The feed samples of X, Y, and Z iron ores were ground in the BBM (ball mill refers to a BBM of size 300 mm × 300 mm with smooth liners) to identify the PSD, BWI, and RT of each ore. Grinding experiments were conducted according to Bond's standard test procedure [].For each iron ore sample, the RT taken to produce 250% circulating load in the BBM was …

output of secondary crusher becomes feed for grinding process in common way. Thus, the size of feed for grinding o r milling stays in the range o f 5 - 250 mm (Wills, 2006).

Obviously, the energy consumption slightly increased with increasing feed size. This is probably because the decrease in feed size promoted the motion of the grinding media and improved the flowability of the pulp. The size of feed 6 was the finest, which caused a lower resistance to stirrers and thus gave a lower draw power of the motor.

VertiMill Sizing Example. This was a case study for an expansion of a 2200 TPD SAG Mill operation. The client wanted to increase the plant to 2700 TPD @ 30um. Some plant samples were taken, work indexes obtained and data simulated. As it turns out a single 3000HP Vertimill would get that done.

the media size and feed particle size distribution. For the same stirrer speed, media load and slurry percent solids, it was found that the best grinding efficiency when grinding UG2 ore of feed sizes F80 = 55μm and F80 = 120μm were achieved when the 2mm media was used. However, the 3.5mm media was the most efficient media to grind the UG2 ore

inferring performance from parameters such as feed rate, cyclone pressure and density is inaccurate, since particle size is influenced by a wide range of parameters from the size and grade of incoming ore, to mill charge and cyclone pressure. Under- and over-grinding both result in operational and economic penalties.

Some of the breakage and selection function parameters of the PGM ore was measured at the University of the Witwatersrand, using a one-size fraction method developed by Austin et al. .The laboratory mill used has the diameter of 0.302 m, length of 0.282 m, eight liners with dimensions of height (h) of 13 mm, width (w) of 25 mm and length (l) of 272 mm.

With regard to the Selection Function (Si), when comparing the characteristic a values (sl ope of Si with respect to particle size), faster breakage was obtained for the chromite component, followed by UG2 ore and the non chromite component.

The particle size distribution has been monitored in the input and output of the high pressure grinding rolls for each experiment. The cylinder pressure that is transmitted to the particles has been determined. New population balance models are presented for high pressure grinding rolls with parameter adjust for tantalum ore.

The answer is the cyclones shouldn't be used to try and control grind. The major factors that influence the grind-size are the feed PSD, ore characteristics (both the coarse breakage (Axb/DWi/WS AG etc), and fine grinding (BWi) parameters), grinding power, grinding media, classification efficiency and throughput rate.
