More Details1 Types on the Basis of Cylinder 1 Short Cylinder Ball Mill The ball mill with the cylinder length L less than 2 times of the cylinder diameter ie the ball mill with L ≤ 2D is short cylinder ball mill which is usually of single bin structure mainly used for rough grinding or primary grinding operation and can realize the wide use of 23 ball mills in series
More DetailsOct 10 2016 · The drum of the ball mill Pic 1 is a hollow cylinder of steel lined inside with armor lining plates which protect it from impact and friction effects of the balls and the grinding material The shape of drum liners has a significant impact on mill’s work Drum Liners of ball mills operated on a large source material have ribs
More DetailsThe ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 1–15 times the shell diameter Figure 811The feed can be dry with less than 3 moisture to minimize ball coating or slurry containing 20–40 water by weight
More DetailsSeveral types of ball mill exist They differ to an extent in their operating principle They also differ in their maximum capacity of the milling vessel ranging from 0010 litres for planetary ball mill mixer mill or vibration ball mill to several 100 litres for horizontal rolling ball mills
More DetailsThe operating principle of the ball mill consists of following steps In a continuously operating ball mill feed material fed through the central hole one of the caps into the drum and moves therealong being exposed by grinding media The material grinding occurs during impact falling grinding balls and abrasion the particles between the balls
