Oct 19, 2006· What it is the optimun speed for a ball mill ? posted in Pyrotechnics: I have done a ball mill , recenly finished , but the motor has too rpms , is too fast for use in a ball mill (the pvc cylinder that i use , left of the shafts). With the motor i will use a 40 mm pulley , because i have a 50 mm driven pulley, in one of my two shafts.
A ball mill also known as pebble mill or tumbling mill is a milling machine that consists of a hallow cylinder containing balls; mounted on a metallic frame such that it can be rotated along its longitudinal axis. The balls which could be of different diameter occupy 30 50% of the mill volume and its size depends on the feed and mill size.
