Factors Affecting Ball Mill Grinding Efficiency

The following are factors that have been investigated and applied in conventional ball milling in order to maximize grinding efficiency: a) Mill Geometry and Speed – Bond (1954) observed grinding efficiency to be a function of ball mill diameter, and established empirical relationships for recommended media size and mill speed that take this factor into account.

Dry grinding limits the galvanic interactions present during wet grinding, due to the absence of water. Studies have been conducted and it has been shown that dry grinding yielded significantly less media wear relative to wet grinding owing to the absence of corrosive abrasion in the form of electrochemical oxidation of media during grinding.

Effect of Milling Environment on the Breakage Rates in Dry ...

In ball milling the rates of breakage vary primarily with the size distribution of powder in the mill. Using an approximate solution to the batch-grinding equation, the acceleration and deceleration of breakage rates of all individual size classes are determined when the grinding environment is varied. Experimental results with limestone and copper ore show time-dependent breakage rates under ...

Ball Mill Loading - Dry Milling - Paul O. Abbe

Charging a Dry Mill – The general operation of a grinding mill is to have the product impacted between the balls as they tumble. If there are insufficient solids in the mill then the media will strike itself and generate excessive media wear. If too much product then the solid may buffer the impact too much.

Figure 3 depicts the effects of media size on grinding times. From this plot, it is shown that a target fineness of 80% < 2 microns is normally achieved in 315 minutes of recirculation milling with 1.0 to 1.4 mm grinding media. By reducing the media diameter to 0.6 to 0.8 mm after 90 minutes, the target grind is achieved in only 150 minutes.
