Ball Mill for Ore Processing and Mining - MBMMLLC

Ball Mills

Ball mills have been the primary piece of machinery in the traditional hard rock grinding circuit for 100+ years.  They are proven workhorses, with discharge mesh sizes from ~40M to <200M.  When an operation can justify a long term, stationary milling facility, the use of a ball mill is the best choice.  We sell them individually or as a component in our turnkey ore processor.

Product Description

Our ball mills are industrial grade and designed for continuous operation, equipped with oversized roller bearings and a complete drive system.  All wear parts are highly abrasion resistant and replaceable.

The capacity, or through-put, of a ball mill, is directly linked to particle size of the ball mill discharge.  For instance, it takes about 3 times as long to grind to 200 mesh as it does to grind to 65 mesh, so establishing a commercial liberation size is critical when designing the grinding circuit.  The buyer must specify both a desired through-put in tons per hour, and a discharge particle size in order to properly select a ball mill.  Give us a call for help in choosing the right ball mill for your application.
