Breaking down energy consumption in industrial grinding mills

Jan 17, 2017 The grinding process in ball mills is notoriously known to be highly inefficient: only 1 to 2% of the inputted electrical energy serves for creating new

Calculation of energy required for grinding in a ball mill

Jan 01, 1989 INTRODUCTION The energy consumption for grinding, according to Bond (1961), is deter- mined by the formula: / 10 10 (I) The work index is determined by grinding experiments carried out in a labo- ratory Bond ball mill. Based on the results of grinding experiments, numerical values of the work index Wi are calculated according to the formula

Feb 16, 2015 Grinding energy was approximately 50 per cent of the ball mill and the drying capabilities allowed direct processing of materials of up to 20 per cent moisture content. The main energy issue was the high power consumption of mill fans, with pressure drops of 100mbar not uncommon with high nozzle ring velocities (>70m/s) and internal mill

Energy Use of Fine Grinding in Mineral Processing

Dec 18, 2013 Fine grinding, to P80 sizes as low as 7 μm, is becoming increasingly important as mines treat ores with smaller liberation sizes. This grinding is typically done using stirred mills such as the Isamill or Stirred Media Detritor. While fine grinding consumes less energy than primary grinding, it can still account for a substantial part of a mill’s energy budget.
