Ball Mill - Continuous process

What is it?

  • Sturdy & flexible solution for percussion, friction and attrition crushing,
  • The final product fineness can be adjusted to application requirements,
  • Large range of flow rates.
The ball mill (batch or continuous process) tends to be the most suitable solution for a wide range of applications


Working principle

Environment and recycling Process
  • The ball mill is made of a cylinder rotating on a horizontal shaft, including a grinding charge & fed with the (wet or dry) material to be finely ground,
  • +/- 2/3 of the drum volume is filled with the grinding charge,
  •  The drum rotates on the shaft at a precise rotation speed, optimized for crushing,
  • The product is ground by impact, friction or attrition.
  • Continuous process (wet or dry product),
  • From medium to large flow rates,
  • Designed for overflow or peripheral unloading,
  • Can be ventilated for drying or cooling, 
  • Drying is possible during grinding process or at crusher outlet,
  • At outlet, the product undergoes a particle size separation (by screening, by air separator (most common) or by hydrocycloning (wet way)) to obtain desired paticle size. The oversize is recirculated in the crusher, 
  • Low maintenance costs,
  • High reliability.
