An investigation was conducted to determine the effect of the ball diameter sizes on milling operation. A laboratory size ball mill was used with ball media of sizes 10 mm, 20 mm and 30 mm respectively. Quartz was the material used to perform the experiment and was arranged into 3 monosizes namely 8 mm + mm, 4 mm + mm and2
Mechanical ball mills. With mechanical ball mills, material is discharged mechanically through a discharging box. The material is usually further conveyed to a dynamic separator, which together with the mill forms a mechanical ball mill grinding plant. These grinding plants are used to comminute relatively dry materials to a very high fineness.
