MILL CONTROL: BALL MILL CONTROL EXAMPLE Process Description The copper concentrator in Pinto Valley, Arizona processes a 0.4% grade copper ore from a nearby open pit mine. The unit operations consisting of crushing, grinding, and flotation process about 65,000 tons of ore per day in six overflow ball mills.
1500t/d Continuous Ball Mill for Copper Mining in Pakistan. Production capacity: 1500t/d Processed material: Copper ore Input size: 25mm Equipment: 98 386t/h copper ball mill, jaw crusher, cone crusher, flotation machine, concentrator, filter press. Auxiliary equipment: Linear vibration screen, cyclone.
The Copper Mountain mill flowsheet is currently a conventional two stage crushing, SAG, pebble crusher, ball milling, and sulphide flotation circuit design. The current capacity supports 40,000 t per day of ore processing. The 45ktpd Expansion that is currently underway will add a third ball mill in parallel with the two existing ball mills.
Ball mills tumble iron or steel balls with the ore. The balls are initially 510 cm diameter but gradually wear away as grinding of the ore proceeds. The feed to ball mills is typically 75 vol. % ore and 25% steel. The ball mill is operated in closed circuit with a particle size measurement device and size control cyclones.
This ball mill is typically designed to grind mineral ores and other materials with different hardness, and it is widely used in different fields, such as ore dressing, building material field, chemical industry, etc. Due to the difference of its slurry discharging method, it is divided to two types: grid type ball mill and overflow type ball mill.
Ball mill is a key equipment for grinding materials. thus grinding ball mills are widely used in the mining beneficiation process, and it has a wide range of suitable grinding mineral and can works on wet and dry grinding processing. our JXSC39;s ball mills are perfectly used for ores such as gold, iron, zinc ore, copper, etc.
