The effect of slurry density on the dynamics and grinding behavior of a batch ball mill was studied using quartz as a test material. It was found that slurry density determined the distribution of solid charge in the mill, with migration of particles from the tumbling zone to the mill periphery as solid concentration was progressively increased.

The Time that the ore spends in the grinding mill is called, RETENTION TIME. This is a very important variable, the longer the retention time, the more the ore comes in contact with the rods, the better and finer the grind becomes. To understand this important control it must be remembered that any volume that is added to a circuit must leave the circuit at exactly the same rate. All the

Tangsathitkulchai and Austin (1989) studied extensively the effect of slurry density on wet grinding behavior in a laboratory ball mill. For the process of fine wet grinding, they found the slowing down of particle breakage to occur at any slurry concentrations, even for dilute pulps of low viscosities.

Ball Mill an overview ScienceDirect Topics. The ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media. The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 1–1.5 times the shell diameter (Figure 8.11).The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 20–40% water by weight.

1. Introduction. Wet ball mill is one of the most predominantly used method for the purpose of mixing and grinding of raw materials in laboratories and industry , , .The ball mill process is very complicated process governed by many parameters, such as ball size, ball shape, ball filling, slurry loading (with respect to ball amount), powder loading with respect to the amount of total slurry

The effects of slurry pooling on ball milling have been investigated. • Product fineness was found not to be a function of slurry pool volume. • High ball filling J and slurry filling 1.0 ≤ U < 1.3 led to high production of fines. • From a batch milling perspective, slurry pool is undesirable for effective grinding. •

Effect of Ball Diameter, or Rod Diameter Variation. The first relationship to be considered is the effect of the variation of the ball diameter, or rod diameter, upon the size distribution obtained. In Fig. 6.1 are shown typical size frequency curves obtained by ball milling; these curves being deduced from the data of Coghill and Devaney.

Grinding & Classification Circuits robertd 2018-06-17T09 Low ball ratio is not the same as low mill density. If the slurry density falls below 80% then the slurry will not adhere to the balls and there will be no further abrasion grinding (only impact grinding). it will be SAG mill. If it is more than this, it will be ball mill. SAG
