ball mill grinding plant with classifier for silica and
May 01, 2020 Nowadays, ball mills are used widely in cement plants to grind clinker and gypsum to produce cement. In this work, the energy and exergy analyses of a cement ball mill (CBM) were performed and some measurements were carried out in an existing CBM in a cement plant to improve the efficiency of the grinding process. A mill is a device that breaks solid materials into smaller pieces by grinding, crushing, or cutting. Such comminution is an important unit operation in many processes.There are many different types of mills and many types of materials processed in them. Historically mills were powered by hand or by animals (e.g., via a hand crank), working animal (e.g., horse mill), wind or water ().
