The most dramatic advantage of rationed charging of martensitic alloy steel balls as compared to use of 76 mm pearlitic carbon steel balls has been a 16.6% to 25.0% reduction in grinding ball consumption . Further, the rationed charge test showed a small improvement in throughput at a given fineness of grind or, conversely, if tonnage ...
The ball charge is determined by the operator targeting the balance between grind and throughput, the higher the ball charge the more aggressive the milling becomes. With softer oxide ores lower ball charges are usual however the harder sulphides does need more media energies to meet the P80 target and an acceptable throughput.
6. Open the safety guard and place hopper on the Clamping unit of mill using Insmart Spanner. 7. Feed the grinding media according to the specifications of the machine Ref Prerequisite. 8. Feed the Raw material thru the hopper with respect to Ball to Charge Ratio 9.
Charging a Dry Mill The general operation of a grinding mill is to have the product impacted between the balls as they tumble. If there are insufficient solids in the mill then the media will strike itself and generate excessive media wear. If too much product then the solid may buffer the impact too much.
