Ball Mill is a type of grinder used to grind materials into an extremely fine powder mainly for use in the mineral processing industry. Ball Mills can grind various ores and other materials either wet or dry, depending on requirements.
Ball mill is the key equipment for grinding after the crushing process in the beneficiation plant, it is used to grind kinds of materials such as copper ore, gold ore, magnetite ore, quartz, lead zinc ore and other materials into fine powder 20-75micrometer. Based on discharging type, It could be grate type,overflow type etc. What's more, the ball mill can be used for the dry and wet grinding for all kinds of ores and other grind-able materials.

Ball mill grinding machine is a kind of horizontal drum-type grinding mill with external gear and double bins. Materials goes evenly through quill shaft in feeding device into the first bin, which has ladder lining or ripple lining with steel balls in different specifications.Steel balls are taken to a certain height by centrifugal force from drum rotation and then fall. Thus it will give a heavy blow to materials, playing a role of grinding. Materials after crushed in the first bin shall enter bin across single-layer diaphragm into the second, which is provided with flat lining with steel balls, to go through further grinding. The ground materials are discharged through the discharging board thus the grinding process is finished.
Our largest mills has been delivered to SINO Site to date are Ø12.2m x 11m 28MW Gearless Drive AG Mills and Ø7.9m x 13.6m 2x8 MW Twin Pinion Drive Ball Mills. These mills are scheduled of start up on 2012.
Our market share in China exceeds 80% with the largest mills supplied to date being a Ø7.9m x 13.6m 2x8.5MW Ball Mill and a Ø11m x 5.4m 2x8.5MW SAG Mill , being the largest in China.CITIC HMC Company is the key large enterprise for the design and manufacture equipments in China. The manufacture of grinding equipment begins from 1960s. Since 1980s,our company has cooperated with many famous foreign grinding manufactures on technology introduction ,cooperating manufacture and development. We have in particular long experience in mill testing, study, design, made and field operation, and made advancement and innovation on foreign technologies. Now we have established our own grinding laboratory, formed various type mills to series, totally produced over 1000 sets, and exported to Australia, Russia, Pakistan, Zambia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Canada etc. we have produced the overflow ball mill with the largest size Φ5.5×8.5m, Φ8.5×4.0m semi-autogenous mill, Φ5×15.5m tube cement mill Φ5m vertical cement raw mill, etc.
Our company possesses the national first-rate study and group on mill, perfect experiment and testing measures, and superior manufacturing equipment and technology on large- scale mills, we have formed complete supplying system for mill experiment, study design, manufacture, testing and service.
Ball Mill Application:
A ball mill grinds ores and other materials to a typical product size of 35 mesh or finer.
The feed to a ball mill is prepared by...
· Single or multistage crushing and screening
· Crushing, screening, and/or rod milling
· Primary crushing and autogenous/semiautogenous grinding
Ball Mill Normal feed sizes:
· 80% passing 1/4" (6 mm or finer) for hard ores
· 80% passing 1" (25 mm or finer) for softer ores
(Larger feed sizes can be tolerated depending
Grate or Diaphragm Discharge Ball Mill
In the discharge end of this mill, a slotted full diameter or partial diameter grate with discharge lifter assembly conveys the material to the discharge trunnion opening. The grate serves to retain balls, tramp, and coarse material. A gradient created between the feed opening and the discharge slots eases the flow of material.
Trunnion Overflow Discharge Ball mill
A trunnion overflow mill has an open discharge end. Material flows through the trunnion as a result of the pulp gradient between the feed and discharge openings. A reverse helix in the discharge trunnion liner retains balls in the mill.
Ball Mill Feature
1. High-efficiency. Our ball mill adopts rolling bearing support instead of sliding bearing support with bearing bush. Therefore, it can save energy by 10-20%.
2. Simple structure, easy maintenance. Ball mill is mainly composed of feeding part, discharging part, turning part and driving part (reducer, small driving gear, electric motor and electric control). Convenient installation and debugging , easy to operate.
3. High processing capacity,obvious continuous operation advantages. The capacity can get 4.6-260 t/h.
4. Wide-range usage. Ball mill as an old grinding equipment in market, the technology is mature and operated steadily.
