The effect of processing parameters on energy

2015-2-10  Abstract A laboratory ball mill consisting of a vertical cylinder, equipped with a rotating shaft witharms, and filled with steel balls as a grinding medium has been used in the experiments.The aim of the study was to examine the effect of agitator shaft speed and amount of grinding media (steel balls) on power requirements and energy consumption of a ball mill.With constant mass of the steel balls (20, 30 and 40 kg), the agitator shaft speed was increased from 10 to 100% of the maximum speed, which corresponds to a speed of 50rpm. The power consumption (W) was recorded upon which milling energy consumption(J/kg) has been calculated. The results were statistically analyzed using ANOVA. Theincrease of the agitator shaft speed, in steps of 10% to the maximum speed of 50 rpm, ledto a statistically significant increase in milling energy consumption. At low agitator shaftspeed (10%), increase in the mass of the steel balls

Ball Mill - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Ball mills tumble iron or steel balls with the ore. The balls are initially 5–10 cm diameter but gradually wear away as grinding of the ore proceeds. The feed to ball mills (dry basis) 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.
