Ball mill - Wikipedia
A ball mill, a type of grinder, is a cylindrical device used in grinding (or mixing) materials like ores, chemicals, ceramic raw materials and paints.Ball mills rotate around a horizontal axis, partially filled with the material to be ground plus the grinding medium. Different materials are used as media, including ceramic balls, flint pebbles, and stainless steel balls.10.1016/j.mineng.2009.08.010 | DeepDyve,The energy saving of this mill is claimed to be similar to that of HPGR and 30–50% lower than a ball mill ( Cordonnier, 1994 ). In raw material grinding up to 20% moisture content, 50% energy reduction ( Marchal, 1995 ) and savings in capital costs of between 12% and 15% could be achieved compared to ball mills ( Buzzi, 1997 ).Chapter 20 Modelling of Mills and Milling Circuits,,01-01-2007· 3.4.3. Dry and wet ball mills. Ball mills with large diameter and short length (pancake type) are also modelled assuming ideal mixing. A few methods for the modelling of wet media milling, taking into account occurring internal classification effects, have been proposed by Cho and Austin .
