Copper powder (% purity, median particle size x 50 = 45 μm, Aldrich chemistry) was used as shown in Fig. 1. Mechanical alloying (MA) was carried out at two types of rotation speeds: low (10, 50, and 100 rpm) and high (300, 500, and 700 rpm).

Quartz was the material used to perform the experiment and was arranged into 3 monosizes namely 8 mm + mm, 4 mm + mm and2 mm + mm for the experiment. A mill run having a mixture of the 3 ball diameter sizes was also conducted. It was

Load behaviour, mill power and breakage as affected by media shapes were studied in a pilot laboratory mill. An inductive proximity probe, light emitting diode, phototransistor and video photographs were used to determine the

WhatsApp: +86 18838072829In the case of ball mills, the axial dispersion is higher and the mean residence time is shorter than those in rod mills. In rod mills, the axial dispersion is lower—close to plug flow ( Lynch, 1977 )—as well as selective breakage (compared with ball mills) produce a narrower size distribution product than that of ball mills.

WhatsApp: +86 18838072829After implementation of the new ball size distribution the energy consumption decrease was recorded as 17 per cent. The new ball size distribution did not change the power draw of the mill, but the mills production capacity was increased from 115tph to 150tph at the same quality figures. The energy consumption fell from kWh/t to kWh/t.

WhatsApp: +86 18838072829The discharge end design of a ball mill plays an important role in discharging the desired particle sizes (−150 + 10 µm) and the percentage of recirculating load from the discharge end of the ball mill. In continuous wet ball mills, the composition of feed (hard ore or soft ore) to the mill varies continuously, leading to uncontrolled ...

It also showed that stirred mill produced finer product than the ball mill at around 40% lesser consumption of energy.

In case the feed to ball mill was equal to 1200 Mg/h, it resulted in a reduction of 60 Mg/h of the weight of coarse particles in circulation. It also enabled the processing of a larger feed size without the risk of balls being thrown from the mill.
