The effect of ball size on breakage rate parameter in a pilot …

 · The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of ball size on grinding kinetics in a pilot scale ball mill. Six different ball media gradings were tested. Comparative tests were conducted in batch ball mill having 1.2 m diameter and 0.6 m length at constant operating condition of mill such as media mass, mill speed and input specific energy.

Effect of Ball Size and Ball to Powder Ratio Variation on …

The variation of ball size in a planetary ball mill (PBM) was studied in terms of its effect on the specific impact energy of balls as a result of ball to ball and ball to vial collision calculated through a computer simulation. The mean crystallite size of calcium carbonate in the course of milling as well as the required time for obtaining a thoroughly formed calcium carbonate was also ...

Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum …

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 ...

Ball mill

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 works on the principle of impact and attrition: size reduction is done by impact as the balls drop from near the top of the shell.
