### Ball Mills - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The degree of filling the mill with balls also influences productivity of the mill and milling efficiency. With excessive filling, the rising balls collide with falling ones. Generally, filling the mill by balls must not exceed 30–35% of its volume. Productivity of ball mills depends on drum diameter and the relation of drum diameter and length. Optimum ratio between length L and diameter D ...

Ball Mills are generally used to grind material 1/4 inch and finer, down to the particle size of 20 to 75 microns. To achieve a reasonable efficiency with ball mills, they must be operated in a closed system, with oversize material continuously being recirculated back into the mill to be reduced. Various classifiers, such as screens, spiral ...

Further tests were done, using samples from a platinum mine, namely the feed to a secondary mill (ball-mill) and rounded pebbles from a primary AG mill. Grinding capacity was maintained over the range 0-30% pebbles, by volume, with savings in energy and ball consumption increasing progressively. At 25% pebbles, the saving in energy was 18% and the pebble consumption was about 7% of total production.

Following extensive feasibility studies, a high pressure grinding roll (HPGR)-ball milling circuit was selected based on the reduced power requirements and thus reduced operating expenses. The HPGR-ball mill circuit was estimated to require 75% of the energy of a standard semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill circuit. Even with an anticipated greater capital cost, the HPGR-ball mill circuit was found
