HD Technologies Case Study SPM Instrument

The working principle of the ball mill is as follows. In a continuously operating ball mill, the feed material (copper ore) passes through the central hole of one of the caps into the drum where it is exposed to the grinding media. The grinding of the material occurs during impact with the falling grinding balls and abrasion of the particles
