Optimum grinding conditions are usually obtained when the bulk volume of the balls is equal to 50 percent of the volume of the mill. The diameter of the balls Small balls facilitate the production of the fine material as they do not deal so effectively with large particles in the feed.

Introduction: 'Ball milling is a method used to break down the solids to smaller sizes or into a powder. A
Get PriceIn one process, for example, reduction is accomplished in an autoclave at 225-280F (107-138C) in one hour under a partial pressure of hydrogen of 400 psig (total pressure 425 psig) with a thickening agent added to minimize plating and control the particle size. During reduction, 90-95% of the copper is precipitated as powder
Get PriceSep 21, 2019 Tumbling mills (Rod mill) In a rod mill, much of the reduction is done by rolling compression and by attrition as the rods slide downward and roll over one another. The grinding rods are usually steel, 25 to 125 mm (1 to 5 in.) in diameter, with several sizes present at all times in any given mill. The rods extend the full length of the mill

Get Pricewhere d b.max is the maximum size of feed (mm); σ is compression strength (MPa); E is modulus of elasticity (MPa); ρb is density of material of balls (kg/m 3); D is inner diameter of the mill body (m).. Generally, a maximum allowed ball size is situated in the range from D /18 to D/24.. The degree of filling the mill with balls also influences productivity of the mill and milling efficiency
Get PriceSep 01, 2013 With a size reduction ratio of 16:1 (Fig. 7a), the maximum capacity was obtained with a 50.8 mm/25.4 mm ball mix ratio of 90:10. As the size reduction ratio increases, the optimum ball ratio moves towards more small balls
Get PriceAt this speed the balls are carried almost to the top of the mill and then fall in a cascade across the diameter of the mill. By this means the maximum size reduction is obtained by impact of the particles between the balls and by attrition between the balls. Generally it is 0.5 cycles per seconds (cps)
