Read MoreApr 01, 2008 Ball mill grinding circuits are important unit operations in the production of metals from ore. The function of the grinding mill is to reduce the particle size of the ore such that the valuable mineral constituent is exposed and can be recovered in the subsequent flotation operation.
Read MoreFor primary grinding, the ratio could vary between 11and 1.81. For fine regrinding in open circuit, the ratio ranges from 1.31 to 1.51. Some ball mills are separated in to compartments by grates. The grates hold back particles above a certain size for additional grinding. The compartments could contain different ball

Read MoreApr 08, 2021 The grinding circuit is the most expensive part of the mining process, because they consume a lot of energy, it is a high intensity energy environment. They also consume a lot of steel and grinding media. The consumption of grinding media is a significant part of the costs of the mineral processing plant.
Read MoreIn a ball mill circuit, the output can be defined as the production rate of fines of the circuit. As for any output, ball mill circuit output is a function of both its inputs and efficiencies. There are two inputs to a ball mill circuit the ore fed to the circuit and the power delivered by the grinding mill.
Read MoreJul 01, 2019 In this study, a fuzzy logic self-tuning PID controller based on an improved disturbance observer is designed for control of the ball mill grinding circuit. The ball mill grinding circuit has vast applications in the mining, metallurgy, chemistry, pharmacy, and research laboratories however, this system has some challenges. The grinding circuit is a multivariable system in which the high ...
