ball mills - the ceramic shop
In ceramics, ball mills are used to grind down materials into very fine particles. Materials such as clay and glaze components can be broken down in a ball mill by getting placed into rotating or rolling jars with porcelain balls inside them. During milling, the porcelain balls pulverized the materials into an incredibly fine powder. Ball mills can be used to further break down or refine a single material, or you can place multiple materials into a ball mill jar to mix as you pulverize -- this is a very common industrial solution for mixing glazes that require the smallest of mesh sizes. Ball mills basically function like a mortar and pestle, but on a much larger scale.
Here at The Ceramic Shop, we carry ball mills and accessories produced by strong and reliable Shimpo. Shimpo's line of heavy duty ball mills allow for very precise grinding and mixing of both dry and wet materials. The porcelain jars are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from one liter to ten liters in capacity, so you can really customize your ball mill outfit to suit your needs. If you are a potter working out of your home or a shared studio, and dont have the space or budget for a full-scale ball mill setup, consider Shimpos ball mill wheel attachment -- this ingenious setup allows you to turn any standard potters wheel into a makeshift ball mill!

The ceramic ball mill uses a ceramic material liner, and ceramic alumina balls are used as grinding media. It is the key ball grinding mill equipment for fine grinding after the ceramic glaze is coarsegrinding. The ceramic ball mill machine is widely used for the dry or wet grinding of the ceramic glaze mineral raw materials, such as feldspar, quartz, talc, kaolin, etc.
Due to its small capacity, the ceramic ball mill generally has a loading capacity of 0.05-15 tons/time. It belongs to asmall ball mill, so it is generally used in small batch production during product trial production.
In recent years, the ceramic ball mill machine has not only improved its production capacity and crushing efficiency, but also expanded its application range. From limestone to basalt, from stone production to various ore crushing, the ceramic ball mill can provide high milling performance in various medium crushing, fine crushing, and ultra-fine crushing operations.
As one of the high-quality ceramic ball mill suppliers, in order to match the needs of customers with larger production, we have launched a ceramic ball mill machine with a single charge of 40 tons. The size of the ceramic ball mill barrel is 36007000mm, the barrel rotation speed is 13r/min, and the installed power is 160KW, which has been praised by many customers with large production needs.
The ceramic ball mill media is the same as that of the liner, which is made of alumina ceramics. According to the different grinding materials, the grinding medium can also be made of quartz or silex. As the ceramic ball mill media, ceramic alumina balls have the advantages of low wear, high hardness, high density, and low cost, which can maximize the purity of the crushed materials and obtain high grinding efficiency.
The ceramic alumina balls in the ceramic ball mill machine is generally added to three to four different specifications, which is related to the feed and discharge particle size and the speed of theball milling machine. When only dispersing the material, only one type of ceramic alumina ball can be added. The proportion of grinding ball is related to the grinding method of the ceramic ball mill. The ratio of large balls, medium balls, and small balls in dry and wet ceramic ball mill is also different.
In the grinding process of dry ceramic ball mill machine, the function of large and small ceramic alumina ball is different. Relatively speaking, the large ceramic alumina ball is beneficial to the impact effect, while the small ball is beneficial to the grinding effect. When the ratio of the grinding ball is reasonable, the higher bulk density can be obtained. Therefore, the reasonable ratio of large and small balls is an important factor affecting the efficiency of dry ceramic ball mill machine.
For the wet ceramic ball mill, because of the participation of liquid, the material is crushed by grinding rather than impact. Therefore, the amount of large ceramic alumina balls should be appropriately reduced, and small and medium balls should be added to ensure a good grinding effect. The initial grinding ball ratio of wet ceramic ball mill machine is generally 30% for large ceramic alumina balls, 40% for medium balls and 30% for small balls.
As a ball mills supplier with 22 years of experience in the grinding industry, we can provide customers with types of ball mill, vertical mill, rod mill and AG/SAG mill for grinding in a variety of industries and materials.
