Figure 8.2 Media motion in the tumbling mill. 8.1 Grinding 8.1.1 Grinding action Industrial grinding machines used in the mineral processing industries are mostly of the tumbling mill type. These mills exist in a variety of types - rod, ball, pebble autogenous and semi-autogenous. The grinding action is induced by relative motion between the

Get PriceFigure 2 shows the active grinding area for an optimally charged ball mill. As the drum rotates, the media should ideally form a sloping pile that maintains a 45 degree angle so that there is a constant cascading of media at the surface. Because the media is falling the fastest and for the longest distance at the top of the pile, the majority

Get PriceFor example, when 60% of the solids in a ball mill is coarse, then the coarse solids inventory * in the mill is 60%, and only 60% of the mill grinding volume and power is used for the grinding of coarse particles. The classification system efficiency of the circuit is then only 60%.
