the bolts which hold the scoop.

High carbon steel rods are recommended, hot rolled, hot sawed or sheared, to a length of 2 less than actual length of mill taken inside the liners. The initial rod charge is generally a mixture ranging from 1.5 to 3 in diameter. During operation, rod make-up is generally the maximum size. The weights per lineal foot of rods of various diameters are approximately: 1.5 to 6 lbs.; 2-10.7 lbs.; 2.5-16.7 lbs.; and 3-24 lbs.

Forged from the best high carbon manganese steel, they are of the finest quality which can be produced and give long, satisfactory service. Data on ball charges for Ball-Rod Mills are listed in Table 5. Further information regarding grinding balls is included in Table 6.

Rod Mills has a very define and narrow discharge product size range. Feeding a Rod Mill finer rocks will greatly impact its tonnage while not significantly affect its discharge product sizes. The 3.5 diameter rod of a mill, can only grind so fine.

Crushers are well understood by most. Rod and Ball Mills not so much however as their size reduction actions are hidden in the tube (mill). As for Rod Mills, the image above best expresses what is going on inside. As rocks is feed into the mill, they are crushed (pinched) by the weight of its 3.5 x 16 rods at one end while the smaller particles migrate towards the discharge end and get slightly abraded (as in a Ball Mill) on the way there.

A special purpose batch mill designed especially for grinding and mixing involving acids and corrosive materials. No corners mean easy cleaning and choice of rubber or ceramic linings make it corrosion resistant. Shape of mill and ball segregation gives preferential grinding action for grinding and mixing of pigments and catalysts. Made in 2, 3 and 4 diameter grinding drums.

Nowadays grinding mills are almost extensively used for comminution of materials ranging from 5 mm to 40 mm (3/161 5/8) down to varying product sizes. They have vast applications within different branches of industry such as for example the ore dressing, cement, lime, porcelain and chemical industries and can be designed for continuous as well as batch grinding.

Ball mills can be used for coarse grinding as described for the rod mill. They will, however, in that application produce more fines and tramp oversize and will in any case necessitate installation of effective classification.If finer grinding is wanted two or three stage grinding is advisable as for instant primary rod mill with 75100 mm (34) rods, secondary ball mill with 2540 mm(11) balls and possibly tertiary ball mill with 20 mm () balls or cylpebs.To obtain a close size distribution in the fine range the specific surface of the grinding media should be as high as possible. Thus as small balls as possible should be used in each stage.

The principal field of rod mill usage is the preparation of products in the 5 mm0.4 mm (4 mesh to 35 mesh) range. It may sometimes be recommended also for finer grinding. Within these limits a rod mill is usually superior to and more efficient than a ball mill. The basic principle for rod grinding is reduction by line contact between rods extending the full length of the mill, resulting in selective grinding carried out on the largest particle sizes. This results in a minimum production of extreme fines or slimes and more effective grinding work as compared with a ball mill. One stage rod mill grinding is therefore suitable for preparation of feed to gravimetric ore dressing methods, certain flotation processes with slime problems and magnetic cobbing. Rod mills are frequently used as primary mills to produce suitable feed to the second grinding stage. Rod mills have usually a length/diameter ratio of at least 1.4.

Tube mills are in principle to be considered as ball mills, the basic difference being that the length/diameter ratio is greater (35). They are commonly used for surface cleaning or scrubbing action and fine grinding in open circuit.

In some cases it is suitable to use screened fractions of the material as grinding media. Such mills are usually called pebble mills, but the working principle is the same as for ball mills. As the power input is approximately directly proportional to the volume weight of the grinding media, the power input for pebble mills is correspondingly smaller than for a ball mill.

A dry process requires usually dry grinding. If the feed is wet and sticky, it is often necessary to lower the moisture content below 1 %. Grinding in front of wet processes can be done wet or dry. In dry grinding the energy consumption is higher, but the wear of linings and charge is less than for wet grinding, especially when treating highly abrasive and corrosive material. When comparing the economy of wet and dry grinding, the different costs for the entire process must be considered.

An increase in the mill speed will give a directly proportional increase in mill power but there seems to be a square proportional increase in the wear. Rod mills generally operate within the range of 6075 % of critical speed in order to avoid excessive wear and tangled rods. Ball and pebble mills are usually operated at 7085 % of critical speed. For dry grinding the speed is usually somewhat lower.

The mill lining can be made of rubber or different types of steel (manganese or Ni-hard) with liner types according to the customers requirements. For special applications we can also supply porcelain, basalt and other linings.

The mill power is approximately directly proportional to the charge volume within the normal range. When calculating a mill 40 % charge volume is generally used. In pebble and ball mills quite often charge volumes close to 50 % are used. In a pebble mill the pebble consumption ranges from 315 % and the charge has to be controlled automatically to maintain uniform power consumption.

In all cases the net energy consumption per ton (kWh/ton) must be known either from previous experience or laboratory tests before mill size can be determined. The required mill net power P kW ( = ton/hX kWh/ton) is obtained from

Trunnions of S.G. iron or steel castings with machined flange and bearing seat incl. device for dismantling the bearings. For smaller mills the heads and trunnions are sometimes made in grey cast iron.

The mills can be used either for dry or wet, rod or ball grinding. By using a separate attachment the discharge end can be changed so that the mills can be used for peripheral instead of overflow discharge.

ball milling - an overview | sciencedirect topics

Ball milling is often used not only for grinding powders but also for oxides or nanocomposite synthesis and/or structure/phase composition optimization [14,41]. Mechanical activation by ball milling is known to increase the material reactivity and uniformity of spatial distribution of elements [63]. Thus, postsynthesis processing of the materials by ball milling can help with the problem of minor admixture forming during cooling under air after high-temperature sintering due to phase instability.

Ball milling technique, using mechanical alloying and mechanical milling approaches were proposed to the word wide in the 8th decade of the last century for preparing a wide spectrum of powder materials and their alloys. In fact, ball milling process is not new and dates back to more than 150 years. It has been used in size comminutions of ore, mineral dressing, preparing talc powders and many other applications. It might be interesting for us to have a look at the history and development of ball milling and the corresponding products. The photo shows the STEM-BF image of a Cu-based alloy nanoparticle prepared by mechanical alloying (After El-Eskandarany, unpublished work, 2014).

Ball milling, a shear-force dominant process where the particle size goes on reducing by impact and attrition mainly consists of metallic balls (generally Zirconia (ZrO2) or steel balls), acting as grinding media and rotating shell to create centrifugal force. In this process, graphite (precursor) was breakdown by randomly striking with grinding media in the rotating shell to create shear and compression force which helps to overcome the weak Vander Waal's interaction between the graphite layers and results in their splintering. Fig. 4A schematic illustrates ball milling process for graphene preparation. Initially, because of large size of graphite, compressive force dominates and as the graphite gets fragmented, shear force cleaves graphite to produce graphene. However, excessive compression force may damage the crystalline properties of graphene and hence needs to be minimized by controlling the milling parameters e.g. milling duration, milling revolution per minute (rpm), ball-to-graphite/powder ratio (B/P), initial graphite weight, ball diameter. High quality graphene can be achieved under low milling speed; though it will increase the processing time which is highly undesirable for large scale production.

Fig. 4. (A) Schematic illustration of graphene preparation via ball milling. SEM images of bulk graphite (B), GSs/E-H (C) GSs/K (D); (E) and (F) are the respective TEM images; (G) Raman spectra of bulk graphite versus GSs exfoliated via wet milling in E-H and K.

Milling of graphite layers can be instigated in two states: (i) dry ball milling (DBM) and (ii) wet ball milling (WBM). WBM process requires surfactant/solvent such as N,N Dimethylformamide (DMF) [22], N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) [26], deionized (DI) water [27], potassium acetate [28], 2-ethylhexanol (E-H) [29] and kerosene (K) [29] etc. and is comparatively simpler as compared with DBM. Fig. 4BD show the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images of bulk graphite, graphene sheets (GSs) prepared in E-H (GSs/E-H) and K (GSs/K), respectively; the corresponding transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images and the Raman spectra are shown in Fig. 4EG, respectively [29].

Compared to this, DBM requires several milling agents e.g. sodium chloride (NaCl) [30], Melamine (Na2SO4) [31,32] etc., along with the metal balls to reduce the stress induced in graphite microstructures, and hence require additional purification for exfoliant's removal. Na2SO4 can be easily washed away by hot water [19] while ammonia-borane (NH3BH3), another exfoliant used to weaken the Vander Waal's bonding between graphite layers can be using ethanol [33]. Table 1 list few ball milling processes carried out using various milling agent (in case of DBM) and solvents (WBM) under different milling conditions.

Ball milling of graphite with appropriate stabilizers is another mode of exfoliation in liquid phase.21 Graphite is ground under high sheer rates with millimeter-sized metal balls causing exfoliation to graphene (Fig. 2.5), under wet or dry conditions. For instance, this method can be employed to produce nearly 50g of graphene in the absence of any oxidant.22 Graphite (50g) was ground in the ball mill with oxalic acid (20g) in this method for 20 hours, but, the separation of unexfoliated fraction was not discussed.22 Similarly, solvent-free graphite exfoliations were carried out under dry milling conditions using KOH,23 ammonia borane,24 and so on. The list of graphite exfoliations performed using ball milling is given in Table 2.2. However, the metallic impurities from the machinery used for ball milling are a major disadvantage of this method for certain applications.25

Reactive ball-milling (RBM) technique has been considered as a powerful tool for fabrication of metallic nitrides and hydrides via room temperature ball milling. The flowchart shows the mechanism of gas-solid reaction through RBM that was proposed by El-Eskandarany. In his model, the starting metallic powders are subjected to dramatic shear and impact forces that are generated by the ball-milling media. The powders are, therefore, disintegrated into smaller particles, and very clean or fresh oxygen-free active surfaces of the powders are created. The reactive milling atmosphere (nitrogen or hydrogen gases) was gettered and absorbed completely by the first atomically clean surfaces of the metallic ball-milled powders to react in a same manner as a gas-solid reaction owing to the mechanically induced reactive milling.

Ball milling is a grinding method that grinds nanotubes into extremely fine powders. During the ball milling process, the collision between the tiny rigid balls in a concealed container will generate localized high pressure. Usually, ceramic, flint pebbles and stainless steel are used.25 In order to further improve the quality of dispersion and introduce functional groups onto the nanotube surface, selected chemicals can be included in the container during the process. The factors that affect the quality of dispersion include the milling time, rotational speed, size of balls and balls/ nanotube amount ratio. Under certain processing conditions, the particles can be ground to as small as 100nm. This process has been employed to transform carbon nanotubes into smaller nanoparticles, to generate highly curved or closed shell carbon nanostructures from graphite, to enhance the saturation of lithium composition in SWCNTs, to modify the morphologies of cup-stacked carbon nanotubes and to generate different carbon nanoparticles from graphitic carbon for hydrogen storage application.25 Even though ball milling is easy to operate and suitable for powder polymers or monomers, process-induced damage on the nanotubes can occur.

Ball milling is a way to exfoliate graphite using lateral force, as opposed to the Scotch Tape or sonication that mainly use normal force. Ball mills, like the three roll machine, are a common occurrence in industry, for the production of fine particles. During the ball milling process, there are two factors that contribute to the exfoliation. The main factor contributing is the shear force applied by the balls. Using only shear force, one can produce large graphene flakes. The secondary factor is the collisions that occur during milling. Harsh collisions can break these large flakes and can potentially disrupt the crystal structure resulting in a more amorphous mass. So in order to create good-quality, high-area graphene, the collisions have to be minimized.

The ball-milling process is common in grinding machines as well as in reactors where various functional materials can be created by mechanochemical synthesis. A simple milling process reduces both CO2 generation and energy consumption during materials production. Herein a novel mechanochemical approach 1-3) to produce sophisticated carbon nanomaterials is reported. It is demonstrated that unique carbon nanostructures including carbon nanotubes and carbon onions are synthesized by high-speed ball-milling of steel balls. It is considered that the gas-phase reaction takes place around the surface of steel balls under local high temperatures induced by the collision-friction energy in ball-milling process, which results in phase separated unique carbon nanomaterials.

Conventional ball milling is a traditional powder-processing technique, which is mainly used for reducing particle sizes and for the mixing of different materials. The technique is widely used in mineral, pharmaceutical, and ceramic industries, as well as scientific laboratories. The HEBM technique discussed in this chapter is a new technique developed initially for producing new metastable materials, which cannot be produced using thermal equilibrium processes, and thus is very different from conventional ball milling technique. HEBM was first reported by Benjamin [38] in the 1960s. So far, a large range of new materials has been synthesized using HEBM. For example, oxide-dispersion-strengthened alloys are synthesized using a powerful high-energy ball mill (attritor) because conventional ball mills could not provide sufficient grinding energy [38]. Intensive research in the synthesis of new metastable materials by HEBM was stimulated by the pioneering work in the amorphization of the Ni-Nb alloys conducted by Kock et al. in 1983 [39]. Since then, a wide spectrum of metastable materials has been produced, including nanocrystalline [40], nanocomposite [41], nanoporous phases [42], supersaturated solid solutions [43], and amorphous alloys [44]. These new phase transformations induced by HEBM are generally referred as mechanical alloying (MA). At the same time, it was found that at room temperature, HEBM can activate chemical reactions which are normally only possible at high temperatures [45]. This is called reactive milling or mechano-chemistry. Reactive ball milling has produced a large range of nanosized oxides [46], nitrides [47], hydrides [48], and carbide [49] particles.

The major differences between conventional ball milling and the HEBM are listed in the Table 1. The impact energy of HEBM is typically 1000 times higher than the conventional ball milling energy. The dominant events in the conventional ball milling are particle fracturing and size reductions, which correspond to, actually, only the first stage of the HEBM. A longer milling time is therefore generally required for HEBM. In addition to milling energy, the controls of milling atmosphere and temperature are crucial in order to create the desired structural changes or chemical reactions. This table shows that HEBM can cover most work normally performed by conventional ball milling, however, conventional ball milling equipment cannot be used to conduct any HEBM work.

Different types of high-energy ball mills have been developed, including the Spex vibrating mill, planetary ball mill, high-energy rotating mill, and attritors [50]. In the nanotube synthesis, two types of HEBM mills have been used: a vibrating ball mill and a rotating ball mill. The vibrating-frame grinder (Pulverisette O, Fritsch) is shown in Fig. 1a. This mill uses only one large ball (diameter of 50 mm) and the media of the ball and vial can be stainless steel or ceramic tungsten carbide (WC). The milling chamber, as illustrated in Fig. 1b, is sealed with an O-ring so that the atmosphere can be changed via a valve. The pressure is monitored with an attached gauge during milling.

where Mb is the mass of the milling ball, Vmax the maximum velocity of the vial,/the impact frequency, and Mp the mass of powder. The milling intensity is a very important parameter to MA and reactive ball milling. For example, a full amorphization of a crystalline NiZr alloy can only be achieved with a milling intensity above an intensity threshold of 510 ms2 [52]. The amorphization process during ball milling can be seen from the images of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) in Fig. 2a, which were taken from samples milled for different lengths of time. The TEM images show that the size and number of NiZr crystals decrease with increasing milling time, and a full amorphization is achieved after milling for 165 h. The corresponding diffraction patterns in Fig. 2b confirm this gradual amorphization process. However, when milling below the intensity threshold, a mixture of nanocrystalline and amorphous phases is produced. This intensity threshold depends on milling temperature and alloy composition [52].

Figure 2. (a) Dark-field TEM image of Ni10Zr7 alloy milled for 0.5, 23, 73, and 165 h in the vibrating ball mill with a milling intensity of 940 ms2. (b) Corresponding electron diffraction patterns [52].

Fig. 3 shows a rotating steel mill and a schematic representation of milling action inside the milling chamber. The mill has a rotating horizontal cell loaded with several hardened steel balls. As the cell rotates, the balls drop onto the powder that is being ground. An external magnet is placed close to the cell to increase milling energy [53]. Different milling actions and intensities can be realized by adjusting the cell rotation rate and magnet position.

The atmosphere inside the chamber can be controlled, and adequate gas has to be selected for different milling experiments. For example, during the ball milling of pure Zr powder in the atmosphere of ammonia (NH3), a series of chemical reactions occur between Zr and NH3 [54,55]. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns in Fig. 4 show the following reaction sequence as a function of milling time:

The mechanism of a HEBM process is quite complicated. During the HEBM, material particles are repeatedly flattened, fractured, and welded. Every time two steel balls collide or one ball hits the chamber wall, they trap some particles between their surfaces. Such high-energy impacts severely deform the particles and create atomically fresh, new surfaces, as well as a high density of dislocations and other structural defects [44]. A high defect density induced by HEBM can accelerate the diffusion process [56]. Alternatively, the deformation and fracturing of particles causes continuous size reduction and can lead to reduction in diffusion distances. This can at least reduce the reaction temperatures significantly, even if the reactions do not occur at room temperature [57,58]. Since newly created surfaces are most often very reactive and readily oxidize in air, the HEBM has to be conducted in an inert atmosphere. It is now recognized that the HEBM, along with other non-equilibrium techniques such as rapid quenching, irradiation/ion-implantation, plasma processing, and gas deposition, can produce a series of metastable and nanostructured materials, which are usually difficult to prepare using melting or conventional powder metallurgy methods [59,60]. In the next section, detailed structural and morphological changes of graphite during HEBM will be presented.

Ball milling and ultrasonication were used to reduce the particle size and distribution. During ball milling the weight (grams) ratio of balls-to-clay particles was 100:2.5 and the milling operation was run for 24 hours. The effect of different types of balls on particle size reduction and narrowing particle size distribution was studied. The milled particles were dispersed in xylene to disaggregate the clumps. Again, ultrasonication was done on milled samples in xylene. An investigation on the amplitude (80% and 90%), pulsation rate (5 s on and 5 s off, 8 s on and 4 s off) and time (15 min, 1 h and 4 h) of the ultrasonication process was done with respect to particle size distribution and the optimum conditions in our laboratory were determined. A particle size analyzer was used to characterize the nanoparticles based on the principles of laser diffraction and morphological studies.

wet ball mill for metal ores and non-ferrous metals wet milling

Applications: It can deal with metal and non-metal ores, including gold, silver, copper, phosphate, iron, etc. The ore that needs to be separated and the material that will not affect the quality of the final product when encountering water.

Wet ball mill is a kind of equipment which uses grinding medium and a certain amount of liquid (water or anhydrous ethanol) to grind materials. Unlikedry ball mill, wet ball mill adopts the wet grinding method.

The characteristic of wet grinding is that the material needs to be soaked in the liquid for grinding. This method can effectively reduce the chance of the material properties changing due to the temperature increase during the grinding process.

In the process of grinding, due to the different grinding materials, a proper amount of water or anhydrous ethanol will be added to the wet grinding ball mill. Steel ball and liquid participate in the grinding process together. The common ratio of steel ball, material and water in the wet grinding mill is 4:2:1. Depending on the nature of the grinding material, the actual ratio will be adjusted, and the specific ratio needs to be determined through the beneficiation test.

The working principle of the wet ball mill is basically the same as that of the dry ball mill. Both the rotation of the barrel drives the grinding medium and the material in the barrel to move together, and the purpose of grinding the material is finally achieved through the action of dropping and squeezing.

With the continuous feeding of materials, the generated pressure forces the materials that are fed first and have reached the qualified particle size to move to the discharge port of the wet grinding mill. The discharge port of the wet grinding ball mill is of the trumpet type, with a built-in screw device. The water flows out along the screw device, and the qualified materials are taken out of the ball mill at the same time.

Because there is liquid involved in the grinding process, the wet grinding mill will not produce dust during the work process, so there is no need to add other auxiliary equipment. According to the different discharging methods, wet ball mill can be divided into overflow type andgrate type ball mill. Wet grinding ball mill is suitable for the treatment of materials with high moisture content, most of the ore will not produce physical or chemical reaction when encountering water, so it is also suitable for wet grinding.

As a ball mills supplier with 22 years of experience in the grinding industry, we can provide customers with types of ball mill, vertical mill, rod mill and AG/SAG mill for grinding in a variety of industries and materials.

what's the difference between sag mill and ball mill - jxsc machine

A mill is a grinder used to grind and blend solid or hard materials into smaller pieces by means of shear, impact and compression methods. Grinding mill machine is an essential part of many industrial processes, there are mainly five types of mills to cover more than 90% materials size-reduction applications.

Do you the difference between the ball mill, rod mills, SAG mill, tube mill, pebble mill? In the previous article, I made a comparison of ball mill and rod mill. Today, we will learn about the difference between SAG mill vs ball mill.

AG/SAG is short for autogenous mill and semi-autogenous mill, it combines with two functions of crushing and grinding, uses the ground material itself as the grinding media, through the mutual impact and grinding action to gradually reduce the material size. SAG mill is usually used to grind large pieces into small pieces, especially for the pre-processing of grinding circuits, thus also known as primary stage grinding machine. Based on the high throughput and coarse grind, AG mills produce coarse grinds often classify mill discharge with screens and trommel. SAG mills grinding media includes some large and hard rocks, filled rate of 9% 20%. SAG mill grind ores through impact, attrition, abrasion forces. In practice, for a given ore and equal processing conditions, the AG milling has a finer grind than SAG mills.

The working principle of the self-grinding machine is basically the same as the ball mill, the biggest difference is that the sag grinding machine uses the crushed material inside the cylinder as the grinding medium, the material constantly impacts and grinding to gradually pulverize. Sometimes, in order to improve the processing capacity of the mill, a small amount of steel balls be added appropriately, usually occupying 2-3% of the volume of the mill (that is semi-autogenous grinding).

High capacity Ability to grind multiple types of ore in various circuit configurations, reduces the complexity of maintenance and coordination. Compared with the traditional tumbling mill, the autogenous mill reduces the consumption of lining plates and grinding media, thus have a lower operation cost. The self-grinding machine can grind the material to 0.074mm in one time, and its content accounts for 20% ~ 50% of the total amount of the product. Grinding ratio can reach 4000 ~ 5000, more than ten times higher than ball, rod mill.

Ball mills are fine grinders, have horizontal ball mill and vertical ball mill, their cylinders are partially filled with steel balls, manganese balls, or ceramic balls. The material is ground to the required fineness by rotating the cylinder causing friction and impact. The internal machinery of the ball mill grinds the material into powder and continues to rotate if extremely high precision and precision is required.

The ball mill can be applied in the cement production plants, mineral processing plants and where the fine grinding of raw material is required. From the volume, the ball mill divide into industrial ball mill and laboratory use the small ball mill, sample grinding test. In addition, these mills also play an important role in cold welding, alloy production, and thermal power plant power production.

The biggest characteristic of the sag mill is that the crushing ratio is large. The particle size of the materials to be ground is 300 ~ 400mm, sometimes even larger, and the minimum particle size of the materials to be discharged can reach 0.1 mm. The calculation shows that the crushing ratio can reach 3000 ~ 4000, while the ball mills crushing ratio is smaller. The feed size is usually between 20-30mm and the product size is 0-3mm.

Both the autogenous grinding mill and the ball mill feed parts are welded with groove and embedded inner wear-resistant lining plate. As the sag mill does not contain grinding medium, the abrasion and impact on the equipment are relatively small.

The feed of the ball mill contains grinding balls. In order to effectively reduce the direct impact of materials on the ball mill feed bushing and improve the service life of the ball mill feed bushing, the feeding point of the groove in the feeding part of the ball mill must be as close to the side of the mill barrel as possible. And because the ball mill feed grain size is larger, ball mill feeding groove must have a larger slope and height, so that feed smooth.

Since the power of the autogenous tumbling mill is relatively small, it is appropriate to choose dynamic and static pressure bearing. The ball bearing liner is made of lead-based bearing alloy, and the back of the bearing is formed with a waist drum to form a contact centering structure, with the advantages of flexible movement. The bearing housing is lubricated by high pressure during start-up and stop-up, and the oil film is formed by static pressure. The journal is lifted up to prevent dry friction on the sliding surface, and the starting energy moment is reduced. The bearing lining is provided with a snake-shaped cooling water pipe, which can supply cooling water when necessary to reduce the temperature of the bearing bush. The cooling water pipe is made of red copper which has certain corrosion resistance.

Ball mill power is relatively large, the appropriate choice of hydrostatic sliding bearing. The main bearing bush is lined with babbitt alloy bush, each bush has two high-pressure oil chambers, high-pressure oil has been supplied to the oil chamber before and during the operation of the mill, the high-pressure oil enters the oil chamber through the shunting motor, and the static pressure oil film is compensated automatically to ensure the same oil film thickness To provide a continuous static pressure oil film for mill operation, to ensure that the journal and the bearing Bush are completely out of contact, thus greatly reducing the mill start-up load, and can reduce the impact on the mill transmission part, but also can avoid the abrasion of the bearing Bush, the service life of the bearing Bush is prolonged. The pressure indication of the high pressure oil circuit can be used to reflect the load of the mill indirectly. When the mill stops running, the high pressure oil will float the Journal, and the Journal will stop gradually in the bush, so that the Bush will not be abraded. Each main bearing is equipped with two temperature probe, dynamic monitoring of the bearing Bush temperature, when the temperature is greater than the specified temperature value, it can automatically alarm and stop grinding. In order to compensate for the change of the mill length due to temperature, there is a gap between the hollow journal at the feeding end and the bearing Bush width, which allows the journal to move axially on the bearing Bush. The two ends of the main bearing are sealed in an annular way and filled with grease through the lubricating oil pipe to prevent the leakage of the lubricating oil and the entry of dust.

The end cover of the autogenous mill is made of steel plate and welded into one body; the structure is simple, but the rigidity and strength are low; the liner of the autogenous mill is made of high manganese steel.

The end cover and the hollow shaft can be made into an integral or split type according to the actual situation of the project. No matter the integral or split type structure, the end cover and the hollow shaft are all made of Casting After rough machining, the key parts are detected by ultrasonic, and after finishing, the surface is detected by magnetic particle. The surface of the hollow shaft journal is Polished after machining. The end cover and the cylinder body are all connected by high-strength bolts. Strict process measures to control the machining accuracy of the joint surface stop, to ensure reliable connection and the concentricity of the two end journal after final assembly. According to the actual situation of the project, the cylinder can be made as a whole or divided, with a flanged connection and stop positioning. All welds are penetration welds, and all welds are inspected by ultrasonic nondestructive testing After welding, the whole Shell is returned to the furnace for tempering stress relief treatment, and after heat treatment, the shell surface is shot-peened. The lining plate of the ball mill is usually made of alloy material.

The transmission part comprises a gear and a gear, a gear housing, a gear housing and an accessory thereof. The big gear of the transmission part of the self-grinding machine fits on the hollow shaft of the discharge material, which is smaller in size, but the seal of the gear cover is not good, and the ore slurry easily enters the hollow shaft of the discharge material, causing the hollow shaft to wear.

The big gear of the ball mill fits on the mill shell, the size is bigger, the big gear is divided into half structure, the radial and axial run-out of the big gear are controlled within the national standard, the aging treatment is up to the standard, and the stress and deformation after processing are prevented. The big gear seal adopts the radial seal and the reinforced big gear shield. It is welded and manufactured in the workshop. The geometric size is controlled, the deformation is prevented and the sealing effect is ensured. The small gear transmission device adopts the cast iron base, the bearing base and the bearing cap are processed at the same time to reduce the vibration in operation. Large and small gear lubrication: The use of spray lubrication device timing quantitative forced spray lubrication, automatic control, no manual operation. The gear cover is welded by profile steel and high-quality steel plate. In order to enhance the stiffness of the gear cover, the finite element analysis is carried out, and the supporting structure is added in the weak part according to the analysis results.

The self-mill adopts the self-return device to realize the discharge of the mill. The self-returning device is located in the revolving part of the mill, and the material forms a self-circulation in the revolving part of the mill through the self-returning device, discharging the qualified material from the mill, leading the unqualified material back into the revolving part to participate in the grinding operation.

The ball mill adopts a discharge screen similar to the ball mill, and the function of blocking the internal medium of the overflow ball mill is accomplished inside the rotary part of the ball mill. The discharge screen is only responsible for forcing out a small amount of the medium that overflows into the discharge screen through the internal welding reverse spiral, to achieve forced discharge mill.

The slow drive consists of a brake motor, a coupling, a planetary reducer and a claw-type clutch. The device is connected to a pinion shaft and is used for mill maintenance and replacement of liners. In addition, after the mill is shut down for a long time, the slow-speed transmission device before starting the main motor can eliminate the eccentric load of the steel ball, loosen the consolidation of the steel ball and materials, ensure safe start, avoid overloading of the air clutch, and play a protective role. The slow-speed transmission device can realize the point-to-point reverse in the electronic control design. When connecting the main motor drive, the claw-type Clutch automatically disengages, the maintenance personnel should pay attention to the safety.

The slow drive device of the ball mill is provided with a rack and pinion structure, and the operating handle is moved to the side away from the cylinder body The utility model not only reduces the labor intensity but also ensures the safety of the operators.

what is a wet mill?

Wet mill is both a cereal grain production process and the machinery used for wet milling. The wet milling process involves using water to break down grains prior to milling. This allows the individual parts of the grain to separate from one another for easier harvesting. The wet mill process is a common method of harvesting grain for food components, but dry milling is more common for flour or ethanol production.

It is common to use a wet mill on a variety of different feed materials commonly called cereal grains. The basic idea is that the material softens and breaks down in the water. When the feed material is milled, it will take less energy to pulverize it since it is already soft, and it will break down into its constituent pieces more easily.

The first step in a wet mill procedure is steeping the material to turn it into slurry. The food is placed in a tank filled with warm water and allowed to sit for one to two days. While in the water, the food softens as its internal protein bonds begin to break down. This water generally has a small amount of sulfur dioxide mixed in. This prevents the warm and mushy food from growing harmful bacteria. After the slurry leaves the tank, the starch-rich water is purified and condensed for use in animal food or fermentation.

The slurry is very coarsely ground to finish its basic dissolution. This results in a warm and wet mash that is near uniform in consistency. During this stage, any germ that is still attached to the food product is broken apart. In a grain, the germ is the part of the seed that would actually grow into another plant. This portion of the grain is used to create the majority of vegetable oils.

The next step in the wet mill process is the separation of the germ from the rest of the slurry. The slurry is placed into cyclone tanks and spun. The germs lower density allows it to separate from the rest of the material so it may be pulled out of the mixture.

The slurry is now mainly made up of fiber, starch and gluten. The material is ground again, this time very thoroughly. After grinding, the mixture moves over a series of screens, separating the fiber from the rest. This fiber is screened several more times to assure its relative purity, and then it is made into animal feed.

The gluten and starch enter a centrifuge, where the lower density gluten comes apart from the starch. The gluten is turned into several products, both for humans and animals. The starch is converted into products like cornstarch or processed into corn syrup and dextrose.
