Ball Mill Optimization

Business Problem

Mills consume a lot of energy, and it is challenging to achieve the right quality, quantity and uniformity of output.

Challenge

The control system must maintain the correct rotational speed, feed and water levels, and volume of steel balls despite variations in the feed and desired output quality.

SentianController solution

SentianController can adjust to variations in particle size distributions as well as hardness of input ore, choosing the control settings that will optimize the desired output. If a digitally controlled ball feeder is used, SentianController can also control the feed rate to further improve efficiency and output.
