SEGREGATED ORE FEED CONTROL (Feed Ratio Optimisation) On milling plants fed by a segregated feed supply, such as a stockpile, the varying size and hardness of the mill feed material affects the residence time in the mill and the power drawn. When the load becomes critically high, the feed needs to be cut in order to grind the mill out.

First, a Jar Mill grindability test requires a 5 lb. (2 kg) sample and produces a direct measured specific energy (net Hp-hr/t) to grind from the design feed size to the required product size. The second test, a Bond Work Index determination, results in a specific energy value (net Hp-hr/t) from an empirical formula.

Converting a ball mill from overflow to grate discharge

Jun 23, 2020 Converting a ball mill from overflow to grate discharge involves installing a grate inside the mill at the discharge end. The grate holds the balls inside the mill but allows the slurry to pass through, and it is then pumped out of the mill by the pulp lifters. ... including available motor power, ore properties, feed and product sizes ...


4. MILL LOAD CONTROL- LATEST CONCEPT FOR CEMENT MILL OPTIMISATION 4.1 Concept M/s Holderbank Engineering, Canada has developed a control strategy for ball mills which can maintain a mill production near optimum, with little operator intervention.

Control Grinding Mill With Sound

ball mill feed control using electric ear - SBM(USA),INC Electric Ear - China Electric Ear Mill Sound Measuring System .. grinding ball hitting the mill lining and material in the mill


The sum of the new ore material feed rate and the recycled ore material feed rate of the ball mill is regulated to be substantially equal to the desired maximum material flow rate capacity of the ball mill. The desired control of the ball mill is determined in relation to the motor power consumed by the spiral classifier as a function of the ...


from larger particles. The finer cyclone feed, overflow and underflow.particles are forwarded to next process stages, while coarse particles are returned to the ball mill for regrinding. PURPOSE OF PROCESS CONTROL The main objectives when controlling the grinding circuit are to maximize the throughput, and to decrease variability of


press ball mill (RPBM) circuit with feed chute truck assembly to reduce the maintenance time as well as to improve the production of cement. The present work is aimed at further understanding of the design studies of feed chute for powdery feed material and truck using FEM and DEM software and to use in the further designs of ball mills. ...

Chapter 18 Feed Milling Processes

Feed manufacturing and the associated quality control programme are keys to successful fish culture. Unless the fisheries biologist understands and specifies the activities of the feed mill and its laboratory, profitable fish farming will be a matter of chance.

5 Ways to Control the Ball Mill Noise JXSC Machine

Oct 08, 2019 Introduction. The ball mill is indispensable grinding equipment in the ore beneficiation process.How to control the ball mill noise? Ball mill is mainly used for grinding materials in the industrial production process. Due to the large volume and heavy tonnage, the noise ( strong vibration and noise ) generated is usually above 95dB(A), which is serious affects the physical and mental
