Rod Crusher Mills

Rod mills are very similar to ball mills. The rods grind the ore by tumbling within the mill. To prevent the conditions leading to rod charge tangling, theratio of length to diameter is maintained at 1.4 to 1.6. The maximum input size of rod mills is about 50 mm (2 in.) while the size range of final powders is between 3000 to 270 mm (4 to 35 mesh).
