Ball mill load = 35%. Ball charge mass = 113 t. Ball size = 64 mm. Step 5. ... consumed by a tumbling mill as measured at the shaft was 152 kW when the mill was loaded with t of rods and the load was 45% of the mill volume. The bulk density of the rock charged was t/m 3. The mill was operated at 21 rpm, which was 70% of the critical speed.
