    Table of ContentsData on Ball ChargesBall Mill Ball Wear ProjectionRecapitulation of Ball Wear FormulasPractical Application of Theoretical Conclusions In the previous discussion the fact was established that the work done by a ball when it strikes at the end of its parabolic path is proportional to its weight and velocity; then, since the velocity may be considered as constant for all the

  • List Factors Affecting Grinding Ball / Media Wear Rate

    In the mineral processing Industry, there are different grinding environments in which grinding media are used. These include semi-autogenous (SAG) mills, rod mills, conventional ball mills, and tower mills. The different types of grinding media available for these grinding applications include heat treated and as rolled grinding rods, forged steel balls, cast steel balls, cast high chrome

  • AMIT 135: Lesson 7 Ball Mills & Circuits Mining Mill

    Grinding media wears and reduces in size at a rate dependent on the surface hardness, density and composition of the ore. Ball wear is directly proportional to surface area per unit mass and thus inversely proportional to ball diameter. Other factors include: Speed of mill rotation; Mill diameter; Mineral density; Work Index. Bond estimated the amount of wear in terms of kilograms per kWh

  • Grinding Media & Lining Media Liner Wear Rate Modelling

    The cost of replacement of the metal worn from the working surfaces of the balls and liners of a mill often represents a considerable fraction of the cost of operation of the plant and so is of some real economical importance. In spite of this importance, however, the amount of information in available on this subject is amazingly small and, unfortunately, is insufficient to form the basis of

  • Calculation of wear rate Tribology

    From design view the wear displacement h is more convenient than V. With h i =V i /A, the contact pressure p=F/A where A is the area subjected to wear then: h i =k i p s. The sliding distance s can be replaced by s=v.t where v is the mean value for the slide rate and t the running time.

    Figure 8.2 Media motion in the tumbling mill. 8.1 Grinding 8.1.1 Grinding action Industrial grinding machines used in the mineral processing industries are mostly of the tumbling mill type. These mills exist in a variety of types rod, ball, pebble autogenous and semi-autogenous. The grinding action is induced by relative motion between the

  • What is the difference between wear rate and specific wear

    The specific wear rate is simply the wear volume divided by the product of the normal load and the sliding distance. Wear is a complex process that occurs when two surfaces are slid against one

  • Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum

    In Grinding, selecting (calculate) the correct or optimum ball size that allows for the best and optimum/ideal or target grind size to be achieved by your ball mill is an important thing for a Mineral Processing Engineer AKA Metallurgist to do. Often, the ball used in ball mills is oversize “just in case”. Well, this safety factor can cost you much in recovery and/or mill liner wear and

  • Grinding Media 911Metallurgist

    Therefore, for a given ball mill with a constant wear law, the resultant seasoned 76 mm martensitic ball chart should contain more large balls, fewer small : balls, and less surface area than a seasoned charge of 76 mm pearlitic carbon steel balls. The reduced number of small balls, combined with a lower ball charge surface area, might explain the 6% lower grinding efficiency of a 76 mm

  • Ceramic ball wear prediction in tumbling mills as a

    1/12/2014· 1. Introduction. The kinetics of grinding media wear is estimated based on theories put forward shortly before the second half of the Twentieth Century, as is evidenced in the work of Sepúlveda,which uses the theory of linear wear to calculate specific rate constant wear.Other research approaches were found such as that of Albertin and Sinatora,in which ball wear showing linear

  • Grinding Media Selection Guide Union Process®, Inc.

    Costs Media that may be 2–3 times more expensive may last considerably longer, and therefore, be well worth the extra cost over the long run. The type of mill also can affect the selection of grinding media. Ball Mills use very large media while Attritors employ media ranging in size from 1/8” to 1”. Horizontal mills require much
