Overflow VS Grate Discharge Ball or Mill - Why Retrofit

24/06/2015  This is important in both rod mill and ball mill grinding. First, regardless of how fine a grind is required, overgrinding is costly and undesirable. The ideal condition is to remove the particles as soon as they have reached the optimum size. Secondly, in grinding applications where a minimum amount of fine material is preferred, again a rapid flow through the grinding mill is required. These can be accomplished with the grate for ball mill

Optimization of mill performance by using

The performance of ball mills is very sensitive to the volumetric mill filling which influences grinding media wear rates, throughput, power draw, and product grind size. A pilot plant investigation with an overflow mill discharge has been conducted. For a given throughput, it seems that the pool size has a major influence on the product grind.
