The effect of ball size distribution increased with increasing mill filling and for the mill filling of 35%, the ball size distribution had the maximum effect on the power draw. When the mill charge contained mono-sized balls, the ball flow regime inside the mill transited to the cataracting and impact breakage was the main breakage mechanism.

Jun 01, 2018 Fig. 8 shows that the small 10 mm ball size is superior in generating more material in the fines size class, from both feed sizes used. If an objective function was to maximize the production of fines e.g. in the cement industry, the A.R shows that use of smaller ball sizes would give superior results.

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

The first problem will ball mills is that we cannot see what is occurring in the mill. The other problem is that many of the independent variables are non-linear or have paradoxical effects on the end results. In ball milling of dry solids the main independent variables are mill diameter, mill speed, media size, solids loading and residence time.
