The size of the grinding media is one parameter that controls efficiency and the slip rheology developed during milling. The use of 6.3 mm (1/4-in.) alumina cylinders as grinding media as opposed to 19.0 mm (3/4 in.) cylinders was observed to provide better efficiency and Theological behavior for fine alumina, clay, and talc slurries. The percent solids loading was also observed to affect the slurry rheology and milling efficiency. Causes of these effects are discussed.
