Ball Mill

A ballmill is a type of grinder used to grind or blend materials for use in powder making production lines such as cement,silicate,refractory material,fertilizers or in mineral dressing processes, paints, pyrotechnics and ceramics. A ball mill typically consists of a hollow cylindrical chamber which rotates about a horizontal axis, and the chamber is partially filled with small balls made of steel or other material (depending on the product). Following drum rotation, balls or bearings rise by rolling along the cylindrical wall and descending again in a cascade from a certain height. The output is then milled between the grinding bodies.

Ball mills could operate dry or even process a water suspension
