4.1.2.2 Grinding In the grinding circuit, rod, ball, or autogenous mills grind the taconite down into even smaller uniformed-sized particles. The ore is ground less than 325 mesh, and in some cases less than 500 mesh (45 - 25 microns) to help facilitate the liberation of the iron minerals from the rock. 4.1.2.3 Concentration

Grinding Mill Control The primary grinding stage at a taconite plant on Minnesota's Mesabi Range consists of ten wet grinding mills, each 26' in diameter and 16' long. Each mill is driven by two 3,500 hp wound rotor induction motors. Maximum production through each mill is limited by the ratings of the induction drive motors. The

Abstract. Progressive improvements in crusher design, screening efficiency, and operating experience along with the down sizing of many taconite operations has resulted in the ability of some crushing plants to produce a substantially finer product. This finer product opens the possibility of replacing the rods in the rod mill with balls.

Traditional taconite pellet-making processes use a rod mill to get the rock to the consistency of coarse sand, and a ball mill to grind the rock into a fine powder. This technology is still in use on Minnesota's Iron Range by some facilities. A taconite plant may have as many as 18 rod mills with one rod alone weighing as much as 500 pounds.
