For many mining industry factories or many grinding mill operators, they are familiar with Raymond mill and ball mill machine. However, both Raymond mill and ball mill have many difference, in this article, we will mainly talk about the difference between Raymond mill and ball mill.
1.Working principle difference between Raymond mill and ball mill
Raymond mill working principle: after the material was fed into the space between the grinding roller and grinding ring in the process of synchronous rotation of the shovel and the grinding roller, and forms a cushion material layer. And then the material on this layer is grind between the grinding roller and the grinding ring. Thus, the purpose of powder production is achieved.
Ball mill working principle: the ball mill is a horizontal rotating device transmitted by the outer gear. The materials are transferred to the grinding chamber through the quill shaft uniformly. There are ladder liner and ripple liner and different specifications of steel balls in the chamber. The centrifugal force caused by rotation of barrel brings the steel balls to a certain height and impact and grind the materials.
2.Application and finial product difference between Raymond mill and ball mill
Raymond mill application: it’s usually used in powder making industries, such as: calcium carbonate, calcite, dolomite and other more than 200 kinds of difference stone materials powder grinding, and according to the working principle difference the Raymond mill process stone powder is can be adjusted between 50 mesh to 450 mesh.
Ball mill application: compare with the powder grinding, the ball mill is more useful for powder mixing, and according to there are many steel balls in the ball mill internal, so the powder made by ball mill usually has a better uniform size. And the ball mill usually has a larger capacity, compare with other grinding mills.
3.Invest cost difference between Raymond mill and ball mill
Raymond mill cost: the Raymond mill use a vertical structure, and as a traditional stone powder making machines, the Raymond mill usually more cost save, but you should change the grinding parts in time.
Ball mill cost: compare with Raymond mill, the ball mill usually has a larger cover areas, so the over area cost will more expensive, and you should change the change the steel balls in time, otherwise, it’s will affect the finial powder quality.
