Apr 18, 2001 The mill charge was made up of 5.08-cm diameter steel balls. A transparent Plexiglas™ faceplate enabled photographing the tumbling charge. The mill was operated at 30%, 50% and 70% of critical speed for two levels of mill filling (20% and 30% by volume). The tumbling ball charge was photographed with a high-speed camera.

7.2.1 Motion of the Charge. The distinctive feature of tumbling mills is the use of loose crushing bodies, which are large, hard, and heavy in relation to the ore particles, but small in relation to the volume of the mill, and which occupy (including voids) slightly less than half the volume of the mill.
