## EFFECT OF BALL SIZE DISTRIBUTION ON MILLING

2021-7-31 A series of batch grinding tests were carried out using three loads of single size media, i.e. 30.6 mm, 38.8 mm, and 49.2 mm. Then two ball mixtures were successively considered.

## Exploring ball size distribution in coal grinding mills

2014-5-1 The ball size distribution (BSD) in a mill is usually not known, as the measurement of the charge size distribution requires dumping the load and laboriously grading the balls into size classes. Fortunately we had one set of data as discussed below. The general non-availability of BSD necessitates the use of ball wear theory to estimate BSD as required.

Abstract The theory of the calculation of the size distribution of the equilibrium mixture of balls in a ball mill is developed.
