# Ball Mill Determine Top Ball Charge

Aug 01, 2001 Fig. 1 shows typical charge shapes predicted for our ‘standard’ 5 m ball mill and charge (described above) filled to 40% (by volume) for four rotation rates that span the typical range of operational speeds. For such a charge with a realistic size range, the free surface of the charge is well defined at low and intermediate rotation rates. For N=60%, material moves with the mill rotation

• Optimum choice of the make-up ball sizes for maximum

Sep 01, 2013 For the same amount of ball charge, the number of balls in the mill decreases as the ball size increases. Thus, the S values are lower for larger balls. However, larger balls are capable of breaking large particles; therefore, the size at which the S value becomes maximum, x m, increases as the ball size becomes larger

• The starting point for ball mill media and liquid charging is generally as follows: 50% media charge. Assuming 26% void space between spherical balls (non-spherical, irregularly shaped and mixed-size media will increase or decrease the free space) 50% x 26% = 13% free space. Add to this another 45% to 50% above the ball charge for total of 58%

In unit 2, the ball mill charge employed was the same percentage for all sizes, including 25.4 mm. It was determined that, in the unloading process, the sieved ball percentage that uses a bigger mesh was around

If a ball mill contained only coarse particles, then 100% of the mill grinding volume and power draw would be applied to the grinding of coarse particles. In reality, the mill always contains fines: these fines are present in the ball mill feed and are produced as the particles pass through the mill
