## Ball Mills an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Generally, filling the mill by balls must not exceed 30%–35% of its volume. The productivity of ball mills depends on the drum diameter and the relation of ∫ drum diameter and length. The optimum ratio between length L and diameter D, L: D, is usually accepted in the range 1.56–1.64.

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 particle-size measurement device and size-control cyclones.

2021-7-5 Modern mills operate with load cells and mill optimizer's which synchronize the mill weight, power draw, ore feed and weight with density control. Where optimizers are not used, the rule of thumb for a overflow ball mill is a ball load up to about 12 inches below the trunnion discharge- this allows bed expansion by the slurry filling the voids and lifting the steel balls.
