The Process Of Ball Mill

We all know that the main ingredient of limestone is calcium carbonate but sometimes it may also contain magnesium, iron or manganese affecting the whiteness and hardness of limestone.Nowadays, people like to use high-quality limestone to make powder by different crushing machines and ball mills.

A rod mill is an ore grinding mechanism that uses a number of loose steel rods within a rotating drum to provide its attrition or grinding action.An ore charge is added to the drum, and as it rotates, friction between the tumbling rods breaks the ore down into finer particles.Although similar in operation, a rod mill is often more effective than a ball mill as it requires lower rotational speeds and less steel to achieve the same results.It is, however, limited to maximum rod and drum lengths of approximately 20 feet (6 meters) and is generally only used for wet grinding processes.The rod mill also tends to suffer from accelerated drum liner and lifter wear due to the increased weight of the rods.

Under normal circumstances, in addition to the material itself, the discharge fineness of the grinding mill is adjusted by the fan air volume, the roller speed, ability of the analyzer etc.While the ball mill is mainly adjusted by the length of the roller and grinding cylinder specifications.

Ball mill machine is composed by feeding part, discharging part, turning part and driving part (reducer, small driving gear, electric motor and electric control).The quill shaft adopts cast steel part and the liner is detachable.The turning gearwheel adopts casting hobbling process and the drum is equipped with wear-resistant liner, which has good wear-resistance.The ball grinding mill is with stable and reliable working condition.Moreover, according to different materials and discharging methods, there are dry ball mills and wet ball mills for choice.

It could carry out dry and wet millings on different materials.Limestone ball mill is a mineral processing machine for milling the materials into powders after they are crushed.It is widely applied to the production of cements, silicate products, building materials, fireproof materials, fertilizers, glass, ceramics as well as nonferrous and ferrous metal processing industries.

The ceramic ball mill machinery has the advantages of less investment, lower energy consumption, novel structure, easy operation, stable and reliable performance and so on, which is suitable for grinding common and special materials.Customers can choose suitable types of ceramic ball mill jars according to the specific gravity, hardness, and capacity of materials.

Ball mills ball mills, also known as centrifugal or planetary mills, are devices used to rapidly grind materials to colloidal fineness (approximately 1 micron and below) by developing high grinding energy via centrifugal and/or planetary action.An example of a four station planetary mill available through the gilson company is shown below.To grind a sample in this device, you should already have reduced the particle size to less than 10 mm, using a mortar and pestle if necessary.Place your material in one of the bowls (shown in the lower right) and then add several balls (shown in a tray at the bottom).Samples can be run wet or dry.A cover is placed on the bowl and then the bowl is mounted in the machine.In the picture below, one bowl has been fastened down and the other has not yet been secured.Once the bowls are mounted and secured, the cover is lowered and the machine can be operated.Each bowl sits on an independent rotatable platform, and the entire assembly of four bowls is also rotated in a direction opposite to the direction of the bowl platform rotation.This action is a lot like the "teacup and saucer" rides commonly found in amusement parks.In planetary action, centrifugal forces alternately add and subtract.The grinding balls roll halfway around the bowls and then are thrown across the bowls, impacting on the opposite walls at high speed.Grinding is further intensified by interaction of the balls and sample.Planetary action gives up to 20 g acceleration and reduces the grinding time to about 2/3 of a simple centrifugal mill (one that simply spins around).Grinding media are available in agate, sintered corundum, tungsten carbide, tempered chrome steel, stainless steel, zirconium oxide, and polyamide plastic.The exact type of bowl and balls that are used depend on the type of material being ground.For example, very hard samples might require tungsten carbide balls in steel bowls.For typical use, agate is a good choice.As with any method of grinding, cross contamination of the sample with the grinding unit material can be a complication.While ball mills save considerable time and effort over hand grinding with a mortar and pestle, this is not without cost.List prices for the simplest jar mills are in the ballpark of $3,000 usd, and 4-station mills like the one shown above can cost $10,000 or more.Grinding bowls with lids can be $1,000 to $2,000 each depending on the size and the material required.Balls can add from $25 to $400 per bowl depending on your material needs.More information the following companies manufacture ball mills and some have additional information, hints or tips on their web sites: gilson company, inc.Dymatron retsch spex certiprep united nuclear mix things up around the lab with shakers, vortex mixers, heating mantles and more from safety emporium.

5.Energy-saving grate ball mill is equipped with oil-mist lubrication device which guarantees smooth operation of gears.

ball mill grinding medium the grinding medium of cement dry ball mill includes steel ball, steel rod, steel pipe, stone, porcelain ball, etc.The steel ball is divided into cast iron, bearing steel, carbon steel and other materials, and the diameter of steel ball varies from 15mm to 125mm.The steel bar is short cylindrical or conical, which has line surface contact with the material and strong grinding effect.

When the planetary ball mill turning and grinding medium in a centrifugal force and the lining board face to cylinder under the action of friction, attached with the cylinder body wall lining board face, together with the cylinder, and taken to a certain height, free fall under gravity, whereabouts of grinding medium, like a projectile impact at the bottom of the material to material.Grinding medium rise and fall of circular movement is cyclical.Produce sliding and rolling, thus grinding body, between the lining and material grinding effect, make the material of ground.
