(sag) mill, ball mill, and crusher. a ball mill is a slightly inclined, horizon-tal rotating cylinder, partially filled with ceramic balls, flint pebbles or stainless steel balls, that grinds material to the necessary fineness by friction and im-pact with tumbling balls (fig. 2). an example of an industry-standard comminution circuit providing high.
After the initial comminution stages of crushing and/or sag/ag milling, the following grinding stages is usually carried out using steel charged ball or tower mills. the impact of grinding using steel media can offset any benefits gained by improved liberation, particularly as the target size decreases below 25 m.
the decision to add another ball mill to one circuit was made in part using a comminution economic evaluation tool (ceet), which was introduced at the 1999 cmp meeting. ceet is made up of three primary components: a ball mill model based on bond’s third theory of comminution; a sag/ag model using the sag power index (spi) energy relationship .
fig. 2 showing a three stage rod mill ball mill arrangement is an example of a complex grinding circuit. stage concentration further complicates the flow. multi-stage circuits being the most expensive to install, often give the greatest operating flexibility and offer the best possibilities for the most efficient use of available power and wear resistant materials.
the comminution circuit consists of jaw crusher, sag and ball mill circuit as presented in fig. 1. the targeted grind size was p 80 of 150 m. the blasting, crushing and grinding models used in this research have been previously calibrated using the survey data.

Bm = ball mill specific energy from t 80 1.7 mm to final product p 80, using bond’s law, (kwh/t) w t = total grinding mill circuit specific energy (kwh/t) note that k bm is the composite of ef3, ef4 and ef5 factors for ball milling (rowland, 1982). morrell and smcc morrell (2004) developed a methodology for predicting specific energy with.
Closed circuit secondary/tertiary crushing is followed by ball milling. this is because such crushing circuits tend to produce a product size distribution which is relatively steep when compared to the ball mill circuit cyclone overflow. this is illustrated in app figure 1, which shows measured distributions from an open and closed crusher.

making the right investment. the comminution process, which includes both crushing and grinding, is one of the world’s most energy-intensive industrialn uses at least 3% of total global electricity production and according to the coalition for energy efficient comminution, it accounts, on average, for more than 50% of a mine’s energy consumption and 10% of total .
Ef5bm=[ p80+10.3 1.145 p80] ( 3 ) the ef4 formula requires both the rod mill and ball mill work index (rod mill wi is used to calculate the optimal feed size) and because this is a “single-stage ball mill” calculation, the f80 is actually the rod mill feed size (10,000 m) from table 1 and the p80 is the ball mill circuit product. the ef5 factor only applies below 75 m to ball.
mining comminution – crusher, ball mill, and advanced analytics? mining operations are complex environments. even for something as “simple” as surface mining or open pit mining, there are a whole host of variables to consider. small changes in blasting operations, haul truck speed, stockpiling, and equipment can have significant impact on .

In contrast, when the sse75 was calculated, it showed the sag mill consumed 20% less energy to produce final product material than the ball mill. since the aim of a comminution circuit is to generate final product material, the sse methodology gives a fairer indication of energy efficiency.

It is commonly referred to as a sabc circuit, for semi-autogenous ball mill crusher (sabc). this circuit shows a semi-autogenous grinding (sag)/ball mill circuit where both grinding mills are in closed circuit, with the sag mill closed with a crusher to control the amount of ‘critical size’ material in the circuit.
ball-mill circuit operation. very often in sag circuits, the ball-mill circuit is neglected. in many operations where economics dictate that throughput is worth more economically than the required sacrifice in grind, the focus shifts to throughput so much that the available ball-mill power is not used to the fullest extent.
a possible circuit change would send the crusher discharge to the ball mill circuit, better balancing the work between the sag and ball mill. when ball mill-limited and with low ore variability, a similar circuit modification redirecting flows can be done. it may be possible to redirect some of the ball mill hydrocyclone coarse fraction back to .
