WhatsApp: +86 18203695377Effect of Ball Size and Properties on Mill Grinding Capacity Current ball milling theory suggests that grinding capacity is influenced by the size of balls charged to the mill. In selecting the appropriate ball charge, the first objective is to determine that ball size which will grind the coarse particles most efficiently. This size should be the largest ball size charged to the mill. The ...
WhatsApp: +86 18203695377We can calculate the steel charge volume of a ball or rod mill and express it as the % of the volume within the liners that is filled with grinding media. While the mill is stopped, the charge volume can be gotten by measuring the diameter inside the liners and the distance from the top of the charge to the top of the mill.

WhatsApp: +86 18203695377Tumbling ball mills or ball mills are most widely used in both wet and dry systems, in batch and continuous operations, and on small and large scales. Grinding elements in ball mills travel at different velocities. Therefore, collision force, direction, and kinetic energy between two or more elements vary greatly within the ball charge.
WhatsApp: +86 18203695377Charging a Dry Mill The general operation of a grinding mill is to have the product impacted between the balls as they tumble. If there are insufficient solids in the mill then the media will strike itself and generate excessive media wear. If too much product then the solid may buffer the impact too much.
