### Ball Mills an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media. The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 1–1.5 times the shell diameter (Figure 8.11). The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 20–40% water by weight.

Investigations were carried out in a laboratory ball mill having the size of DxL= 160x200 mm with a ribbed inside surface of the drum. The mill ball loading was 40% by volume, the rotation rate was equal to 85% of the critical speed. Balls were made from steel: S4146, extra high quality, having hardness 62 ± 2 HRC according to Rockwell.

Jun 01, 2018· The availability of a ball size for a particular feed size ensures breakage occurs at a faster rate. The 10 mm ball size is unable to nip the large particle size hence the breakage rate is slower. For a finer feed, the 20 mm + 10 mm binary mix is able to break the feed at a faster rate.
