In this paper the milling parameters of high energy ball mill (Fritsch Pulverisette 7) like vial geometry number and size of balls and speed of the mill were modelled and discussed Simulations through discrete element method (DEM) provide correlation between the milling parameters A mathematical model is used to improve and develop this process.
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.
ROCKY DEM is helping us to improve various processes The use of simulation tools can quantify the design improvements and gains this is advantageous because mining uses large equipment that without computer simulation can cost millions for prototype development and testing.
Vertical stirred mills have been widely applied in the minerals industry due to its greater efficiency in comparison with conventional tumbling mills In this context the agitator liner wear plays an important role in maintenance planning and operational costs In this paper we use the discrete element method (DEM) wear simulation to evaluate the screw liner wear.
