Ball Mill Type Oxide Manufacturing Systems . Operation. Lead Ingots are melted in the Melting Pot. The Molten Lead in the Melting Pot is pumped on to the Cylinder casting Machine. The Lead cylinders are casted in the Cylinder casting machines at a rate higher than that of the oxidation process.
Of the above thermal process for the manufacture of lead oxide compounds, the two that today produce the vast majority of battery oxide are the Barton and ball-mill processes, the mechanical principles of which will be discussed later. 2. Battery lead oxides
Ball Mill Process - Lead pigs, or ingots are charged with air into a ball mill. Frictional head generated by the tumbling lead ingots initiates and oxidation reaction. Oxygen in the air, assisted by the heat of the tumbling lead, reacts with the lead to produce lead oxide.
