Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum Grinding

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 ...

Feed Size VS Ball Size - Grinding & Classification ...

One can argue the f50 is a more realistic value since balls wear and the average ball size might be closer to half the maximum. Then the multiple would be closer to 13 times the maximum particle size fed to the ball mill. A f80 = 6 mm would need a ball size of 75 mm.

Ball Mill: Operating principles, components, Uses ...

A ball mill also known as pebble mill or tumbling mill is a milling machine that consists of a hallow cylinder containing balls; mounted on a metallic frame such that it can be rotated along its longitudinal axis. The balls which could be of different diameter occupy 30 – 50 % of the mill volume and its size depends on the feed and mill size.
