Energy Efficiency Analysis of Copper Ore Ball Mill Drive
3. Analysis of Variant Ball Mill Drive Systems. The basic element of a ball mill is the drum, in which the milling process takes place ( Figure 1 ). The length of the drum in the analyzed mill (without the lining) is 3.6 m, and the internal diameter is 3.4 m. The mass of the drum without the grinding media is 84 Mg.
