Jun 01, 2018· Fig. 8 shows that the small 10 mm ball size is superior in generating more material in the fines size class, from both feed sizes used. If an objective function was to maximize the production of fines e.g. in the cement industry, the A.R shows that use of smaller ball sizes would give superior results.

Effect of ball size and powder loading on the milling. Dec 01, 2013 As the rotation speed increases, kinetic energy of the balls increases, which, in turn, shifts the optimum ball size toward a smaller value. As the powder loading increases from 1 to 35 g at a given rotation speed and ball size, the milling efficiency decreases monotonically.

More### 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 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. A ball mill consists of a hollow cylindrical shell rotating about its axis. T

and with the decreased grain size, the necessary ball size also decreases (Olejnik, 2010; 2011). For each grain size there is an optimal ball size (Trumic et. al., 2007). The bigger ball in relation to the optimal one will have an excess energy, and consequently, the smaller ball mill has less energy necessary for grinding. In both
