Large Ball Mill Scale-Up Factors to be Studied Relative

Ball mills 5.5 m (18 ft) in diameter and larger tend to use energy delivered to the mill less efficiently than smaller diameter mills, particularly when the large mills carry 40% by volume ball charges. This paper will explore factors used in scaling up ball mills, showing where the advantages of one factor can possibly be negated by another factor.

Acerta™ Ball Mill Media Size Testing Metcom

Ball mill grinding efficiency is directly influenced by the size distribution of the grinding balls in the mill. Determining the ball size (or sizes) that should be added to a plant ball mill to obtain optimal performance requires consideration of a number of factors including: circuit feed size distribution, target grind size, and ore breakage characteristics.

Study on the Performance of Ball Mill with Liner

The breaking performance of the hemispherical lifter and the ladder lifter was poor, because the main pattern of motion was grinding rather than impact breakage. Secondly, the effects of the height–width ratio of the rectangular lifter, the height of the lifter and the number of lifters on the working efficiency of the ball mill were studied.
