Load the rice into ball mill along with metal balls. Run the ball mill for 30 minutes at a speed of 1 rpm. After 30 minutes take out rice powder from the ball mill. Fill the rice powder to a new set of sieve of smaller sizes.
In ball mill, size reduction is done by both impact and attrition of particles. Rod mill is similar to ball mills but it uses long rods for grinding media. Autogenous mill is a self-grinding mill which is used in breakage of larger rocks.
Ball Mill is the equipment to be used for size reduction. It is a kind of grinder used for intermediate or fine grinding. Ball mill is a metal cylinder which rotates about its horizontal axis. The coarse sugar charged along with the metal balls breaks to fine powder by impact of metal balls.
In this study, we investigate the effect of the ball size in a high-energy ball mill on the comminution rate and particle size reduction. High-energy ball milling at 2000 rpm produces ultrafine .
Marko Milunovic 21297696 Lab 1: Size Reduction/Particle Size Analysis Experiment 1: Size Reduction/Particle Size Analysis Introduction The purpose of the experiment was to investigate the effect of milling time on the particle size and size distribution of Kaolin clay. Two methods of grinding will be investigated.
A ball mill is an example of a comminution method which produces size reduction by both impact and attrition of particles. Ball mills consist of a hollow cylinder mounted such that it can be rotated on its horizontal longitudinal axis. Cylinder diameters can be greater than 3 m, although much smaller sizes are used pharmaceutically.
Mills should be sterilized by steam before use.Contamination of milled materials: In case of potent drugs and low dose products, contamination of the products should be avoided),the toughness and surface hardness of the solid, the roll speed, the milling time, the particle mixture and the size of milling ball.
