The ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media. The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 11.5 times the shell diameter ( Figure 8.11 ). The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 2040% water by weight.
A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind, blend and sometimes for mixing of 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.
Ball mills are among the most variable and effective tools when it comes to size reduction of hard, brittle or fibrous materials. The variety of grinding modes, usable volumes and available grinding tool materials make ball mills the perfect match for a vast range of applications.
The basic construction of a ball mill is a cylindrical container with journals at its axis. The cylinder is filled with grinding media (ceramic or metallic balls or rods), the product to be ground is added and the cylinder is put into rotation via an external drive causing the media to roll
