### Rod Mill Design Calculations

EF1 Dry Grinding for the same range of work, dry grinding requires 1.3 times as much power as wet grinding. EF2 Open Circuit Grinding when grinding in open circuit ball mills, the amount of extra power required, compared to closed circuit ball milling, is a function of the degree of control required on the product produced. The inefficiency factors for open circuit

More### Rod mills, how they function Mine Engineer.Com

Rod mills are very similar to ball mills, except they use long rods for grinding media. The rods grind the ore by tumbling within the the mill, similar to the grinding balls in a ball mill. To prevent the conditions leading to rod charge tangling, the length to diameter ratio is maintained at 1.4 to 1.6.

More### Rod Mill an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Volumetric load (the percentage of mill internal volume taken up by ore and grinding media) is the key variable as it affects how the charge behaves inside the mill (e.g., shoulder and toe positions, Figure 7.3), but cannot currently be measured online, so it must be inferred from other, measurable parameters.

More### An innovative approach for determining the grinding media

1. Introduction. Grinding operation is used extensively in the industry of beneficiation, metallurgy, chemical engineering, and electric power. Assisted by the impact and abrasion between media (steel ball, steel rod, gravel, ceramic ball) and ore, the grinding operation reduces the particle size in the mill [,,].To produce the qualified size and high liberation of granule for the subsequent

More### Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum Grinding

In Grinding, selecting (calculate) the correct or optimum ball size that allows for the best and optimum/ideal or target grind size to be achieved by your ball mill is an important thing for a Mineral Processing Engineer AKA Metallurgist to do. Often, the ball used in ball mills is oversize “just in case”. Well, this safety factor can cost you much in recovery and/or mill liner wear and

From 74% the media angle exponentially increases with pulp solid content. Unstable milling conditions starts to occur. The Sensomag® clearly detects the load expansion. (Figure 8.) This test also shows that by feeding the mill with a too dilute pulp, the grinding zones between the media are not saturated, leading to high media wear rate.
