THE OPTIMAL BALL DIAMETER IN A MILL

The ball size in a mill has a significant influence on the mill throughput, power consumption and ground material size (Austin et al., 1976; Fuerstenau et al., 1999; Kotake et. al., 2004). The basic condition, which must be met while grinding the material in a mill is that the ball, while breaking the material grain, causes in it stress which is higher than the grain hardness (Bond, 1962 ...

where d b.max is the maximum size of feed (mm); σ is compression strength (MPa); E is modulus of elasticity (MPa); ρb is density of material of balls (kg/m 3); D is inner diameter of the mill body (m).. Generally, a maximum allowed ball size is situated in the range from D /18 to D/24.. The degree of filling the mill with balls also influences productivity of the mill and milling efficiency.

The basic principle is to measure the height ‘H’ from the charge to the shell and the internal mill diameter ‘Di’. By calculating the ratio ‘H/Di’ and using the graph below (Figure 1), the charge filling degree in volume could ...
