grinding mill design & ball mill manufacturer

All Grinding Mill & Ball Mill Manufacturers understand the object of the grinding process is a mechanical reduction in size of crushable material. Grinding can be undertaken in many ways. The most common way for high capacity industrial purposes is to use a tumbling charge of grinding media in a rotating cylinder or drum. The fragmentation of the material in that charge occurs through pressure, impact, and abrasion.

The choice of mill design depends on the particle size distribution in the feed and in the product wanted. Often the grinding is more economic when executed in a primary step, followed by a secondary step, giving a fine size product.

C=central trunnion discharge P=peripheral discharge R=spherical roller trunnion bearing, feed end H=hydrostatic shoe bearing, feed end R=spherical roller trunnion bearing, discharge end K=ring gear and pinion drive

Type CHRK is designed for primary autogenous grinding, where the large feed opening requires a hydrostatic trunnion shoe bearing. Small and batch grinding mills, with a diameter of 700 mm and more, are available. These mills are of a special design and described on special request by allBall Mill Manufacturers.

The different types of grinding mills are based on the different types of tumbling media that can be used: steel rods (rod mills), steel balls (ball mills), and rock material (autogenous mills, pebble mills).

The grinding charge in a rod mill consists of straight steel rods with an initial diameter of 50-100 mm. The length of the rods is equal to the shell length inside the head linings minus about 150 mm. The rods are fed through the discharge trunnion opening. On bigger mills, which need heavy rods, the rod charging is made with a pneumatic or manual operated rod charging device. The mill must be stopped every day or every second day for a few minutes in order to add new rods and at the same time pick out broken rod pieces.

As the heavy rod charge transmits a considerable force to each rod, a rod mill can not be built too big. A shell length above 6100 mm can not be recommended. As the length to diameter ratio of the mill should be in the range of 1,2-1,5, the biggest rod mill will convert maximum 1500 kW.

Rod mills are used for primary grinding of materials with a top size of 20-30 mm (somewhat higher for soft materials). The production of fines is low and consequently a rod mill is the right machine when a steep particle size distribution curve is desired. A product with 80% minus 500 microns can be obtained in an economical manner.

The grinding charge in a ball mill consist of cast or forged steel balls. These balls are fed together with the feed and consequently ball mills can be in operation for months without stopping. The ball size is often in the diameter range of 20-75 mm.

The biggest size is chosen when the mill is used as a primary grinding mill. For fine grinding of e.g. sands, balls can be replaced by cylpebs, which are heat treated steel cylinders with a diameter of 12-40 mm and with the same length as the diameter.

Ball mills are often used as secondary grinding mills and for regrinding of middlings in concentrators. Ball mills can be of the overflow or of the grate discharge type. Overflow discharge mills are used when a product with high specific surface is wanted, without any respect to the particle size distribution curve. Overflow discharge mills give a final product in an open circuit. Grate discharge mills are used when the grinding energy shall be concentrated to the coarse particles without production of slimes. In order to get a steep particle size distribution curve, the mill is used in closed circuit with some kind of classifier and the coarse particles known as classifier underflow are recycled. Furthermore, it should be observed that a grate discharge ball mill converts about 20% more energy than an overflow discharge mill with the same shell dimensions.

Ball mill shells are often furnished with two manholes. Ball mills with small balls or cylpebs can produce the finest product of all tumbling mills. 80% minus 74 microns is a normal requirement from the concentrators.The CRRK series of wet grinding ball mills are tabulatedbelow.

No steel grinding media is used in a fully autogenous mill. When choosing primary autogenous grinding, run of mine ore up to 200-300 mm in size is fed to the mill. When using a crushing step before the grinding, the crusher setting should be 150-200 mm. The feed trunnion opening must be large enough to avoid plugging. The biggest pieces in the mill are important for the size reduction of middle size pieces, which in their turn are important for the finer grinding. Thus the tendency of the material to be reduced in size by pressure, impact, and abrasion is a very important question when primary autogenous grinding is proposed.

When autogenous grinding is used in the second grinding step, the grinding media is size-controlled and often in the range of 30-70 mm. This size is called pebbles and screened out in the crushing station and fed to the mill in controlled proportion to the mill power. The pebble weight is 5-25% of the total feed to the plant, depending on the strength of the pebbles. Sometimes waste rock of high strength is used as pebbles.

Pebble mills should always be of the grate discharge type. The energy that can be converted in a mill depends on the total weight of the grinding charge. Consequently, pebble mills convert less power per mill volume unit than rod and ball mills.

High quality steel rods and balls are a considerable part of the operating costs. Autogenous grinding should, therefore, be considered and tested when a new plant shall be designed. As a grinding mill is built to last for decades, it is more important to watch the operation costs than the price of the mill installation. The CRRK series of wet grinding pebble mills are tabulated below.

Wet grinding is definitely the most usual method of grinding minerals as it incorporates many advantages compared to dry grinding. A requirement is, however, that water is available and that waste water, that can not be recirculated, can be removed from the plant without any environmental problems. Generally, the choice depends on whether the following processing is wet or dry.

When grinding to a certain specific surface area, wet grinding has a lower power demand than dry grinding. On the other hand, the wear of mill lining and grinding media is lower in dry grinding. Thus dry grinding can be less costly.

The feed to a dry grinding system must be dried if the moisture content is high. A ball mill is more sensitive to clogging than a rod mill. An air stream through the mill can reduce the moisture content and thus make a dry grinding possible in certain applications.

Due to the hindering effect that the ball charge gives to the material flow in dry grinding, the ball charge is not more than 28-35% of the mill volume. This should be compared with 40-45% in wet grinding. The expression used for this phenomenon is that the charge in a dry grinding mill is swollen.

Big dry grinding ball mills are often two-compartment mills, with big balls in the first compartment and small balls or cylpebs in the second one. An extra grate wall is used to separate the two charges.

The efficiency of wet grinding is affected by the percentage of solids. If the pulp is too thick, the grinding media becomes covered by too thick a layer of material, which hinders grinding. The opposite effect may be obtained if the dilution is too high, and this may also reduce the grinding efficiency. A high degree of dilution may sometimes be desirable in order to suppress excessive slime formation.

The specific power required for a certain grinding operation, usually expressed in kWh/ton, is a function of both the increase in the specific surface of the material (expressed in cm/cm or cm/g) and of the grinding resistance of the material. This can be expressed by the formula

where c is a material constant representing the grinding resistance, and So and S are the specific surfaces of the material before and after the grinding operation respectively. The formula is an expression of Rittingers Law which is shown by tests to be reasonably accurate up to a specific surface of 10,000 cm/cm.

When the grinding resistance c has been determined by trial grinding to laboratory scale, the net power E required for each grinding stage desired may be determined by the formula, at least as long as Rittingers Law is valid. If grinding is to be carried out not to a certain specific surface S but to a certain particle size k, the correlation between S and k must be determined. The particle size is often expressed in terms of particle size at e.g. 95, 90 or 80% quantity passing and is denoted k95, k90 or k80.

where E =the specific power consumption expressed in kWh/short ton. Eo = a proportionality and work factor called work index k80p = particle size of the product at 80% passage (micron) k80f =the corresponding value for the raw material (micron)

The value of Eo is a function of the physical properties of the raw material, the screen analyses of the product and raw material respectively, and the size of the mill. The value for easily-ground materials is around 7, while for materials that have a high grinding resistance the value is around 17.

Eo is correlated to a certain reduction ratio, mill diameter etc. Corrections must be made for each case. The simplest method of calculating the specific power consumption is test grinding in a laboratory mill, and comparison of the results with a known reference material. The sample is ground in batches for 3, 6,12 minutes, a screen analysis is carried out after each period, after which the specific surface is determined. A good estimate of the grinding characteristics of the sample can be obtained by comparison of the specific surfaces with corresponding values for the reference material.

When the net power required has been determined, an allowance is made for mechanical losses. The gross power requirement thus arrived at, should with a satisfactory margin be utilised by the mill selected.

The critical speed of a rotating mill is the RPM at which a grinding medium will begin to centrifuge, namely will start rotating with the mill and therefore cease to carry out useful work. This will occur at an RPM of ncr, which may be determined by the formula

where D is the inside diameter in meters of the mill. Mills are driven in practice at a speed corresponding to 60-80% of the critical speed, the choice of speed being influenced by economical considerations. Within that range the power is nearly proportional to the speed.

The charge volume in the case of rod and ball mills is a measure of the proportion of the mill body that is filled by rods or balls. When the mill is stationary, raw material and liquid should fill the voids between the grinding media, in order that these should be fully utilized.

Maximum mill efficiency is reached at a charge volume of approximately 55%, but for a number of reasons 45-50% is seldom exceeded. The efficiency curve is in any case quite flat about the maximum. In overflow mills the charge volume is usually 40%, while there is a greater choice in the case of grate discharge mills.

For coarse grinding in rod mills, the rods used have a diameter of 50-100 mm and their lengths are approx. 150 mm below the effective inside shell length. Rods will break when they have been worn down to about 20 mm and broken rods must from time to time be taken out of the mill since otherwise they will reduce the mill capacity and may cause blockage through piling up. The first rod charge should also contain a number of rods of smaller diameter.

It may be necessary to charge the mill with rods of smaller diameter when fine grinding is to be carried out in a rod mill. Experience shows that the size of the grinding media should bear a definite relationship to the size of both the raw material and the finished product in order that optimum grinding may be achieved. The largest grinding media must be able to crush and grind the largest pieces of rock, while on the other hand the grinding media should be as small as possible since the total active surface increases in inverse proportion to the diameter.

A crushed mineral whose largest particles pass a screen with 25 x 25 mm apertures shall be ground to approx. 95% passing 0.1 mm in a 2.9 x 3.2 m ball mill of 35 ton charge weight. In accordance with Olewskis formula

Grinding media wear away because of the attrition they are subjected to in the course of the grinding operation, and in addition a continuous reduction in weight takes place owing to corrosion. The rate of wear will in the first place depend on the abrasive properties of the mineral being ground and naturally also on the hardness of the grinding media themselves.

The wear of rods and balls is usually quoted in grammes per ton of material processed (dry weight) and normal values may lie between 100 and 1500 g/ton. Considerably higher wear figures may however be experienced in fine wet grinding of e.g. very hard siliceous sand.

A somewhat more accurate way of expressing wear is to state the amount of gross kWh of grinding power required to consume 1 kg of grinding media. A normal value in wet grinding is 15 kWh/kg.The wear figures in dry grinding are only 10-30 % of the above.

where c is a constant which, inter alia, takes into consideration the mean slope a of the charge, W is the weight in kp of the charge n is the RPM Rg is the distance in metres of the centre of gravity from the mill centre

W for rod and ball mills shall be taken as the weight of the rod or ball charge, i.e. the weight of the pulp is to be ignored. For pebble mills therefore W is to be calculated on the basis of the bulk weight of the pebbles.

It should be pointed out that factor c in the formula is a function of both the shape of the inner lining (lifter height etc.) and the RPM. The formula is however valid with sufficient accuracy for normal speeds and types of lining.

The diagram gives the values of the quantity Rg/d as a function of the charge volume, the assumption being that the charge has a plane surface and is homogeneous, d is the inside diameter of the mill in metres. The variation of the quantity a/d, where a is the distance between the surface of the charge and the mill centre, is also shown in the same figure.

In order to keep manufacturing costs at a minimum level, Morgardshammar has a series of standard mill diameters up to and including 6.5 m. Shell length, however, can be varied and tailor made for each application. The sizes selected are shown on the tables on page 12-13 and cover the power range of 200-5000 kW.

Shells with a diameter of up to about 4 m are made in one piece. Above this dimension, the shell is divided into a number of identical pieces, bolted together at site, in order to facilitate the transport. The shell is rolled and welded from steel plate and is fitted with welded flanges of the same material. The flanges are machined in order to provide them with locating surfaces fitting into the respective heads. The shells of ball and pebble mills are provided with 2 manholes with closely fitting covers. The shells have drilled holes for different types of linings.

Heads with a diameter of up to about 4 m are integral cast with the trunnion in one piece. Above this diameter the trunnion is made as a separate part bolted to the head. The head can then be divided in 2 or 4 pieces for easy transport and the pieces are bolted together at site. The material is cast steel or nodular iron. The heads and the trunnions have drilled holes for the lining.

Spherical roller (antifriction) bearings are normally used. They offer the most modern and reliable technology and have been used for many years. They are delivered with housings in a new design with ample labyrinth seals.

For very large trunnions or heavy mills, i.e. for primary autogenous grinding mills. Morgardshammar uses hydrostatic shoe bearings. They have many of the same advantages as roller bearings. They work with circulating oil under pressure.

The spherical roller bearing and the hydrostatic shoe bearing take a very limited axial space compared to a conventional sleeve bearing. This means that the lever of the bearing load is short. Furthermore, the bending moment on the head is small and as a result of this, the stress and deformation of the head are reduced. Ask Morgardshammar for special literature on trunnion bearings.

Ring gears are often supplied with spur gears. They are always split in 2 or 4 pieces in order to facilitate the assembly. Furthermore, they are symmetrical and can be turned round in order to make use of both tooth flanks. The material is cast steel or nodular iron. They are designed in accordance with AGMA.The ring gear may be mounted on either the feed or the discharge head. It is fitted with a welded plate guard.

The pinion and the counter shaft are integral forged and heat treated of high quality steel. For mill power exceeding about 2500 kW two pinions are used, one on each side of the mill (double-drive). The pinion is supported on two spherical roller bearings.

The trunnion bearings are lubricated by means of a small motor- driven grease lubricator. The gear ring is lubricated through a spray lubricating system, connected to the electric and pneumatic lines. The spray nozzles are mounted on a panel on the gear ring guard.

In order to protect the parts of the mill that come into contact with the material being ground, a replaceable lining of wear-resistant material is fitted. This may take the form of unalloyed or alloyed rolled or cast steel, heat treated if required, or rubber of the appropriate wear resistant quality. White cast iron, unalloyed or alloyed with nickel (Ni-hard), may also be used.

The shape of the mill lining is often of Lorain-type, consisting of plates held in place between lifter bars (or key bars) of suitable height bolted on to the shell. This system is used i.e. of all well-known manufacturers of rubber linings. Ball mills and autogenous mills with metal lining also can be provided with single or double waved plates without lifter bars.

In grate discharge mills the grate and the discharge lifters are a part of the lining. The grate plates with tapered slots or holes are of metal or rubber design. The discharge lifters are fabricated steel with thick rubber coating. Rubber layer for metal linings and heavy corner pieces of rubber are included in a Morgardshammar delivery as well as attaching bolts, washers, seal rings, and self-locking nuts. A Morgardshammar overflow mill can be converted into a grate discharge mill only by changing some liner parts and without any change of the mill. Trunnion liners are rubber coated fabricated steel or cast steel. In grate discharge mills the center cone and the trunnion liner form one piece.

Scoop feeders in combination with drum feeders are used when retaining oversize from a spiral or rake classifier. As hydrocyclones are used in most closed grinding circuits the spout feeders are used most frequently.

Vibrating feeders or screw feeders are used when charging feed to dry grinding mills. Trommel screens are used to protect slurry pumps and other transport equipment from tramp iron. Screens can have perforated rubber sheets or wire mesh. The trommel screens are bolted to the discharge trunnion lining.

Inching units for slow rotation of the mills are also furnished. Rods to the rod mills are charged by means of manual or automatic rod charges. Erection cradles on hydraulic jacks are used when erecting medium or big size mills at site.

A symbol of dependable quality ore milling machinery manufacturing, industrial and mining equipment, ball mills and rod mills as well as supplies created for your specific needs. During this period thousands of operators have experienced continuous economical and unequalled service through their use.As anindustrial ball mill manufacturer and supplier, we havecontinuously accumulated knowledge on grinding applications. It has contributed greatly to the grinding process through the development and improvement of such equipment.

Just what is grinding? It is the reduction of lump solid materials to smaller particles by the application of shearing forces, pressure, attrition, impact and abrasion. The primary consideration, then, has been to develop some mechanical means for applying these forces. The modern grinding mill applies power to rotate the mill shell and thus transmits energy to some form of media which, in turn, fractures individual particles.

Through constant and extensive research, in the field of grinding as well as in the field of manufacturing. Constantly changing conditions provide a challenge for the future. Meeting this challenge keeps our company young and progressive. This progressive spirit, with the knowledge gained through the years, assures top quality equipment for the users of our mills.

You are urged to study the following pages which present a detailed picture of our facilities and discuss the technical aspects of grinding. You will find this data helpful when considering the selection of the grinding equipment.

It is quite understandable that wetakes pride in the quality of our mills.Complementing the human craftsmanship built into these mills, our plants are equipped with modern machines of advanced design which permit accurate manufacturing of each constituent part. Competent supervision encourages close inspection of each mill both as to quality and proper fabrication. Each mill produced is assured of meeting the high required standards. New and higher speed machines have replaced former pieces of equipment to provide up-to-date procedures. The use of high speed cutting and drilling tools has stepped up production, thereby reducing costs and permitting us to add other refinements and pass these savings on to you, the consumer.

Each foundry heat is checked metallurgically prior to pouring. All first castings of any new design are carefully examined by the use of an X-ray machine to be certain of uniformity of structure. The X -ray is also used to check welding work, mill heads, and other castings.

Each Mills, regardless of size, is designed to meet the specific grinding conditions under which it will be used. The speed of the mill type of liner, discharge arrangement, size of feeder, size of bearings, mill diameter and length, and other factors are all considered to take care of the size of feed, tonnage, circulating sand load, selection of balls or rods, and the final size of grind.

All Mills are built with jigs and templates so that any part may be duplicated. A full set of detailed drawings is made for each mill and its parts. This record is kept up to date during the life of the mill. This assures accurate duplication for the replacement of wearing parts during the future years.

As a part of our service our staff includes experienced engineers, trained in the field of metallurgy with special emphasis on grinding work. This knowledge, as well as a background gained from intimate contact with various operating companies throughout the world, provides a sound basis for consultation on your grinding problems. We take pride in manufacturing rod mills and ball millsfor the metallurgical, rock products, cement, process, and chemical industries.

As an additional service we offer our testing laboratories to check your material for grindability. Since all grinding problems are different some basis must be established for recommending the size and type of grinding equipment required. Experience plays a great part in this phase however, to establish more direct relationships it is often essential to conduct individual grindability tests on the specific material involved. To do this we have established certain definite procedures of laboratory grinding work to correlate data obtained on any new specific material for comparison against certain standards. Such standards have been established from conducting similar work on material which is actually being ground in Mills throughout the world. The correlation between the results we obtain in our laboratory against these standards, coupled with the broad experience and our companys background, insures the proper selection and recommendation of the required grinding equipment.

When selecting a grinding mill there are many factors to be taken into consideration. First let us consider just what constitutes a grinding mill. Essentially it is a revolving, cylindrical shaded machine, the internal volume of which is approximately one-half filled with some form of grinding media such as steel balls, rods or non-ferrous pebbles.

Feed may be classified as hard, average or soft. It may be tough, brittle, spongy, or ductile. It may have a high specific gravity or a low specific gravity. The desired product from a mill may range in size from a 4 mesh down to 200 mesh, or into the fine micron sizes. For each of these properties a different mill would be indicated.

The Mill has been designed to carry out specific grinding work requirements with emphasis on economic factors. Consideration has been given to minimizing shut-down time and to provide long, dependable trouble-free operation. Wherever wear takes place renewable parts have been designed to provide maximum life. A Mill, given proper care, will last indefinitely.

Mills have been manufactured in a wide variety of sizes ranging from laboratory units to mills 12 in diameter, with any suitable length. Each of these mills, based on the principles of grinding, provides the most economical grinding apparatus.

For a number of years ball mill grinding was the only step in size reduction between crushing and subsequent treatment. Subsequently smaller rod mills have altered this situation, providing in some instances a more economical means of size reduction in the coarser fractions. The principal field of rod mill usage is the preparation of products in the 4-mesh to 35-mesh range. Under some conditions it may be recommended for grinding to about 48 mesh. Within these limits a rod mill is often superior to and more efficient than a ball mill. It is frequently used for such size reduction followed by ball milling to produce a finished fine grind. It makes a product uniform in size with only a minimum amount of tramp oversize.

The basic principle by which grinding is done is reduction by line contact between rods extending the full length of the mill. Such line contact results in selective grinding carried out on the largest particle sizes. As a result of this selective grinding work the inherent tendency is to make size reduction with the minimum production of extreme fines or slimes.

The small rod mill has been found advantageous for use as a fine crusher on damp or sticky materials. Under wet grinding conditions this feed characteristic has no drawback for rod milling whereas under crushing conditions those characteristics do cause difficulty. This asset is of particular importance in the manufacture of sand, brick, or lime where such material is ground and mixed with just sufficient water to dampen, but not to produce a pulp. The rod mill has been extensively used for the reduction of coke breeze in the 8-mesh to 20-mesh size range containing about 10% moisture to be used for sintering ores.

Grinding by use of nearly spherical shaped grinding media is termed ball milling. Strictly speaking, such media are made of steel or iron. When iron contamination is detrimental, porcelain or natural non-metallic materials are used and are referred to as pebbles. When ore particles are used as grinding media this is known as autogenous grinding.

Other shapes of media such as short cylinders, cubes, cones, or irregular shapes have been used for grinding work but today the nearly true spherical shape is predominant and has been found to provide the most economic form.

In contrast to rod milling the grinding action results from point contact rather than line contact. Such point contacts take place between the balls and the shell liners, and between the individual balls themselves. The material at those points of contact is ground to extremely fine sizes. The present day practice in ball milling is generally to reduce material to 35 mesh or finer. Grinding in a ball mill is not selective as it is in a rod mill and as a result more extreme fines and tramp oversize are produced.

Small Ball mills are generally recommended not only for single stage fine grinding but also have wide application in regrind work. The Small Ball millwith its low pulp level is especially adapted to single stage grinding as evidenced by hundreds of installations throughout the world. There are many applications in specialized industrial work for either continuous or batch grinding.

Wet grinding may be considered as the grinding of material in the presence of water or other liquids in sufficient quantity to produce a fluid pulp (generally 60% to 80% solids). Dry grinding on the other hand is carried out where moisture is restricted to a very limited amount (generally less than 5%). Most materials may be ground by use of either method in either ball mills or rod mills. Selection is determined by the condition of feed to the mill and the requirements of the ground product for subsequent treatment. When grinding dry some provision must be made to permit material to flow through the mill. Mills provide this necessary gradient from the point of feeding to point of discharge and thereby expedites flow.

The fineness to which material must be ground is determined by the individual material and the subsequent treatment of that ground material Where actual physical separation of constituent particles is to be realized grinding must be carried to the fineness where the individual components are separated. Some materials are liberated in coarse sizes whereas others are not liberated until extremely fine sizes are reached.

Occasionally a sufficient amount of valuable particles are liberated in coarser sizes to justify separate treatment at that grind. This treatment is usually followed by regrinding for further liberation. Where chemical treatment is involved, the reaction between a solid and a liquid, or a solid and a gas, will generally proceed more rapidly as the particle sizes are reduced. The point of most rapid and economical change would determine the fineness of grind required.

Laboratory examinations and grinding tests on specific materials should be conducted to determine not only the fineness of grind required, but also to indicate the size of commercial equipment to handle any specific problem.

important operation tips for cement vertical mill

important operation tips for cement vertical mill

Regardless of Rotary kiln operation or grinding, it is necessary to clarify the inherent logical relationship of the system, which requires the operator to have a clear understanding of the characteristics of the system process and equipment.fully understand the dialectical relationship between qualitative and quantitative.

Operator must first learn about the operation of the system.Which equipment has hidden dangers, and how does production influence on cement quality.Read the full analysis report sheet to understand the material's grindability so that targeted control can be achieved.It is necessary to familiarize yourself with the operation interface of the central control and know the field equipment very well, so you should always go to the site to understand the situation of the equipment.Especially when the field device fails, you need to know the cause of the failure and the method to solve the problem.

The proper thickness of the layer and stable layer are basis for stable operation. The material layer is too thick will lead to grinding efficiency reduction, and when pressure difference of the mill reaches the limit, the material will collapse, which will affect main motor and venting system; If material layer is too thin, with driving force of the mill increases, the grinding roller, disc and hydraulic system are damaged.

Excessive vibration of the vertical mill not only directly causes mechanical damage, but also affects production and quality.The factors that cause vibration are: the basis of the mill, the grinding pressure, the thickness of the layer, the air volume and the air temperature, the accumulator pressure, the wear of the roller surface or the grinding disc, and the like.

The influence of materials on vertical mill vibration and the treatment method: it is mainly reflected in the particle size, the wearability and the moisture. In the vertical grinding operation process, to form a stable material layer, it is required that the grinding material has a suitable gradation, and more than 95% of the particle size is less than 3% of the roller diameter. Excessive feed size will result in poor grindability. Since the gap between the bulk materials is not filled with enough fine particulate material, the buffering performance of the material bed is poor, and the impact force when the material is crushed is difficult to absorb, resulting in an increase in vibration. The feed size is too small, especially when the powdery material is long, because the small particle material has small friction and good fluidity. The lack of large materials constitutes a supporting skeleton, and it is difficult to form a stable material bed. The grinding roller can not be effectively pressed and crushed. A large amount of powdery material will increase the dust concentration and ventilation resistance in the airflow. When the limit is reached, the material will collapse and mill vibration will increase.

When the material is too fine, especially when the internal pressure difference of the vertical mill has risen significantly, the feeding should be adjusted in time, grinding pressure and outlet temperature should be reduced and the water spray amount should be increased, powder separator speed should be appropriately reduced. The grinding pressure is increased under the premise of ensuring stable pressure difference and layer thickness.

Material grindability is an important factor affecting the yield. When material grindability deteriorates, grinding cycles number of vertical mill increases significantly. Since most of the material is crushed into fine powder, but it can not meet the requirements of the finished product, it cannot be taken out of the mill by the airflow. As the fine particle material on the grinding disc increases, there will be a situation similar to the fineness of the feed size. Vertical grinding pressure The difference is increased, the ventilation is not smooth, and the external circulation and internal circulation are greatly increased. At this time, the material layer will become extremely unstable, the load of the powder separator will increase, the thickness of the material layer will increase, and the load of the mill will increase. If it is not treated in time, the vibration of the vertical mill will be further aggravated and the main motor will be overcurrent.

The influence of material moisture on the vibration of the mill can not be ignored. If the moisture content of the material is too low, it is difficult for the dried material to reliably form a stable bed on the grinding disc, which inevitably causes the mill to vibrate. When the moisture is too high and the layer on the grinding disc is too low, it is easy to form a cake, which increases the vibration of the mill. For example, in order to meet the material drying requirements, it is necessary to provide a larger air volume and a higher air temperature, which will make the wind speed in the mill higher, and the material that should be settled and dropped is forced to suspend, the external circulation is reduced and the internal circulation is increased. At the same time, due to the high adhesion of the high moisture material, the thickness of the upper layer of the grinding disc is thickened, which increases the chance of collapse and the balance of the bed.

The accumulator mainly provides cushioning for the lifting of the roller set. If the pressure of the accumulator is too high or the nitrogen balloon is broken, the buffering effect will be reduced or even completely lost, resulting in a hard impact of the grinding roller group and the material bed causing severe vibration of the mill.

The vertical grinding water spray system plays an important role in stabilizing the material bed, especially in the case of more powdery materials or low water content in the raw materials, the effect is more obvious, the toughness and rigidity of the material can be increased, and the material grinding is facilitated, protect the roller surface and the grinding disc. The height of the retaining ring determines the maximum thickness of material bed. When the retaining ring is too low, the material layer as the cushion is thinned, the buffering effect is weakened, and the grinding machine will vibrate, and the high ring will cause grinding. Reduced efficiency, reduced production and increased electricity consumption. Excessive wear of the scraper plate, uneven wear of the guide vane and the wind deflector will cause uneven distribution of the air volume in the wind ring and the mill, resulting in different thickness of the material on the grinding disc, causing vibration. Excessive or too low temperature in the mill can lead to damage to the stability of the layer, especially when the temperature is too high, the material on the disc becomes very loose and easy to flow. Not only the material layer is thinned, but also it is not easily crushed by the grinding roller, causing vibration. If the temperature is too low, the material has poor fluidity and is easy to accumulate on the grinding disc, which will result in thickening of the material layer and a decrease in grinding efficiency.

Grinding pressure is the main factor affecting the quality of production. The grinding pressure is adjusted according to the amount of grinding machine feed, material size and easy grinding.In order to maintain a layer of material with a certain thickness on the grinding disc, reduce the vibration of the mill and ensure stable operation, the pressure of the grinding roller must be controlled.When the grinding pressure is increased, the grinding capacity of the mill is increased, but after reaching a certain critical point, it does not change.If the hydraulic cylinder setting pressure is too high, it will only increase the driving force and accelerate the wear of the components, and will not improve the grinding ability.This feature is similar to the working principle of a roller press.However, some manufacturers reduce the maximum value of the grinding pressure when setting the maximum grinding pressure, taking into account the protection equipment.When the grinding pressure is low, the thickness of the layer increases, the current of the main motor increases, the pressure difference within the mill increases, and the vibration of the mill increases.When the grinding pressure is high, the thickness of the layer decreases and the current of the main motor increases.The vibration speed of the mill increases and the component damage is accelerated.So maintaining a proper grinding pressure is a critical operation.

When the temperature of the outlet gas of the mill is too low, the fluidity of the material will be deteriorated, and the qualified finished product cannot be extracted in time. When the pressure difference in the mill is too high, the material will collapse.The method of raising the temperature includes: increasing the suction of the mill, adjusting the fineness by the classifier; increasing the opening of the hot damper to reduce the opening of the circulating wind.These methods are also applicable to other types of raw material mills.However, if the temperature is too high (above 130 C), it will also cause damage to the equipment.The dividing wheel in the lower part of the cyclone will expand and become stuck, and the lubricating grease of the grinding roller will also be cracked.It is also disadvantageous for the tail dust bag.If there is too much powder on the grinding disc, the thickness of the layer will be unstable, so it is necessary to control the outlet temperature of the mill.Each mill has its own adaptation temperature, and the operator must master it during operation.For safety reasons, it is best not to close the inlet damper into the humidification tower during production.

The system air volume must be matched with the feeding amount. The method of adjusting the air volume can generally be controlled by adjusting the power of the mill circulating fan or adjusting the opening degree of the kiln exhaust fan.The wind is going big.When the system air volume is too large, the internal pressure difference decreases, the main motor current decreases; the thickness of the material layer is too low, the vibration value is large, and the sieve residue increases.When the system air volume is too small, the thickness of the material layer increases, the internal pressure difference increases, the main motor current increases, and the vibration of the mill increases.

Feeding is large and satiety is a major cause.However, when the material is poor in wearability, it will also slag.The size of the grinding material is large, the system air volume is insufficient, the grinding pressure is low, the system leaks air, the material layer is unstable, the material ring is low, and the roller surface or the grinding disc wears seriously, which will cause the grinding machine to slag more.

When the raw material is running in the vertical mill, the drying heat source of the material comes from the hot gas at the kiln tail. Therefore, when the vertical mill is operated, the control of the inlet and outlet dampers should be balanced by the kiln mill.When the vertical mill inlet and outlet dampers are balanced, the system's wind will be balanced and will not affect the pressure at the kiln end.

Before the grinding starts, it is necessary to stack enough material on the grinding disc so that when the grinding roller falls and grinds, it will not stop due to high vibration.However, the material layer should not be too high, otherwise the main motor current will be high when the roll is ground, which is unfavorable to the equipment.The air pressure at the nozzle ring before grinding is a key value for the observation level.The situation of each vertical mill is different, and it must be reasonably controlled according to circumstances.Try to increase the ventilation before stopping the machine to make the fine powder into the reservoir as much as possible.If the fine powder is excessively rolled, the vibration of the mill is large.

wet grid ball mill

wet grid ball mill

Grid ball mill is widely used in smashing all kinds of ores and other materials, ore dressing and national economic departments like building and chemical industries etc. The size of ore shall not exceed 65mm and the best feed size is under 6mm. The effect in this job is better than coarse grinding. Grid ball mill consists of the shell, feeding part, discharging part, main bearing, lubricating system, driving system and other parts. There is wearing a liner inside the shell, and both ends of the shell are provided with a flange. The end cover of the mill is connected with the flange plate. The feeding part consists of the head, trunnion and feeding device. The discharge part includes the grid plate, head, and discharge trunnion.

Wet Grid ball mill is mainly used for mixing and grinding materials in two types: dry grinding and wet grinding .It has advantages of fineness uniformity and power saving. The machine uses different types of liner to meet different customer needs. The grinding fineness of material can be controlled by grinding time. The electro-hydraulic machine is auto-coupled and decompressed to reduce the starting current, and its structure is divided into integral type and independent type.

Compared with similar products,Wet Grid ball mill has the characteristics of low investment, low energy consumption, novel structure, simple operation, stable and reliable performance. It is suitable for mixing and grinding ordinary and special materials. The users can choose the right type, liner and medium type by considering the specific gravity, hardness, yield and other factors. The grinding medium is Wet Grid ball.

1.The ball mill is composed of a horizontal cylinder, a hollow shaft for feeding and discharging, and a grinding head. The main body is a long cylinder made of steel. The cylinder is provided with an abrasive body, and the steel lining plate is fixed to the cylinder body. The grinding body is generally a steel ball and is loaded into the cylinder according to different diameters and a certain proportion, and the grinding body can also be used with a steel section.

2.According to the particle size of the grinding material, the material is loaded into the cylinder by the hollow shaft of the wet grid ball mill feeding end. When the ball mill cylinder rotates, the grinding body acts on the cylinder liner due to the action of inertia and centrifugal force and friction. It is carried away by the cylinder. When it is brought to a certain height, it is thrown off due to its own gravity. The falling abrasive body crushes the material in the cylinder like a projectile.

3.The material is uniformly fed into the first chamber of the mill by the feeding device through the hollow shaft of the feeding material. The chamber has a step liner or a corrugated liner, and various steel balls are loaded therein. The rotation of the cylinder generates centrifugal force to bring the steel ball to a certain extent. The height drops and then hits and grinds the material. After the material reaches the rough grinding in the first bin, it enters the second bin through the single-layer partition plate. The bin is embedded with a flat liner with steel balls inside to further grind the material. The powder is discharged through the discharge raft to complete the grinding operation.

The main function of the steel ball in the ball mill is to impact crush the material and also play a certain grinding effect. Therefore, the purpose of grading steel balls is to meet the requirements of these two aspects. The quality of the crushing effect directly affects the grinding efficiency, and ultimately affects the output of the ball mill. Whether the crushing requirement can be achieved depends on whether the grading of the steel ball is reasonable, mainly including the size of the steel ball, the number of ball diameters, and the ball of various specifications. Proportion and so on.

The ball mill is composed of the main part such as a feeding part, a discharging part, a turning part, a transmission part (a reduction gear, a small transmission gear, a motor, and electric control). The hollow shaft is made of cast steel, the inner lining can be replaced, the rotary large gear is processed by casting hobbing, and the barrel is embedded with wear-resistant lining, which has good wear resistance. The machine runs smoothly and works reliably.

Ball mill is the key equipment for secondary grinding after crushing. And it is suitable for grinding all kinds of ores and other materials, no matter wet grinding or dry grinding. Besides, it is mainly applied in many industries, such as ferrous&non-ferrous metal mine, coal, traffic, light industry, etc.

The Ball mill can be divided into lattice type and overflow type according to different beneficiation methods, and this machine is two lattice-type ball mill. The materials from the feeding fittings enter the first bin of the milling machine via the feeding hollow axis evenly when it works. There is a ladder-like or ripple-like scaleboard in the first bin, and different specification steel balls are installed in the bin. When the cylinder rotates, which generating centrifugal force to carries steel balls to a certain height and then balls fall to strike and grind the material. After primary grinding in the first bin, the material then enters into the second bin via a single layer partition board. There is a scaleboard and steel balls in the second bin, so the materials are further ground. In the end, the powder is discharged by output material board.

[Improvement]: The jack-up device adopts the hydraulic jack-up device independently developed by Xinhai. When the ball mill is in maintenance, only handling the hydraulic station can make the hydraulic jack rise and fall. Compared with the ordinary jack-up device, Xinhai jack-up device is simple, convenient and easy to operate with lower maintenance costs.

The main component is a cylinder with diameter and length at a reasonable proportion. Driven by the transmission device, the cylinder rotates with the materials fed from the cylinder inlet and crushed by the falling impacts and autogenous grinding of the steel balls and ores in the cylinder. Due to the continuously feeding materials, the pressure pushes materials to the outlet and the grinded materials are discharged from the cylinder outlet. Qualified materials flow from the cylinder outlet. In wet grinding, the materials are taken out by the water flow.

You decide whether to operate the mill in open or closed circuit, with or without a pre-grinder and with side or central drive, according to your plant layout and end product specifications. Even the lining types are tailored to your operating parameters.

In addition, the large through-flow areas enable the mill to operate with large volumes of venting air and a low pressure drop across the mill. This reduces the energy consumption of the mill ventilation fan and keeps your energy costs down.

The mill is based on standard modules and can be adapted to your plant layout, end product specifications and drive type. The horizontal slide shoe bearing design enables much simpler foundations and reduced installation height, making installation quicker and less expensive.

Our shell linings are designed to suit the task at hand. In our two-compartment cement mills, the first compartment (for coarse grinding) has a step lining suitable for large grinding media. It protects the shell while ensuring optimum lifting of the mill charge. In the second compartment (and also in our one-compartment cement mills) we use a corrugated lining designed to obtain the maximum power absorption and grinding efficiency. For special applications, we can supply a classifying shell lining for fine grinding in the mill.

In fact, the entire mill is protected with bolted on lining plates designed for the specific wear faced by each part of the mill. This attention to detail ensures both minimal wear and easy maintenance. When a wear part has reached the end of its life, it is easily replaced.

The grinding media are supplied in various sizes to ensure optimum grinding efficiency. The STANEX diaphragm is designed to maximise the effective grinding area, enabling a higher throughput. It is fitted with adjustable lifters to ensure the material levels in each compartment are right. Best of all, the STANEX diaphragm works for all applications, even when material flow rates are high and the mill feed is moist.

The mills are typically driven by our FLSmidth MAAG LGDX side drive - gearing rated to the latest proven AGMA standards. The mill drive is provided with an auxiliary drive for slow turning of the mill. The LGDX includes two independent lubrication systems, one which services the girth gear guard and intakes more dust, and a second which supplies oil for the fast-rotating gearing and bearings and stays clean. If requested, however, the mills can be provided with a central drive: the FLSmidth MAAG CPU planetary gearbox. The mill design differs slightly, depending on whether the side or central drive is chosen.

Each grinding compartment has two man-hole covers to give easy access for maintenance. As there are minimal moving parts, the maintenance requirement is low and simple changes like replacing wear linings and topping up grinding media can be completed quickly and easily. Horizontal slide shoe bearings prevent oil spillages from the casing and offers easy replacement of slide shoes.

Buying a new mill is a huge investment. With over a century of ball mill experience and more than 4000 installations worldwide, rest assured we have the expertise to deliver the right solution for your project. Our ball mill is based on standard modules and the highly flexible design can be adapted to your requirements. The mill comprises the following parts.

The mill body consists of an all-welded mill shell and a T-sectional welded-up slide ring at either end, the cylindrical part of which is welded onto the ends of the shell. The mill shell has four manholes, two for each grinding compartment.

Each slide ring runs in a bearing with two self-aligning and hydrodynamically lubricated slide shoes. One of the slide shoes at the drive end holds the mill in axial direction. In the others, the slide rings can move freely in axial direction to allow for longitudinal thermal expansion and contraction of the mill body.

The slide shoes are water-cooled, and each bearing is provided with a panel-enclosed lubrication unit including oil tank, motorised low- and high-pressure oil pumps, as well as an oil conditioning circuit with motorised pump for heating/cooling and filtration of the oil.

The stationary steel plate inlet duct leads the venting air into the mill. It is equipped with a manually operated throttle valve and a pressure monitor to adjust the pressure at the inlet end, thus preventing dust emission from the inlet. The feed chute is lined with bolted-on wear plates and slopes down through the air duct to the mill inlet opening.

The more control you have over the mill, the better your grinding efficiency is likely to be. Our ball mills include monitoring systems to continuously measure the material and air temperatures as well as the pressure at the mill exit. The venting of the mill is adjusted by a damper in the inlet to the mill fan. And the material fill level is continuously monitored by means of sensors. For ball mills operating in closed circuit, the circulation load is monitored by weighing the flow of reject material from the separator. These measures ensure you achieve optimum mill performance, giving you the quality, efficiency, safetyand reliability that you need.
