A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind and 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.
Ball Mill Loading - Dry Milling. Ball Mill Loading (dry milling) When charging a ball mill, ceramic lined mill, pebble mill, jar mill or laboratory jar use on a jar rolling mill it is important to have the correct amount of media and correct amount of product.
In the grinding process, materials are reduced in size by fracturing them. The mechanism of fracture is not fully understood, but in the process, the material is stressed by the action of mechanical moving parts in the grinding machine and initially the stress is absorbed internally by the material as strain energy.
