STIRRED MILLING TECHNOLOGY Mill structure The vertical stirred media grinding mill uses a grinding chamber filled with small beads whereby comminution takes place by attrition between the beads. The stirring effect is caused by rotating discs mounted on a shaft. There are also stationary discs on the mill body positioned in between each


Regarding stirred mills, the two issues you haven't touched on are they can be a pain in the butt to do maintenance on (you have to dump the mill contents of the floor which you don't do with a tumbling mill) and sometimes they have issues with the top size of material that comes from upstream stages (you need to match the media size in a ...

two proposed comminution circuits, including an HPGR - ball mill circuit and a novel HPGR - stirred mill circuit. The main objective of this research was to advance the understanding of the potential benefits of the proposed HPGR stirred mill-based comminution circuits for low-grade, high - tonnage base metal operation.


Thus, stirred mills have been preferred for fine, ultra-fine and regrinding operations. ... Predicting the product particle size distribution from a laboratory vertical stirred mill.


While applications of stirred media mills for fine particle production have continued to grow, there is a lack of understanding of power requirements, optimum operating conditions and powder (product) characteristics underlying stirred media milling processes. To develop a physical understanding of stirred mill dynamics and scale-up principles, and to identify conditions and …


Stirred mills are becoming recognized by the industry as a more efficient technology selection compared to the ball mill for fine grinding (< 100 µm). The increasing number of stirred mill installations in mineral processing concentrators has necessitated a

Generally, stirred mills can be divided into two categories; namely, gravity-induced and fluidized charge mills. Commercially active brand names for the gravity induced variety are the VERTIMILL™ (VTM™) and the Nippion-Eirich tower mill. The fluidized stirred mill brands are represented by the Stirred Media Detritor (SMD ...


CFD MODELLING OF A STIRRED BEAD MILL FOR FINE GRINDING Graeme L. LANE CSIRO Minerals, Box 312, Clayton Sth, Victoria 3169 AUSTRALIA ABSTRACT Stirred bead mills find application in a number of industries where there is a need for very fine grinding or particle dispersion. In the minerals industry this type of


Through re-grinding with the stirred mill followed by a two-stage cleaning flotation process, a low-grade graphite concentrate containing 84.59% fixed carbon could be refined to a high-quality ...


Stirred mill technology dates back to 1928 where the idea to use "an agitator and spherical grinding media" was presented (Stehr, 1988). The year 1948 saw the successful application of Du Pont's "sand mill" for pigment grinding. Subsequent years have led to the development of different types of


The power consumption of stirred-media mills was studied using an approach developed from work on stirred reactors. Evaluated were the relationships of factors such as stirring speed and impeller and tank dimensions on the torque required to rotate disc and pin impellers immersed in dense particulate media. Data collected under various experimental …


The stirred mills are charged with a media size of 10–12 mm and operated at a maximum tip speed of 3–8 m/s. The detritor mill, however, has a maximum tip speed of 11–12 m/s. Even though a finer ground product is obtained with higher speeds, a limit has to be imposed. This is to allow the separation of media and mineral particles at ...

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.

The basic stirred mill consists of a grinding chamber filled with some grinding media (such as steel balls). The mill shell is stationary and the media are set into motion by the action of a motor-driven internal impeller (or stirred agitator). Most mills can typically operate with dry or wet feeds, but wet grinding is generally more efficient ...
