### Circulating Load Calculation Formula

Here is a formula that allows you to calculate the circulating load ratio around a ball mill and hydrocylone as part of a grinding circuit. For example your ball mill is in closed circuit with a set of cyclones. The grinding mill receives crushed ore feed. The pulp densities around your cyclone are sampled and known over an 8-hour shift, allowing to calculate corresponding to circulating load

Calculating a grinding circuit’s circulating loads based on Screen Analysis of its slurries. Compared to %Solids or Density based Circulating load equations, a more precise method of determining grinding circuit tonnages uses the screen size distributions of the pulps instead of the dilution ratios. Pulp samples collected around the ball mill or rod mill and hydrocyclones,

The ball mills are operated at a ball charge volume of 30–32% and 78.5% critical speed. The SAG mill trommel undersize is combined with the ball mills’ discharge and pumped to two parallel packs (clusters) of twelve 660 mm diameter cyclones. The circulating load as a function of screen efficiency for the two circuits is shown in Figure 8.3.

increases with increased circulating load ratio, rapidly so at first and continuing to increase more gradually with higher circulating load ratio. The underlying cause of this relationship is revealed by comparing the ball mill feed and product size distributions from two circuits, one with low and one with a high circulating load ratio (Fig. 3).

CONCLUSION The circulating load and classification efficiency can have a significant effect on the performance of both closed ball mill and HPGR circuits. This is a well-known fact for ball mill circuits that has been recognised for almost 100 years. For HPGR circuits the knowledge is more recent, and is still being investigated.
