where R = radius of ball mill; r = radius of ball. For R = 1000 mm and r = 50 mm, n c = 30.7 rpm. But the mill is operated at a speed of 15 rpm. Therefore, the mill is operated at 100 x 15/30.7 = 48.86 % of critical speed. If 100 mm dia balls are replaced by 50 mm dia balls, and the other conditions are remaining the same,

How To Determine Mathematically Critical Speed Of A Ball Mill. Question On Critical Speed Of Ball Mill. the critical speed is used for the determination of ball mill ideal operating speed but for comparison rod mills would operate between 50 to 95 of the critical speed the faster the mill speed the greater the wear on the rods and liners so.

ness ranging from 1 to 5, while a jet mill can grind materials with Mohs hardness as high as 10. High hardness materi-als become very abrasive; therefore, they are not suitable for high-speed hammer mills. In a typical jet mill, grinding action is caused mainly by particle-particle collisions, so wear to the mill's internals is less of an issue.

Rod mills are used in an open circuit between crushing and the ball mill. They often operate in wet and where the pulp contains up to 50% solid by mass. This machine is equally very applicable to dry where it could take a feed that has achieved 6% moisture. As such, when the product is sticky, rod mills are preferred over ball mills.

Show that the critical speed of rotation for a ball mill, defined as the speed required to take the balls just to the apex of revolution is equal to (g/a) 1/2 /2π revolutions per second, where a is the radius of the mill and g is the acceleration due to gravity. Determine the rotation speed for a ball mill with a radius of 5 cm which is operating at 75% of the critical rotation speed.

investigation is to determine if liberation can be changed by mill operating parameters. It is hoped that this work can be used as a precursor to the development of a model that can predict liberation given the various ranges of operating parameters. Mill speed, mill charge, ball size, and wet grinding are the parameters which have been selected

A ball mill with a breaker plate and a similarly sized typical ball mill without a breaker plate were studied in order to determine if the breaker plate can improve mill grinding efficiency. At hypocritical frequencies of rotation, it was found that the ball mill with the breaker plate grinds more efficiently, and especially so for particles larger than 1 mm. The breakage function for the …
