Cylindrical grinding media, which have a slightly spherical shape, called Cylpebs have recently been introduced. Comparative tests have been performed using Cylpebs and balls in a laboratory ball mill under the same conditions of mass and feed. Results show that a faster breakage rate is obtained using Cylpebs as the charge. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
