### Ball Mill

3.5.2.2 ball mills. the ball mill accepts the sag or ag mill product. ball mills give a controlled final grind and produce flotation feed of a uniform size. ball mills tumble iron or steel balls with the ore. the balls are initially 5–10 cm diameter but gradually wear away as grinding of the ore.Ag/sag mills can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or three stages of crushing and screening, a rod mill, and some or all of the work of a ball mill. because of the range of mill sizes available, ag/sag milling can often be accomplished with fewer lines than in a conventional rod mill/ball mill circuit. a diagram of types of ag/sag.
