Conditions Affecting Ball Mill Power. Power depends principally upon the weight of ball charge, an approximate figure being 9 to 10 hp. per ton. ... and whether a mill is run in closed or open circuit. The ball, consumption for mills delivering a coarse product, all passing 8-mesh- and containing 10 to 20 per cent. below 200-mesh, the mill ...

The polysius ® booster mill is an additional stage grinding solution, particularly efficient for finer grinding. Therefore, it enables customer to produce ultra-high performance cements or sustainable cements with a lower clinker factor without losing grinding capacity and gaining flexibility. The reduced specific power consumption, the ...

If P is less than 80% passing 70 microns, power consumption will be. Ball Mill Power Calculation Example. A wet grinding ball mill in closed circuit is to be fed 100 TPH of a material with a work ...

The results showed that at a constant mill filling, the power draw was changed with changing the ball size distribution and for all mill fillings the maximum power draw occurred when the fraction ...
