The breakage and liberation of minerals are the key to fluidized mining for minerals. In the ball milling process, steel balls function as not only a grinding action implementer but also energy carrier to determine the breakage behavior of ores and the production capacity of the mill. When ground products present a much coarse or much fine particle size distribution, the …

The effects of percent solids, mill loading, and grinding time on product size distribution and ball wear were studied in a laboratory ball mill for a taconite ore. Mild steel balls and HCLA steel balls were used to examine the role that ball hardness play in grinding. Net production of −44-µm (−325-mesh) material reached maximum at 70% solids, whereas the ball wear decreased as …

United States power consumption is related to comminution (Comminution and Energy Consumption, 1981). With this in I mind it is understandable that one would want to control a grinding circuit so that the energy required to process a given ton of ore is optimal. .Furthermore, overgrinding an ore and the subsequent production of fines can reduce the
