The effect of ball size on mill performance  ScienceDirect
The specific rates of breakage of particles in a tumbling ball mill are described by the equation S i = ax α i (Q(z), where Q(z) is the probability function which ranges from 1 to 0 as particle size increases.This equation produces a maximum in S, and the particle size of the maximum is related to ball diameter by x m = k 1 d 2.The variation of a with ball diameter was found to be of the form ...

Effect of ball and feed particle size distribution on the ...
Jun 01, 2018 For this coarser feed the 50 + 20+10 mm ball diameter mix breaks the material at a faster rate compared to the other ball matches. The availability of a ball size for a particular feed size ensures breakage occurs at a faster rate. The 10 mm ball size is unable to nip the large particle size hence the breakage rate is slower.

Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum Grinding
Aug 02, 2013 In Grinding, selecting (calculate) the correct or optimum ball size that allows for the best and optimum/ideal or target grind size to be achieved by your ball mill is an important thing for a Mineral Processing Engineer AKA Metallurgist to do. Often, the ball used in ball mills is oversize “just in case”. Well, this safety factor can cost you much in recovery and/or mill liner wear and tear.

Ball mill  Wikipedia
A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind or blend 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. A ball mill consists of a hollow cylindrical shell rotating about its axis. T
