Ball Mill Motor Power Draw Sizing and Design Formula

2015-10-19  Ball Mill Motor Power Draw Sizing and Design Formula. The following equation is used to determine the power that wet grinding overflow ball mills should draw. For mills larger than 3.3 meters (10 feet) diameter inside liners, the top size of the balls used affects the power drawn by the mill. This is called the ball size factor S.

Analysis of Power Draw in Ball Mills by the Discrete

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

Modelling the influence on power draw of the slurry phase

2016-4-1  If one looks back over the last 70 years or so there is a fairly common theme to most of tumbling mill power draw models (Bond, 1961, Hogg and Fuerstenau, 1972, Arbiter and Harris, 1982, Austin, 1990).This is that the models used the charge shape shown in Fig. 1 in which it was assumed that all particles moved with same rotational rate and that the slurry phase was not explicitly considered.

This phenomenon results in overflow mills usually drawing less power than grate discharge mills that are operating without a slurry pool. This is because by definition overflow mills operate all of the time with a slurry pool.
