At low speeds, the ball roll over each other and attrition (rubbing action) will be the predominate mode of action. Thus, in the ball mill, impact or attrition or both are responsible for the size reduction. Advantages: It can produce very fine powder. Ball mill is used for both wet and dry grinding processes.

5. Ball mill The ball mill consists of hollow cylindrical rotating shell made of steel lined with porcelain or high carbon steel plate. Upto 50 % of its volume, the shell is filled with balls made of steel or pebbles. The balls are of constant weight and varying size which depend on the amount of feed. The size reduction happens due to the

A ball mill also known as pebble mill or tumbling mill is a milling machine that consists of a hallow cylinder containing balls; mounted on a metallic frame such that it can be rotated along its longitudinal axis. The balls which could be of different diameter occupy 30 – 50 % of the mill volume and its size depends on the feed and mill size.
