The main data are provided in terms of toe and shoulder angles. (Figure 6.) The pulp density is an important parameter which influences the grinding efficiency. In iron ore, for instance, a variation of 2 to 3% solid content in the slurry could lead to a
Chat NowThe effect of slurry density on the dynamics and grinding behavior of a batch ball mill was studied using quartz as a test material. It was found that slurry density determined the distribution of solid charge in the mill, with migration of particles from the tumbling zone to the mill periphery as solid concentration was progressively increased. The ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media. The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 1–1.5 times the shell diameter (Figure 8.11).The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 20–40% water by weight.
Chat NowThe effects of slurry pooling on ball milling have been investigated. • Product fineness was found not to be a function of slurry pool volume. • High ball filling J and slurry filling 1.0 ≤ U < 1.3 led to high production of fines. • From a batch milling perspective, slurry pool is undesirable for effective grinding. • The slurry density or pulp percentage of solids and the size of the grinding media are often considered for ball mill optimization. Laboratory grinding tests were conducted to identify possible ...

Chat NowSlurry density effects on ball milling in a laboratory. The effect of slurry density on the dynamics and grinding behavior of a batch ball mill was studied using quartz as a test material. It was found that slurry density determined the distribution of solid charge in the mill, ... Low ball ratio is not the same as low mill density. If the slurry density falls below 80% then the slurry will not adhere to the balls and there will be no further abrasion grinding (only impact grinding).
Chat NowAs you increase the volume of the through put, the time that the ore has to react to the grinding media is lessened. As you add ore to the mill you are also adding WATER and changing density which affects the slurry rheology and workings of the grinding action inside that mill. This water is one- of the main controls that you have over your grind. The volume of slurry in a rotary mill has a bearing on the presence of a pool of slurry and therefore on milling efficiency. Load behaviour was investigated at different volumes of slurry. The insight gained was then used to evaluate the implications of slurry pooling on milling.
Chat NowAlso, the uprising velocity in the mill can be controlled by a recycle pump to affect the product size distribution, prevent over grinding, and reduce the circulating load from the cyclone. Final product size is a factor of applied grinding power, flow rate, and slurry density. Under given load and particle size requirement, capacity is a function of mill length and diameter: Q = kLD 2+N. N is related to mill diameter which decreases with larger diameters k a constant equal to π /4.

The slurry density or pulp percentage of solids and the size of the grinding media are often considered for ball mill optimization. Laboratory grinding tests were conducted to identify possible interactions between the two variables and the fineness of the ground product.

Chat NowAgain, based on direct visual observations of operating industrial scale mills, the shape of this lifted mill content volume, e.g. Volume 2 and Volume 3 of Figure 1, appears to vary along mill length and is somewhat changeable with changing slurry density, mill rotational speed, solids feed rate, etc. = the pulp density (solids and water) in lbs/ft 3 X = solids concentration in % by weight; Volumetric flow rate can be measured by flow meters, P-Q curve relationships for pumps or directly measured. Pulp density can be measured using a Marcy Density of nuclear density gauge.

The amount of dispersant, slurry density and the particle size were selected as the parameters. The viscosity of dolomite-water slurry was measured by rotational viscometers. It was found that by adding enough dispersant, the effect...
