Nanoparticles are formed in a mechanical device, generically referred to as a “mill”, in which energy is imparted to a course-grained material to effect a reduction in particle size. The production of nanoparticles is becoming more important in many areas, and ball mill is the equipment needed for such fine milling.
application of ball mill
iron ore, kaolin, limestone, metal oxides, minerals, ores, paints and lacquers, paper, pigments, plant materials, polymers, quartz, seeds, alloys, bentonite, bones, carbon fibres, catalysts, cellulose, cement clinker, ceramics, charcoal, chemical products, clay minerals, coal, coke, compost, concrete, electronic scrap, fibres, glass, gypsum, hair, hydroxyapatite,..
Main features of ball mills
- Size range from 5 ft. x 8 ft. with 75 HP to 30 ft. x 41 ft. and as much as 30,000 HP
- Feed size is 80% passing 1/4″ (6mm or finer) for hard ores and 80% passing 1″ (25mm or finer) for soft ores
- Product size is typically 35 mesh or finer
