    Mar 20, 2020 In this blog you can read there are multiple reasons for measuring density in the grinding circuit. In most sites a ball mill is used for grinding and a (hydro) cyclone for classification. The slurry needs to be continuously monitored and controlled. Density meters efficiently help operators to monitor and control the grinding circuit, optimize it and prevent process failures

    This paper presents a dynamic simulator of the electromechanical coupling start-up of a ball mill. The electromechanical coupling model based on the dynamic model of the ball mill, the characteristic equation of the clutch, and the dynamic model of the induction motor is established.
