Mining practice has proved that the effect of grinding stage can determine the quality of mineral products. Therefore, copper investors should adopt high-quality copper ore grinding plants to improve the mining efficiency. In the copper mining industry, the copper ore grinding plant is specially designed to grind copper-bearing particles. For those small copper mining companies, they prefer using small copper ore grinding plant. Compared with large scale copper ore grinding plant, small copper ore grinding plant costs less, needs less workers and occupies little working space. What is more, the price and cost of small copper ore grinding plant is so attractive and reasonable.
The copper ore grinding plants deal with the crushed copper-bearing particles into fine even ultrafine powder so that the leaching and smelting process can go smoothly. Copper ore grinding process can be divided into wet grinding and dry grinding. According to different applications, there will be open-circuit grinding and closed-circuit grinding process. However, SBM engineers can design different grinding solutions according to your requirements. Nowadays, main types of small copper ore grinding plant include the ball mill, rod mill and vertical mill, etc.
The process of copper ore grinding belongs to a closed circuit, in which the over-sized particles of copper ore are returned from the post milling process to be re-milled until the size of final product achieves the requirement. For those small copper investors, ball mill performs as a popular type of small copper ore grinding plant. The ball mill is widely used for grinding crushed copper-bearing particles, belonging to a key machine in the process of copper mining. The machine is composed by feeding part, discharging part, turning part and driving part (reducer, small driving gear, electric motor and electric control). The quill shaft adopts cast steel part and the liner is detachable. As an extra-hard mineral, the copper ore needs a high-efficiency grinding mill to bring about reduction. Typically, there are mainly two types of ball mill, including the dry ball mill and wet ball mill.
