Grinding control strategy on the conventional milling ...

Water addition at Cyclone 1 is used to control particle size of the overflow stream of this circuit. In essence this only determines the mass cut to overflow and underflow. With a finer particle size in the overflow, there is thus less material in the overflow. This implies more material in the under-flow, which is the fresh feed to the second ball mill.

Powder Handling: Size Up Size Reduction

14-08-2017  A ball mill consists of a horizontal revolving cylinder containing a charge of tumbling or cascading balls, pebbles or rods. As a very rough indication, ball/rod charge may occupy 25–50% of the total internal volume of the mill. The length-to-diameter ratio of such a cylinder usually is between 2:1 and 3:1.
