More### Slurry Flow Rate Through a Mill

The factors upon which the rate of flow of the pulp through a mill depends appear not to have received extensive investigation. In an article by Anselm translated by Pearson a method for the calculation of the time of passage of cement through a ball mill was given. The basis of the method is that the volume rate of throughput is known and it is assumed that the surface of the powder is

Mar 02, 2014· The residence time distribution (RTD) of mineral slurry and slurry holdup volume in an industrial ball mill has been successfully studies using tracer tests. Six different conditions of solids concentration and three levels of ball loading were assessed. The effects of the slurry solids concentration and the ball loading on the mean residence time of slurry were clearly depicted in the

More### Slurry flow in mills: grate-only discharge mechanism (Part

Jul 01, 2003· All autogenous (AG) and semi-autogenous (SAG) mills use steel or rubber grates to hold back the grinding media, whilst allowing the product slurry to flow through and out of the mill. The total open area, size, shape and position of the holes varies considerably from installation to installation ( Napier-Munn et al., 1996 ), as given in Table 1 .

A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind or blend materials for use in mineral dressing processes, paints, pyrotechnics, ceramics, and selective laser sintering.It works on the principle of impact and attrition: size reduction is done by impact as the balls drop from near the top of the shell. A ball mill consists of a hollow cylindrical shell rotating about its axis. T
