Stirred milling technologies have firmly established themselves in concentrator circuits as energy-efficient alternatives to tumbling ball mills. High and continued increases in electricity costs, coupled with the ever-increasing power consumption by primary grinding circuits due to declining head grades of ore-bodies, provides a compelling case for these technologies.

More2009-6-1 Stirred mills are primarily used for fine and ultra-fine grinding. They dominate these grinding applications because greater stress intensity can be delivered in stirred mills and they can achieve better energy efficiency than ball mills in fine and ultra-fine grinding.

More2015-3-10 The vertical roller mill equipped with an internal classifier is often said to be more energy efficient than tumbling mills working on the same material and the same size step (e.g. Gerold et al., 2012). It is long established in the cement industry and gains more and more importance in the industrial mineral and iron ore sectors.

MoreEnergy Efficient Gold Ball Mill Concentrator. comparison of energy efficiency between ball mills and,the work using a vertical shaft stirred mill compared with bond ball mill, both operated in closed circuit with a classifier, demonstrated a clear trend that on average 30% energy saving can be expected by using the stirred mill to replace ball mill for coarse grinding from a top particle size ...

More2006-7-21 Also, the ball chip generation from the SAG mill was reduced considerably. Further more, a 7% decrease in ball mill power draw from 4,843 HP to 4,491 HP (3,613 kW to 3,350 kW) was observed. This equates to a 24% decrease in ball mill unit energy consumption from 11.13 kWh/ton to 8.43 kWh/ton. «

More2021-6-16 Since heavy equipment retrofitting is the most costly approach, process optimization with dedicated models and control systems is the most preferable solution for energy consumption reduction. While the classic technological measurements in mineral processing are well adopted by the industry, nowadays research focuses on new methods of the mill’s internal dynamics analysis and control.

MoreIn fact, in four of the surveys, the SAG mill was found to be more efficient at producing circuit product than the ball mill. Similar results have been seen consistently across all the surveys where this approach has been used, including circuits with AG mills, pebble mills, HPGR, stirred mills and ball mills

More2021-6-4 A computational model for use with DEM (Discrete Element Method) is proposed for the five mechanisms applying to particle comminution in AG, SAG and coarse feed ball mills. Chipping and rounding are mechanisms that lead to preferential mass loss from corners and edges of particles and which produce shape change for the particles as well as size reduction.

The steel balls and rock are agitated by an internal auger that causes the contents to circulate, reducing the size of the rock particles.

MoreIn previous publications, we have described how the size specific energy (SSE) can be calculated to predict the energy required to generate new minus 75 µm material. However, if we want to benchmark the performance of fine grinding where the product can be much finer than 75 µm, clearly we require a finer marker size.
