MODULE #5: FUNCTIONAL PERFOMANCE OF BALL
For any process, including ball mill circuits, we can say that output equals input multiplied by efficiency*. Output = Input x Efficiency In a ball mill circuit, the "output" can be defined as the production rate of fines of the circuit. As for any output, ball mill circuit output is a function of both its inputs and efficiencies.

Ball Mill  an overview ScienceDirect Topics
8.3.2.2 Ball mills. The ball mill is a tumbling mill that uses steel balls as the grinding media. The length of the cylindrical shell is usually 1–1.5 times the shell diameter (Figure 8.11 ). The feed can be dry, with less than 3% moisture to minimize ball coating, or slurry containing 20–40% water by weight.
