Ball Mill Rotation Speed :

Grinding in Ball Mill is achieved by rolling of grinding media falling freely So Ball Mill must rotate at a speed at which the Grinding Media is carried up the side enough to roll down again over but not so great that it tends to be carried clear or the material to be ground and then tail.

    25% Large size (50-60 mm)
    50% Medium size (30 – 40 mm)
    25% Small size (30 mm)

Size of Balls :

It is surface of the Balls or Pebbles that do the grinding by their contact with others. It is observed that a mix of three sizes gives best result.

Quantity of Balls :

Ball charge should be 45% of their volume of the mill. However, higher the density better is the grinding.

Quantity of the material :

Theoretically the most efficient use of grinding ball is made when all the voids are filled with the material and the balls are just covered with it.

Consistency of Material :

The consistency of the mixture for wet grinding also effects the results. If the mixture is too thick balls will clog together. If the mixture is too thin then it will cause slipping. So the right amount of water is necessary.

Initial Size of material to be ground :

If the feed is fairly large it wears down the media and lining unnecessarily. A fine feed leads to efficient uniform and uncontaminated products. So it is always better to use finer material as far as possible.
