Common Basic Formulas for Mineral Processing

20/03/2016  A mechanical classifier often receives its feed from a ball mill and produces (1) finished material which overflows to the next operation and (2) sand which returns to the mill for further size-reduction. The term “circulating load” is defined as the tonnage of sand that returns to the ball mill, and the “circulating load ratio” is the ratio of circulating load to the tonnage of original feed to the ball mill.

Grinding Circuit - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The high unit capacity SAG mill/ball mill circuit is dominant today and has contributed toward substantial savings in capital and operating costs, which has in turn made many low-grade, high-tonnage operations such as copper and gold ores feasible. Future circuits may see increasing use of high pressure grinding rolls Rosas et al., 2012). Autogenous grinding or semi-autogenous grinding mills ...

There are six parallel conventional milling circuits at Palabora Mining Company. Each milling circuit consists of a rod mill followed by a ball mill in series. Crusher product (-9 mm) is fed to the rod mill, and the water is fed in ratio to the ore feed mass. The rod mill discharge is pumped, without any further water addition, to the first ball mill. The ball mill discharges to a sump where ...

Ball mill - Wikipedia

A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind or blend materials for use in mineral dressing processes, paints, pyrotechnics, ceramics, and selective laser sintering. It works on the principle of impact and attrition: size reduction is done by impact as the balls drop from near the top of the shell. A ball mill consists of a hollow cylindrical shell rotating about its axis. The axis of the ...
