### 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.

Nov 01, 2015· Balls are added to compensate for ball wear inside the mill and that results in a continuous size distribution of balls inside the mill. For a make-up ball charge consisting of single ball sizes, the mass distribution in the mill is given by: (4) M d = d 4 − Δ − d min 4 − Δ d max 4 − Δ − d min 4 − Δ where M(d) is the mass
