The type of mill also is a factor as if it is an overflow mill (subject to the diameter of the discharge port) is usually up to about 40-45%. If it is a grate discharge you will have more flexibility of the total charge. Ball size and ball grade is determined by the feed ore size and hardness, plus the PH level of the slurry.

Suppose that once every week the mills are stopped and all balls less than 2 in. in diameter are removed. If the ball wear is 2 lb. per ton of ore crushed, this will amount to 720 lb. (326.5 kg.) per day for each mill.
Read MoreOvercharging results in poor grinding and losses due to abrasion of rods and liners. Undercharging also promotes more abrasion of the rods. The height (or depth) of charge is measured in the same manner as for ball mill. The size of feed particles to a rod mill is coarser than for a ball mill. The usual feed size ranges from 6 to 25 mm.
