Analysis of Power Draw in Ball Mills by the Discrete ...

Abstract Ball mills, like other comminution devices, consume large amounts of energy. Mill operators often have to assess the power draft of mills for an entirely different set of operating conditions or for a reconfigured circuit. It is shown that the power draft can be accurately predicted from analysis of the motion of the charge. The motion of the charge is rigorously simulated with a ...

This observation is supported by the data from Discrete Element Method (DEM) [4, 15], which shows that the impact frequency inside the mill depends on the level of energy applied. Due to lack of appropriate data on fracture energies of various mineral ore rocks, the size dependent rate of particle fracture shall be adopted in our model.

A brea-kage rate model was also developed for correlating liner profile to mill perfor-mance. The obtained result revealed that the combination of the prediction of liner profile and grinding ...

Particle breakage with contact-based Energy Spectra - Rocky

Quite often DEM users are interested in predicting particle breakage, either to promote it (for example, spending less energy in comminution processes) or to avoid it (such as preventing tablet break-in coating processes).. Although it is possible to simulate particle breakage in Rocky, you can drastically decrease the computational cost by using another Rocky tool: Energy Spectra.

MEI's Barry Wills: Report on Computational Modelling '19

The grinding media was modelled with the DEM, the pulp fluid flow using the ICFD and the mill structure using the FEM. The combined model was used to predict the wear rate in the system. The model can be used to study process parameters and their effect on the wear map distribution and power consumption.

Wear of grinding mill liners and lifters plays a major role in the overall efficiency and economics of mineral processing. Change in the shape of lifters as they wear has a significant influence on grinding efficiency, and the annual cost of maintenance and mill down-time depends on the life of both liners and lifters. The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is a computational method for simulating ...

A numerical framework to predict the three-dimensional evolution of the liner profile within a rotating industrial SAG mill is presented. The need to understand the manner in which the lifter profile develops is emphasised by comparing two discrete element method (DEM) simulations with measured new (i.e. unworn) and worn lifter profiles. The DEM informs the subsequent wear model as to the ...

Optimization of mill performance by using

Studying the complete evolution of the media angle (βynamic) through the liner lifetime can lead to an improved liner design. However, the example of liner design and grinding efficiency uses the media charge angle only. Other examples will explore the interaction between the pulp and the media load. Influence of slurry properties and load ...
