The aim of this paper is to present a method to analyze the dynamic of the charge in a ball mill. The method is based on the mill torque estimated from angular position and motor electrical signals. The estimated torque signal obtained from a Luenberguer velocity observer is bandpass filtered to isolate the mill-filling-related component. The root-mean-square value of this …

The ball charge and ore charge volume is a variable, subject to what is the target for that operation. The type of mill also is a factor as if it is an overflow mill (subject to the diameter of the discharge port) is usually up to about 40-45%. If it is a grate discharge you will have more flexibility of the total charge.

The starting point for ball mill media and solids charging generally starts as follows: 50% media charge. Assuming 26% void space between spherical balls (non-spherical, irregularly shaped and mixed-size media will increase or decrease the free space) 50% x 26% = 13% free space. Add to this another 10%-15% above the ball charge for total of 23% ...

This paper focuses on the use of a numerical tool known as the discrete element method (DEM) to study the motion of ball charge in ball mills. DEM is employed to simulate the motion of individual balls. While doing so, the effect of liner design on the grinding performance of the mill is studied. Two important factors, such as the configuration of the liner and the …

In semi-autogenous grinding (SAG), the grinding mill inventory, (i.e. volume of total charge, volume of ball charge, etc.) is important in determining the optimum operating condition for maximum production (tph), minimum specific energy (kwh/t) or lowest cost ($/t). A two-dimensional graphical method is presented for determining the actual ball charge within the …
