# Determining The Wear Rate On Balls In A Ball Mill

### Grinding Media Wear Rate Calculation in Ball Mill

2017-4-29 Then in ball-wear formula (25), T = 6.9/K Log10 Da/Db; but from (29), K = Rt/Wt. Then T = 6.9Wt/Rt Log10 Da/Db T is 1 day, Wt is the original weight of the ball charge, and Rt is the ball wear for one day. Then Log10 Da/Db = Rt/6.9Wt are all known, and it is only necessary to solve for Db, the diameter of the balls

2009-12-8 Re: how to estimate the wear rate for Ball mill. Ball wear can be measured by weighing an entire charge before and after grinding a known tonnage of materials. With new balls sample of given size can be weighed before and after grinding a given tonnage and, assuming uniform wear per unit of ball surface, the total charge wear can be estimated.
