Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum Grinding

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 ...

Mill Steel Charge Volume Calculation

Mill Steel Charge Volume Calculation

We can calculate the steel charge volume of a ball or rod mill and express it as the % of the volume within the liners that is filled with grinding media. While the mill is stopped, the charge volume can be gotten by measuring the diameter inside the liners and the distance from the top of the charge to the top of the mill. The % loading or change volume can then be read off the graph below or ...

SAG/AG SCU

Maintaining an optimum charge in a SAG mill remains one of the fundamentals for efficient mill processing. If the charge level or the ball to charge ratio is incorrect, breaking liners and/or increasing power consumption is inevitable and can only result in degraded mill efficiency.
