Thankfully, the performance of the vertical mill was still better than the ball mills, which reinforces the use of this technology.

More### Factors Affecting Ball Mill Grinding Efficiency

The following are factors that have been investigated and applied in conventional ball milling in order to maximize grinding efficiency: a) Mill Geometry and Speed Bond (1954) observed grinding efficiency to be a function of ball mill diameter, and established empirical relationships for recommended media size and mill speed that take this factor into account. As well, mills with different

Optimization of mill performance by using online ball and pulp measurements Soon after a stop, a mill is a dangerous place to enter for the personnel tasked with taking measurements or samples. Crash stops are difficult to handle. The mill and all feed streams should be stopped simultaneously but, often, they are stopped around about the same time.

A Ball Mill Critical Speed (actually ball, rod, AG or SAG) is the speed at which the centrifugal forces equal gravitational forces at the mill shell’s inside surface and no balls will fall from its position onto the shell. The imagery below helps explain what goes on inside a mill as speed varies. Use our online formula The mill speed is typically defined as the percent of the Theoretical
