High Energy Mechanical Milling- Parameters for Optimizing Milling Efficiency

Posted by Chia-yu Chen on

Milling is a method to reduce solid particles to micron size level. It can also be used for mixing, blending and mechanical synthesis. Planetary ball mill is the most commonly used equipment for milling, but it is not easy to reduce particle size to nano size level by planetary ball mill. Various factors can affect milling performance, and it requires optimization. Typically, wet grinding performance can be better than dry grinding. The main factors affecting milling efficiency and performance include the followings: Materials of the milling jars and media. Milling media size Milling time Grinding speed Ball to powder ratio MSE...
