EFFECTS OF GRINDING MEDIA SHAPES ON BALL MILL PERFORMANCE Niyoshaka Nistlaba Stanley Lameck A dissertation submitted to the Faculty of Engineering and The Built Environment University of the Witwatersrand Johannesburg in fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Engineering Johannesburg October 2005 i Declaration I declare that this dissertation

24 11 2010In comparison a lab scale air-jet mill was used at various milling parameters according to a full factorial design where the response factors were particle yield and particle size distribution which was analyzed using laser diffraction and scanning electron microscopy The yield achieved with the micro-ball mill was but was ~80% for the air-jet mill which reduced the size of Pluronic

8-3 Centrifugal force outward Fc mp 2 Dm 2 (8 1) is the angular velocity mp is the mass of any particle (media or charge) in the mill and Dm is the diameter of the mill inside the liners Gravitational force Fg mpg (8 2) The particle will remain against the wall if these two forces are in balance ie

Disadvantages of Pin Mill High wear due to friction The machine is difficult to clean after use Tendency of forming wide particle size distribution due to narrow range of size reduction Low capacity due to its size Mill fouling Heat generation due to friction References George D Saravacos and Athanasios E Kostaropoulos (2002)

Figure 5 High–low wave ball mill liner Materials The selection of the material of construction is a function of the application abrasivity of ore size of mill corrosion environment size of balls mill speed etc liner design and material of construction are integral and cannot be

Ball Mills Steel Ball Mills Lined Ball Mills Particle size reduction of materials in a ball mill with the presence of metallic balls or other media dates back to the late 1800's The basic construction of a ball mill is a cylindrical container with journals at its axis The cylinder is

10 02 2016Mill(300-350 – TPH) and before implementing the project we would like to gather as much information regarding the actual operation of this mill during cement grinding and the quality of the product in terms of the fineness/particle size distribution and how does it compare with the product of a ball mill relative to these parameters

Particle size reduction screening and size analysis In practice powders with narrow range of size distribution can increase the reaction rate and extent or prevent the problems in processing them further Size reduction alone is Hammer ball and rod mills frequently have screens on their discharge to retain large particles and media

8/11/2017Figure 6 Grinding of alumina with a 1 mm grinding ball (1 hour) and then with 0 1 mm balls (3 hours) in water High Energy Ball Mill E max The E max is a new kind of ball mill designed specifically for high energy milling The impressive speed of 2 000 min-1 thus far unrivaled in a ball mill together with the special grinding jar design produces a huge amount of size reduction energy

particle size distribution of the Corrected Ball Mill Feed With two equations and three unknowns there are several solutions to equations [5] and [6] depending on the value attributed to the Fines Factor (Q1) each yielding different Corrected Ball Mill Feed Size Distributions (T'2) This is depicted in Figure 7 Figure 8 presents

In fact in the same application a Vertimill has 50% less footprint than a ball mill Lower operating cost Vertimill is an energy efficient grinding machine They tend to grind more efficiently than for example ball mills with feeds as coarse as 6 mm to products finer than 20 microns This provides up to a 40% higher energy efficiency

particle size distribution was meticulously examined by sieve laser and image analyses To measure the specific surface area of particles Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) and Blaine methods were used It was found that for samples having equal Blaine specific surface areas numbers the amount of fine particles produced in HPGR was higher than that produced in a ball mill A higher surface area

the particle size distributions could be explained With fewer data available the variance in the particle size distributions in the UG2 ore could be explained less accurately (82 4%) but still satisfac-torily In addition smaller particle sizes (less than 300 m) could be modelled more accurately in

24 11 2010Cryo-Micro-Ball Mill The main parameter influencing particle size of Pluronic F-68 powder using cryo-micro-ball method was milling duration (Table 3) As milling time increased from 5 to 15 min there was a significant decrease in particle size using milling masses of 25 and 100 mg loaded into the micro-ball mill (p 0 05)

The law of ball size distribution in the horizontal planetary ball mill is studied by the discrete element method The results show that the maximum impact energy could be acquired when filling rate is 24% moreover the biggest mean contact force and the highest energy utilization ratio of balls could be acquired when the speed ratio is 1 5
