10/07/2020· The rod mill discharge is pumped to the primary hydrocyclones that classify the particles by size. The larger particles flow to feed the ball mills while the fine particles report to two flash flotation cells. The ball mills are in “closed circuit”, meaning that the discharge is pumped to the classifying units (primary hydrocyclones) and the particles will not pass to the next grinding

AG/SAG mills can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or three stages of crushing and screening, a rod mill, and some or all of the work of a ball mill. Because of the range of mill sizes available, AG/SAG milling can often be accomplished with fewer lines than in a conventional rod mill/ball mill circuit. A diagram of types of AG/SAG

Ball mills tumble iron or steel balls with the ore. The balls are initially 5–10 cm diameter but gradually wear away as grinding of the ore proceeds. The feed to ball mills (dry basis) is typically 75 vol.-% ore and 25% steel. The ball mill is operated in closed circuit with a particle-size measurement device and size-control cyclones. The

Open Circuit Rod Mill-Closed Circuit Ball Mill. This configuration has proven in the past to be a most reliable system due to the fact that rod mills are not particularly susceptible to variations in feed size. However, the necessity to procure grinding rods may limit the usefulness of this approach in certain locations. Open Circuit Rod Mill-Open Circuit Ball Mill . This configuration is
No 1 rod mill/ball mill circuit was operating very efﬁ ciently when comparing the combined operating work indices for both mills with the rod mill and ball mill laboratory work indices.

Conical Ball Mills Used wet or dry, closed or open circuit, conical ball mills provide a classifying action within the body of the mill due to particles of greater size tending to reside at a point of greater diameter. This characteristic delivers increased efficiency and lower power consumption. Conical mills may also be air-swept when run dry.

A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind or blend materials for use in mineral dressing processes, paints, pyrotechnics, ceramics, and selective laser sintering. It works on the principle of impact and attrition: size reduction is done by impact as the balls drop from near the top of the shell. A ball mill consists of a hollow cylindrical shell rotating about its axis. The axis of the
