The ball mill motor power requirement calculated above as 1400 HP is the power that must be applied at the mill drive in order to grind the tonnage of feed from one size distribution. The following shows how the size or select the matching mill required to draw this power is

Live ChatFor each grain size there is an optimal ball size (Trumic et. al., 2007). The bigger ball in relation to the optimal one will have an excess energy, and consequently, the smaller ball mill has less energy necessary for grinding.

Live ChatIn Grinding, selecting (calculate) the correct or optimum ball size that allows for the best and optimum/ideal or target grind size to be achieved by your ball mill is an important thing for a Mineral Processing Engineer AKA Metallurgist to do.
