2020-10-31 · 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 ...

Discrete element method simulations of a 1:5-scale laboratory ball mill are presented in this paper to study the influence of the contact parameters on the charge motion and the power draw. The position density limit is introduced as an efficient mathematical tool to describe and to compare the macroscopic charge motion in different scenarios, i.a. with different values of the contact parameters.

Industrial ball mills can operate continuously, fed at one end and discharged at the other end. Large to medium-sized ball mills are mechanically rotated on their axis, but small ones normally consist of a cylindrical capped container that sits on two drive shafts (pulleys and belts are used to transmit rotary motion).

Tumbling ball mills or ball mills are most widely used in both wet and dry systems, in batch and continuous operations, and on a small and large scale. Grinding elements in ball mills travel at different velocities. Therefore, collision force, direction and kinetic energy between two or more elements vary greatly within the ball charge.
