  • [PDF] Grinding media quality assurance for the comminution

    One of the basic operations in minerals processing is grinding of the ore to the point where valuable minerals are liberated from the host rock. Subsequent operations then separate the desirable minerals from the gangue or waste. The grinding balls form the major portion of the consumable costs, and can be as high as 40% to 45% of the total costs of communition.

    Ore is stockpiled (1) at the processing plant, and the process begins by feeding the ore into a hopper with a loader. The ore is conveyed, and lime is added (2) to raise the pH of the ore. Following crushing through a jaw crusher (3), the ore is fed into the semi autogenous grinding (SAG) mill (4) along with water and steel balls.

    In Grinding, selecting (calculate) the correct or optimum ball size that allows for the best and optimum/ideal or target grind size to be achieved by your ball mill is an important thing for a Mineral Processing Engineer AKA Metallurgist to do. Often, the ball used in ball mills is oversize “just in case”. Well, this safety factor can cost you much in recovery and/or mill liner wear and
