2020129 the percentage of the critical speed of the mill [8]. The critical speed is the speed at which the mill load sticks to the walls of the mill during rotation. The aim of this project was to determine the effect of the ball diameter on the operating parameters of the mill, which included the energy efficiency, the power requirement, mill load, critical speed as well as the size reduction of the mill charge.

Ball Mill Critical Speed  911 Metallurgist
2015619 A Ball Mill Critical Speed (actually ball, rod, AG or SAG) is the speed at which the centrifugal forces equal gravitational forces at the mill shell’s inside surface and no balls will fall from its position onto the shell. The imagery below helps explain what goes on inside a mill as speed varies.

Effect of ball size and powder loading on the milling ...
2013121 As for the reason why the optimal ball size for efficient milling decreases with the rotation speed of the mill, it is first conceived that the higher rotation speed will increase the average height of the balls from which the balls start to fall down, unless the balls rotate simultaneously with the container (centrifugation) due to an overly high rotation speed.

2018319 The effect of ball size distribution increased with increasing mill filling and for the mill filling of 35%, the ball size distribution had the maximum effect on the power draw. When the mill charge contained monosized balls, the ball flow regime inside the mill transited to the cataracting and impact breakage was the main breakage mechanism.

Effect of ball and feed particle size distribution on the ...
201861 The availability of a ball size for a particular feed size ensures breakage occurs at a faster rate. The 10 mm ball size is unable to nip the large particle size hence the breakage rate is slower. For a finer feed, the 20 mm + 10 mm binary mix is able to break the feed at a faster rate.

Further tests were conducted in a mill with a 20% ball filling with increasing coarse or fine silica sand particle filling from 0 – 150% at the mill speeds of 6398% of the critical mill speed. These tests clearly reveal radial segregation of coarse silica sand, increased ball cataracting and centrifuging of just silica sand or a combination of balls and silica sand.

2010412 2.1.2 Critical Speed: If the peripheral speed of the mill is very high, it begins to act like a centrifuge and the balls do not fall back, but stay on the perimeter of the mill and that point is called the "Critical Speed” (n c).This phenomenon is called centrifuging. Ball mills usually operate at 65% to 75% of the critical speed.
