Ball Mill Design/Power Calculation

The power consumption per short ton will only be correct for the specified size reduction when grinding wet in closed circuit. If the method of grinding is changed, power consumption also changes as follows: 1. Closed Circuit = W 2. Open Circuit, Product Top-size not limited = W 3. Open Circuit, Product Top-size limited = W to 1.25 W
