## Mill Charge an overview ScienceDirect Topics

8.3.1 Rod Mill Charge Rod mill charges usually occupy about 45% of the internal volume of the mill. A closely packed charge of single sized rods will have a porosity of 9.3%. With a mixed charge of small and large diameter rods, the porosity of a static load could be reduced even further. However, close packing of the charge rarely occurs and an operating bed porosity of 40% is common. Overcharging results in poor grinding and losses due to abrasion of rods and liners. Undercharging also promotes more abrasion of the rods. The height (or depth) of charge is measured in the same manner as for ball mill.

## Ball Mill Charge Grinding & Classification Circuits

2021-8-16 The ball charge and ore charge volume is a variable, subject to what is the target for that operation. The type of mill also is a factor as if it is an overflow mill (subject to the diameter of the discharge port) is usually up to about 40-45%. If it is a grate discharge you will have more flexibility of the total charge.

## Mill Steel Charge Volume Calculation

2015-6-19 We can calculate the steel charge volume of a ball or rod mill and express it as the % of the volume within the liners that is filled with grinding media. While the mill is stopped, the charge volume can be gotten by measuring the diameter inside the liners and the distance from the top of the charge to the top of the mill.

## Ball mill media optimization Metcom Tech

2018-12-4 The test mill (Fig. 2) is 0.6 m (2 ft) inside diameter by 0.2 m (0.67 ft) inside length. It is operated at 65 percent of critical speed. Each ball charge is close to 95 kg (209 lb), occupying 34 percent of the mill volume. Balls are used that represent a fully graded charge based on constant wear rate in a continuously operating mill. Slurry volume occupies the 40 percent voids volume in the 34 percent ball charge. The drive shaft is torque-metered and records once per second. Drive losses (a roller bearing between the mill and the torque meter) have been measured to be negligible. Media charges were prepared by weighing and counting out the number of balls needed in each size class, determined by their individual weights and the specific gravity of steel. Twenty-seven equilibrium media charges are currently available for testing. Examples are given in Table 1.The test mill

## How to Handle the Charge Volume of a Ball Mill or Rod Mill

2020-3-27 Ball mill charge becomes measurably swollen only when there is a buildup of large unground material in the ball mill or when the density of the pulp in a wet mill is extremely high. Although these conditions are seldom encountered, it is recommended that ball mills be ground out prior to shutdown for measurement of the charge level.

## Ball Mill Loading Dry Milling Paul O. Abbe

The starting point for ball mill media and solids charging generally starts as follows: 50% media charge. Assuming 26% void space between spherical balls (non-spherical, irregularly shaped and mixed-size media will increase or decrease the free space) 50% x 26% = 13% free space. Add to this another 10%-15% above the ball charge
