Ball mills tumble iron or steel balls with the ore. The balls are initially 510 cm diameter but gradually wear away as grinding of the ore proceeds. The feed to ball mills is typically 75 vol. % ore and 25% steel. The ball mill is operated in closed circuit with a particle size measurement device and size control cyclones.
The ball mill is 13 ft 6 in diameter by 18 ft, and was originally intended for a rod mill application. It has a large diameter trunnion and an oversized motor. To bring the ball mill speed up to 75% of critical from 66%, the 24 tooth pinion was replaced with a 27 tooth one. Equipment selection using SPI data was deemed a success.
Optimization of mill performance by using online ball and pulp measurements by B. Clermont* and B. de Haas* Synopsis Ball mills are usually the largest consumers of energy within a mineral concentrator. Comminution is responsible for 50% of the total mineral processing cost. In todays global markets, expanding mining groups are trying
