Variables in Ball Mill Operation  Paul O. Abbe®
Ball mill operation is often regarded as something of a mystery for several reasons. Ball milling is not an art it's just physics. The first problem will ball mills is that we cannot see what is occurring in the mill. The other problem is that many of the independent variables are nonlinear or have paradoxical effects on the end results.

Optimizing your SAG mill operation
· The mill discharge from these mills consists of slurry, which goes to the ball mills for further grinding, and coarse pebbles/rocks, which are crushed and sent back to the mill. To maximize the capacity of these circuits, the general practice is to use grates with pebble ports (reaching 100 mm) instead of normal grate openings to increase the pebble removal.

A specific energybased ball mill model: From batch ...
Five sets of the industrial ball milling survey data were used to validate the ball mill model. The data were acquired from four full scale ball mills covering primary and secondary grinding duties in a gold concentrator and a PGM concentrator. In all cases, the model fits the ball mill operational data well. Features of the specific energy ...

Grinding
The ball mill rolls grinding media together with the ore, as the ore grinds, these balls initially 510 cm in diameter but gradually wear out. Grinding is always carried out under wet conditions, with about 70% solid mixture in water. This procedure maximizes ore production and minimizes power consumption.

Ball Mill Operation. Ball mills ride on steel tires or supported on both ends by trunnions. Girth gears bolted to the shell drive the mill through a pinion shaft from a prime mover drive. The prime movers are usually synchronized motors. During rotation, a portion of the charge is lifted along the inside perimeter.
