A tumbling mill is a collective name for the generally known ball mills, rod mills, tube mills, pebble mills and autogeneous mills. For all these kinds of mills the mechanics can be dealt with together, there being no substantial difference in the grinding process. Keywords. Critical Speed; Filling Rate; Specific Energy Consumption; Drop Height
