The specific rates of breakage of particles in a tumbling ball mill are described by the equation S i = ax α i (Q(z), where Q(z) is the probability function which ranges from 1 to 0 as particle size increases.This equation produces a maximum in S, and the particle size of the maximum is related to ball diameter by x m = k 1 d 2.The variation of a with ball diameter was found to be of the form

Get PriceThe particle size reduction results from the complicated dynamic interaction of the balls with turbulent slurry during the ball mill process, imposing a difficulty in quantitative interpretation of the observed phenomena of: (1) the existence of the optimized ball size at a given rotation speed; and (2) the decreased optimum ball size with increased rotation speed (rpm).

Get PriceIn 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.

Get PriceThe 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.
