How do ball mills work?
A ball mill has a cylindrical rotating mixing vessel, which is partly filled with round balls. These balls must have a larger diameter than the product that is to be ground. The material of these balls depends on the type of product. The size of the bullets depends on the desired application. Larger balls grind or cut the product and finer balls provide a grinding operation, whereby the speed of rotation of the mixing vessel is limited to the turning off the balls.
Ball mill applications
Ball mills are used in the cement, ceramics and energy industries, as well as in pyrotechnics. They can produce very fine powders. They are suitable for grinding brittle and fibrous materials. They are indispensable in the production of talc, quartz, limestone, zircon sand, titanium dioxide, ceramic paints and inorganic pigments.
