### critical speed of the ball mill nc in powder metallurgy

the mill. The common range of mill speeds is 65% to 80% of critical, depending on mill type, size and the application. The critical speed of a ball mill is calculated as 54.19 divided by the square root of the radius in feet. The rotational speed is defined as a percentage of Actual operating speed of a ball mill may vary from 65 to 80% of the critical speed. Which of the following duties would require the ball mill to be operated at maximum percentage of critical speed? a) Wet grinding in low viscous suspension b) Wet grinding in high viscous suspension c) Dry grinding of large particles (upto 1.25 cms) d) Dry grindng of large particles in un-baffed mills
