In some plants a ball-mill or rod-mill will reduce the ore to, say, 100 mesh and a tube-mill will finish the grinding to 200 mesh or finer. In other plants a ball- mill or a tube-mill will do all the grinding, but it must be fed with fine ore—say, 1/8 to ¼ inch—to do this properly.

get price### Ball mill Wikipedia

A ball mill, a type of grinder, is a cylindrical device used in grinding (or mixing) materials like ores, chemicals, ceramic raw materials and paints.Ball mills rotate around a horizontal axis, partially filled with the material to be ground plus the grinding medium. Different materials are used as media, including ceramic balls, flint pebbles and stainless steel balls.
