Ball mill - Wikipedia
A ball mill, a type of grinder, is a cylindrical device used in grinding (or mixing) materials like ores, chemicals, ceramic raw materials and paints.Ball mills rotate around a horizontal axis, partially filled with the material to be ground plus the grinding medium. Different materials are used as media, including ceramic balls, flint pebbles, and stainless steel balls.Ball mills - Metso,Metso has designed, manufactured and installed over 8,000 ball and pebble mills all over the world for a wide range of applications. Some of those applications are grate discharge, peripheral discharge, dry grinding, special length to diameter ratio, high temperature milling oprations and more.Ball Mills - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics,For many decades the two-compartment ball mill in closed circuit with a high-efficiency separator has been the mill of choice. In the last decade vertical mills have taken an increasing share of the cement milling market, not least because the specific power consumption of vertical mills is about 30% less than that of ball mills and for finely ground cement less still.
