Abstract. Ball size distribution is commonly used to optimise and control the quality of the mill product. A simulation model combining milling circuit and ball size distribution was used to determine the best make-up ball charge. The objective function was to find the ball mix that guarantees maximum production of the floatable size range (i.e

A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind or blend materials for use in mineral dressing processes, paints, pyrotechnics, ceramics, and selective laser sintering.It works on the principle of impact and attrition: size reduction is done by impact as the balls drop from near the top of the shell. A ball mill consists of a hollow cylindrical shell rotating about its axis. T
