Ideal for grinding finer products, stirred mills are known for their energy efficiency and compact design, reducing floor space requirements. These mills are based on gravity-induced and fluidized technologies, allowing for the optimum equipment solution for all comminution circuits covering secondary, tertiary, fine, ultrafine, regrind, and lime slaking applications.

system geometry. In stirred ball milling, the mill con­ tains the solids being ground, the liquid (in wet grind­ ing) and, more importantly, the grinding media. It is extremely unlikely, therefore, that the behavior would be Newtonian. Furthermore, the density in Equation 3 is no longer clearly defined. Since there is a consid­

2-3 Grinding mill and studies A stirred ball grinding mill, manufactured by Drais­ werke , Germany, was employed for the grind­ ing tests. A diagrammatic representation of the mill in continuous mode is shown in Figure 2. The grind­ ing was carried out in a 150-mm-diameter by 420-mm­ long stainless chamber equipped with seven 120-mm

An experimental investigation on grinding mechanism for calcite used in a stirred ball mill was carried out. The slurry concentration and the amount of grinding aids were chosen as main experimental factors of the grinding process. The effect of grinding aids on particle size distribution and grinding efficiency, defined as the increases of specific surface area per the …

Figure 10.1 shows the difference in energy efficiency between a laboratory ball mill and a stirred mill grinding a gold ore using 6 mm diameter alumina balls as media. At a fine grind size there is a clear advantage in energy consumption for a stirred mill over the tumbling mill. However, as the grind size coarsens, the difference in specific energy required to achieve the …

The grinding by a stirred ball mill to submicron range has been achieved commercially in many cases. A series of grinding experiments using a vertical stirred grinding media mill and inorganic powders such as calcite, pyrophyllite and talc as test samples were carried out to clar-ify the grinding mechanism of the stirred grinding media mill.

circumstances stirred milling is significantly more efficient than ball milling. As a case in point, the VERTIMILL® grinding mill has been cited in a couple of papers (Nesset et al., 2006; Mazzinghy et al., 2012) as being some 35% to 40% more efficient than ball mills for fine grinding with the same ore and size distribution.

The results of discrete element method simulation were compared with actual grinding experimental results. The grinding rate constant K can be expressed as K=a exp(bn), where n is the rotation speed. To investigate the correlation between K and the simulation results, a new factor, the calculated force, was defined as F cal =average force acting on a ball …

Conventional ball mills rotate the mill body (a horizontal cylinder), tumbling both rock and metallic balls. Stirred mills use an internal auger to agitate the feedstock (ore which is fed into the mill as a slurry) and grinding media (sand, ceramic balls), which produces finer, more uniform grind sizes with reduced energy consumption.

STM also developed a new stirred mill for coarse grinding applications up to 6-mm feed size. The Vertical Power Mill (VPM) line ranges in size from 700 to 12,500 kW with high flow rates and potential energy savings of up to 40%. Due to its small footprint, STM is promoting the VPM as a viable ball mill replacement in HPGR circuits or for ...
