Rudimentary ball mill startup
This is a traditional Tanzanian ball mill that operates on a diesel engine in dry mode. However, we intend to convert it to a wet mode using water for faster grinding. The mill has a length of 81 cm, an outer diameter of 94 cm, and a wall thickness of 4 mm. It runs on approximately 1 liter of fuel per hour.
The mill can be found on either a concrete foundation or sometimes on timber. Its cylinder has a volume of 0.56 cubic meters based on a radius of 0.47 m and a height of 0.81 m. The mill has a capacity of 200 kilograms per hour, which is slightly over one hour of grinding time. The batch time is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
The mill operates at 47 rotations per minute (RPM). The critical speed for a ball mill with an inner diameter of 2.82 feet is 72.73 RPM. At 47 RPM, the mill runs at approximately 65% of the critical speed. The cost of this mill in Tanzania was approximately US $4,000 as of 2019.
Compared to this traditional ball mill, our impact rock mills are 20 times less expensive, mobile, and more efficient.
