Les Minéralurgistes du Canada, Ottawa, 21 janvier 2020 Takeaways The RGM are a intriguing technology They have a significantly higher packing density than a ball charge which increases the effect of filling ratio on power draw. They are subject to greater centrifugal forces than balls in tumbling mills (which affect their trajectories within the mill).

The acceleration factor of the ball or rod mass is a function of the peripheral speed of the mill. Thus. n = c9np/√D, the above equation becomes P = f1 (D²)·f5 (πD c9 np/√D) = cs np D2.5. As a first approximation, the capacity, T, of a mill may be considered as a function of the force acting inside the mill.

A ball mill also known as pebble mill or tumbling mill is a milling machine that consists of a hallow cylinder containing balls; mounted on a metallic frame such that it can be rotated along its longitudinal axis. The balls which could be of different diameter occupy 30 – 50 % of the mill volume and its size depends on the feed and mill size.

The ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media. The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 1–1.5 times the shell diameter ( Figure 8.11 ). The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 20–40% water by weight.

The most common types of tumbling mills are the rod-, ball- and autogenous mills. Depending on the type of ore, there are different charge media to be used. In rod and ball mills, the different charge media are usually made of steel and added to the mill. In autogenous mills, the ore itself is used as charge medium.
