ball mills are rather inefficient, and typically require 10–20 kw·h of electric power to make a tonne of mix. the aerofall mill is sometimes used for pre-grinding large wet feeds. it is a short, large-diameter semi-autogenous mill, typically containing 15% by volume of very large 130 mm grinding balls. feed can be up to 250 mm, and the .
this results in the generation of fine particles at greater energy efficiency than tumbling mills. for example, grinding a pyrite concentrate so that 80% of the particles are less than 12 µm 0.012 mm consumes over 120 kilowatt-hours per tonne kwh/t of ore in a ball mill using 9 mm balls,.
mill grinding contains a number of types of mill, but these are only a small subset of the types of mill. for instance the milling machine page referred to in the mill page refers to a number of other machines which are often called mills, but are not grinding mills; and the current mill page refers to e.g. building types such as textile mill .
ability to achieve minerals liberation by coarser grinding for example, 95% liberation of copper-zinc ores is achieved by vsi grinding to minus 0,3 mm, in comparison a similar result can be achieved with a ball mill grinding to minus 0,074 mm .
a stamp mill or stamp battery or stamping mill is a type of mill machine that crushes material by pounding rather than grinding, either for further processing or for extraction of metallic ores. breaking material down is a type of unit operation . 2.1 19th century. 3 other stamping mills. 7 external links. detail of californian stamp showing .
a ball mill is a horizontal cylinder partly filled with steel balls or occasionally other shapes that rotates on its axis, imparting a tumbling and cascading action to the balls. material fed through the mill is crushed by impact and ground by attrition between the balls. the grinding media are usually made of high-chromium steel. the smaller grades are occasionally cylindrical 'pebs' rather than spherical.
