Cement Grinding

The principle of Grate Discharge grinding is nearly universally adapted in the cement grinding industry. Grate Discharge Ball Mills are the rule rather than the exception. Rod Mills for raw and finish grinding begin to enter the picture. Larger and larger diameter mills become common. Lengths tend to shorten. Cement grinding using Grate Discharge principles developed in the ore milling industry applied to the cement industry. This experience plus the years of manufacturing know how unquestionably qualify Grate Discharge grinding for the Cement Industry.

Comminution Theory & Process Equipment

This page is devoted to the subject “From the Comminution Theory to Practice by selection of the correct Process Equipment” by taking you step by step through some of the variables encountered in the specific part of Comminution called grinding and how each of these affect your operations. Should it be possible to reduce all of these variables to a simple mathematical formula the selection of a grinding mill would, of course, be simple. Many approaches to this have been made but to date a foolproof formula, both mathematically and practically

Grinding Media

The subject of grinding media is still controversial. The following information is general and based upon facts gathered from many operations.

General statements can be made and are worthy of consideration when selecting grinding media. For the best results it has been found that the smallest diameter ball or rod which will break down the particular material to be ground is desirable since greatest surface area is obtained. From the standpoint of economy, the larger the media the higher will be the liner consumption and media consumption. The minimum size of grinding balls should be selected

Rod Mill & Ball Mill Manufacturer & Supplier of Grinding Mills

All Ball Mill Manufacturers understand the object of the grinding process is a mechanical reduction in size of crushable material. Grinding can be undertaken in many ways. The most common way for high capacity industrial purposes is to use a tumbling charge of grinding media in a rotating cylinder or drum. The fragmentation of the material in that charge occurs through pressure, impact, and abrasion.

Grinding is converting energy. When the grinding charge is forced to tumble the motor energy is converted into new particle surface and heat.

An important point for the economy is that the size of

Grinding Mills: Ball Mill & Rod Mill Design & Parts

Common types of grinding mills include Ball Mills and Rod Mills. This includes all rotating mills with heavy grinding media loads.  This article focuses on ball and rod mills excluding SAG and AG mills. Although their concepts are very similar, they are not discussed here.

Photographs of a glass ended laboratory ball mill show action of ball mass within the mill. The action of other grinding media is similar.

As the mill revolves, lifters assist in picking up the grinding charge and elevate it to an angle at which gravity overcomes friction and centrifugal force. The charge then cascades downward

Rod Mills

The Steel Head Rod Mill (sometimes call a bar mill) gives the ore dressing engineer a very wide choice in grinding design. He can easily secure a standard Steel Head Rod Mill suited to his particular problem. The successful operation of any grinding unit is largely dependent on the method of removing the ground pulp. The Steel Head Rod Mill is available with five types of discharge trunnions and each type trunnion is available in small, medium, or large diameter. The types of Rod Mill discharge trunnions are:

  1. overflow,
  2. perforated overflow,
  3. return spiral,
  4. grate, and
  5. peripheral.

Thus the engineer can fit any one of fifteen variations of sizes and type of discharging

Small Ball Mills

A PULP level sufficiently high to interpose a bed of pulp, partly to cushion the impact of the balls, permits a maximum crushing effect with a minimum wear of steel. The pulp level of these Small Ball Mills can be varied from discharging at the periphery to discharging at a point about halfway between the trunnion and the periphery. The mill shell is of welded plate steel with integral end flanges turned for perfect alignment, and the heads are semi-steel, with hand holes in the discharge end through which the

Ball Mill & Rod Mill Design

In all ore dressing and milling processes, including flotation, cyanidation, gravity concentration, and amalgamation, it is necessary to crush and grind, often with rob mill & ball mills, the ore in order to liberate the minerals. In the chemical and process industries, grinding is an important step in preparing raw materials for subsequent treatment. In present day practice, ore is reduced to a size many times finer than can be obtained with crushers. Over a period of many years various fine grinding machines have been developed and used, but the

Bond Rod Mill Work Index Equipment & Apparatus Review

Commentary on the apparatus of the Bond rod mill work index

by Alex Doll
December, 2015
alex.doll@sagmilling.com

The Bond “Third Theory” of comminution was originally divided into three size classes reflecting the varieties of comminution equipment common during the time period when Bond (and his collaborators) were gathering the information to calibrate comminution models.  The middle size class, represented by rod milling, is fitted to a tumbling test, referred to as the Bond rod mill work index (WiRM, or RWi).  The apparatus used to determine this work index was described in
