Effect of ball and feed particle size distribution on the ...
Jun 01, 2018 Fig. 5 shows the variation of size class 1 (M1) with the milling time for the two feed size distributions. For this coarser feed the 50 + 20+10 mm ball diameter mix breaks the material at a faster rate compared to the other ball matches. The availability of a ball size for a particular feed size ensures breakage occurs at a faster rate.

where d b.max is the maximum size of feed (mm); σ is compression strength (MPa); E is modulus of elasticity (MPa); ρb is density of material of balls (kg/m 3); D is inner diameter of the mill body (m).. Generally, a maximum allowed ball size is situated in the range from D /18 to D/24.. The degree of filling the mill with balls also influences productivity of the mill and milling efficiency.

Ball Mill  an overview ScienceDirect Topics
Ball mills tumble iron or steel balls with the ore. The balls are initially 5–10 cm diameter but gradually wear away as grinding of the ore proceeds. The feed to ball mills (dry basis) is typically 75 vol.% ore and 25% steel. The ball mill is operated in closed circuit with a particlesize measurement device and sizecontrol cyclones.
