An increase of over 10% in mill throughput was achieved by removing the ball scats from a single -stage SAG mill. These scats are non- spherical ball fragments resulting

Optimization of mill performance by using

The performance of ball mills is very sensitive to the volumetric mill filling which influences grinding media wear rates, throughput, power draw, and product grind size. A pilot plant investigation with an overflow mill discharge has been conducted. For a given throughput, it seems that the pool size has a major influence on the product grind.

It’s not uncommon for a large mine to have independent planners looking after blasting, primary crusher throughput, secondary and ball mill grinding as well as the concentration plant. A single-minded focus by any of these groups to maximize throughput may come at the expense of other units, and ultimately at the expense of overall throughput.

Impact energy of particles in ball mills based on DEM

Ball mill is one of the most commonly used mills for the crushing and grinding of mineral ore. It is generally used to grind material down to the particle size of 20 to 75 μm and can vary in size from a small batch mill up to a mill with outputs of hundreds of tonnes per hour. exploratory data analysis was conducted to explore the

processing, throughput is a term used to express the expected time in hours it will take for tons of rock to grind to the target size in a ball mill. Mill throughput ranges from good throughput at 315 to 300 tons per hour (TPH), to bad throughput from less than 300 TPH to 250 TPH, to really bad throughput, which is anything less than 250 TPH.
