Dec 23, 2013· Practical 1: Title: Ball Milling Objective: To grind the coarse salt to a smaller size by using a ball mill and to obtain the particle size distribution of the initial and the sieved final mixture. Introduction: 'Ball milling is a method used to break down the solids to smaller sizes or into a powder.
The mill (with 30 cm in diameter and 30 cm in length) and the test conditions are standardized, with a maximum ball size of 40 mm and an ore top size of mm. With less than 300 balls, it poses no challenge in running the simulations, if only grinding media are included. For such a small mill, one could also include the ore or powder charge.
