Keywords: Ball mills, grinding circuit, process control. I. Introduction Grinding in ball mills is an important technological process applied to reduce the size of particles which may have different nature and a wide diversity of physical, mechanical and chemical characteristics. Typical examples are the various ores, minerals, limestone, etc.

WhatsApp: +86 18838072829How a Grate Discharge Ball Mill Works Here I try to explain how ground slurry is discharged from a grate ball mill (or SAG). How it works is, the slurry flows across the grate as it would a screen panel. On the other side of the grate/screens are veins like a pump impeller. As the mill turns/rotates the slurry is "pumped" out and discharged.

WhatsApp: +86 18838072829A ball mill operates by rotating a cylinder with steel or ceramic balls, causing the balls to fall back into the cylinder and onto the material to be ground. The rotation of the cylinder is typically between 4 to 20 revolutions per minute, depending on the diameter of the mill. The larger the diameter, the slower the rotation.
