Ball Mill Loading  Dry Milling  Paul O. Abbe
The starting point for ball mill media and solids charging generally starts as follows: 50% media charge. Assuming 26% void space between spherical balls (nonspherical, irregularly shaped and mixedsize media will increase or decrease the free space) 50% x 26% = 13% free space. Add to this another 10%15% above the ball charge for total of 23% ...

Each of these performance parameters peaks at different filling values. In order to continuously optimize mill operation, it is vital to obtain regular measurements of the ball load and pulp position.
