  • Ball mill Wikipedia

    A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind or blend materials for use in mineral dressing processes, paints, pyrotechnics, ceramics, and selective laser sintering. It s on the principle of impact and attrition: size reduction is done by impact as the balls drop from near the top of the shell. A ball mill consists of a hollow

  • Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum Grinding

    2018/07/05· In Grinding, selecting (calculate) the correct or optimum ball size that allows for the best and optimum/ideal or target grind size to be achieved by your ball mill is an important thing for a Mineral Processing Engineer AKA Metallurgist to do. Often, the ball used in ball mills is oversize “just in case”. Well, this safety factor can cost you much in recovery and/or mill liner wear and

  • Cement mill Wikipedia

    Ball mills are normally operated at around 75% of critical speed, so a mill with diameter 5 metres will turn at around 14 rpm. The mill is usually divided into at least two chambers (although this depends upon feed input size mills including a roller press are mostly single-chambered), allowing the use of different sizes of grinding media.

  • A specific energy-based size reduction model for batch

    2015/01/01· A particle size reduction model has been developed as the first component of an upgraded ball mill model. The model is based on a specific energy-size reduction function, which calculates the particle breakage index, t 10, according to the size-specific energy, and then calculates the full product size distribution using the t 10 –t n relationships and the mass-size balance approach.
