Effects of slurry filling and mill speed on the net power ...

The pool of slurry is known to lower the power drawn to the mill. An attempt to ascertain this observation by relating load orientation to mill power for a range of speeds and slurry fillings was undertaken. To this end, a Platinum ore (−850 μm) was used to prepare a slurry at 65% solids concentration by mass.

Effect of lifters and mill speed on particle behaviour ...

The power consumption is usually determined by charge fill level, lifter height, lifter number, and mill speed. However, almost all of the classical theories for calculating the power consumption of ball mills disregard the effect of lifters and only focus on rotation rate, charge fill level, as well as size and shape of grinding media, thereby ...

2019-10-31 · power at all charge levels studied. However, beyond this speed, the power drawn by the mill with cylpebs started to decrease while it kept increasing when spheres were used (up to around 90% of critical). The study therefore showed that the maximum power that a mill can draw depends on the grinding media shape.

Analysis of Power Draw in Ball Mills by the Discrete ...

Abstract Ball mills, like other comminution devices, consume large amounts of energy. Mill operators often have to assess the power draft of mills for an entirely different set of operating conditions or for a reconfigured circuit. It is shown that the power draft can be accurately predicted from analysis of the motion of the charge. The motion of the charge is rigorously simulated with a ...
