Monitoring the fill level of a ball mill using vibration sensing and artificial neural network …

 · Ball mills are extensively used in the size reduction process of different ores and minerals. The fill level inside a ball mill is a crucial parameter which needs to be monitored regularly for optimal operation of the ball mill. In this paper, a vibration monitoring-based method is proposed and tested for estimating the fill level inside a laboratory-scale ball mill. A vibration signal is ...

By using a vertical stirred ball mill as a representative example, the simulation capabilities of the DEM should be established on the one hand while on the other, the grinding process should be evaluated by the motion of the grinding media that is caused by the

[PDF] Simulation of the granular flow of grinding media inside a ball mill …

The ball mills are often applied in mineral processing, they are e.g. an important part of the cement industry. A key factor, which influences the milling process, is the granular flow of grinding media. The flow determines: energy consumption, time of milling and capacity; thus there is a need to describe the phenomenon. The discrete element method DEM is a computational method, which allows ...

Rocky DEM

 · A SAG mill simulation (Figure 3) was run in order to illustrate how to use the Contact Energy Spectra curves. A 1.9 m slice of a standard 11 m diameter SAG mill was used (typically applied for hard rock mineral processing). The rotational velocity of the mill is 9

Estimating energy in grinding using DEM modelling

 · The discrete element method (DEM) also allows numerical simulation of the dynamic interaction of the mill charge media with the mill liners and lifters (Powell et al., 2011). The calculations are based on the fundamental laws of motion and can take into account of the geometry, dimensions and material property of each individual steel ball, chunk of rock, mill liner, and lifters ( Mishra, 2003a ).

A deeper understanding of the milling operation of ball mills helps mineral processing engineers to control and optimize them, and therefore, reduce their consuming power. In this work, the milling operation of ball mills is investigated using two methods, i.e. DEM and combined DEM-SPH. First, a pilot scale ball mill with no lifter is simulated by both methods. Then another pilot scale ball ...

SAG mill wear optimization using DEM simulation

 · Stopping mill equipment is not a desirable alternative, so the best way to resolve SAG mill challenges is to use simulation technology for equipment design alterations. Replacing the SAG''s worn-out liner can occur every six to nine months and cost between $30,000 U.S. and $200,000 U.S. per hour, and each repair takes between 40 hours and 120 hours.

The discrete element method for the simulation of ball mills

 · The discrete element method (DEM) is a proven numerical technique for modelling the multibody collision behavior of particulate systems. This method is used here to study the motion of ball charge in tumbling mills. To get meaningful results, it is essential that the parameters involved in the model be carefully determined.
