### Ball Mills an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Productivity of ball mills depends on drum diameter and the relation of drum diameter and length. Optimum ratio between length L and diameter D, L:D is, usually, accepted in the range 1.56–1.64. The mill productivity also depends on many other factors: physical-chemical properties of feed material, filling of the mill by balls and their sizes, armor surface shape, speed of rotation, milling
