The Complexity of Controlling the Particle Size in Chocolate

18. Can you use different sizes of balls in a ball mill to simulate size distribution from roll refiner? Different sizes of balls in one-ball mill will not work. You can have different ball mills refining different fineness and, by mixing these, mimicking bi-modal particle distribution.

Improving particle size distribution and flow properties

17/09/2013 Ball mill chocolate has few of those, so a line could be extended by adding a ball mill process and blending both products, which then could even have an optimized PSD and increased packing density. Both ideas were tested in various experiments on blending and will be revealed in this study. Materials and methods. Experimental design. This paper reviews and summarizes various

Ball Mill Refiners Vs Roller Refiners Community

15/07/2011 One of the knocks against most conventional ball mills is uneven particle size distribution. The peak tends to be wider than other methods and their is often a bump in the tail where there are large sizes. I would have to disagree that most startups use ball mills, though. Apart from the Netzsch machines, which are very expensive a 50kg machine costs over $90,000 the only other small ball

Impact of fat content during grinding on particle size

Chocolate compound was produced using ball mill refiner, and the effect of agitator shaft speed and refining time on the physical quality parameters (particle size, colour and steady-state

Improving particle size distribution and flow properties

Grinding can generate varying particle size distributions (PSD), which again influence flow parameters. The latter are very important for downstream processing as well as mouthfeel and consumer acceptance of the final product. The objective of the work was to influence and control PSD and flow properties of ball mill chocolate. Various milk

mill speed, mill filling, ball size distribution and liner configuration. It was first applied to simulate ball milling by Mishra and Rajamani (1992), who originally described media motion in two dimensions. The technique is now packaged in a number of commercial as well as open source software, being able to describe media motion in three dimensions, which is critical to provide the quanti

The aim of this work was to define and optimize the process parameters for the pro-duction of milk chocolate by a non-conventional procedure, using the ball mill. The qua-lity of chocolate mass, produced on this way, is determined by measuring the following

OPTIMIZATION OF THE BALL MILL PROCESSING PARAMETERS IN

The particle size reduction takes place in a five-roll mill and very often with pre-refining in a three-roll refiner. On the other hand, presently the refining of cocoa spreads, fat fillings and even chocolate mass very often takes place in a ball mill [3]. The mass and the balls are additionally agitated by a shaft with

Attritor Mills & Media for Chocolate Processing Update

a Stirred Ball Mill” presented at the Powder & Bulk Solids Conference, Chicago, Illinois, May 1978. For specific energy input around 100 ksh/t, the media particle size achieved through the use of attritors is nearly one-half smaller than that obtained from conventional ball mills, one-third smaller than vibratory mills. For energy inputs exceeding 200 (kwh/t) attritors continue to grind into

Technological and nutritional aspects of milk chocolate

08/12/2020 The material was then mixed with cocoa butter (1:1) and the fine-grinding was performed using the ball mill with 15 kg of hardened steel balls of 6.35 mm diameter and with the frequency converter set to 25 Hz; the target size is X90 < 30 µm. The double-jacket was tempered at 50 °C for keeping the fat liquid, but the mass temperature should not exceed 60 °C.

Chocolate is refined Italian Food Tech

29/09/2014 Chocolate is refined. Single or two-stage processes and ball milling. Refining systems have evolved so that chocolate paste reaches optimal palatability thanks to perfect particle size and even distribution. When the cocoa pod, the fruit that grows on the cocoa tree (Theobroma cacao),is ripe it can contain up to 40 beans.

Calculate and Select Ball Mill Ball Size for Optimum Grinding

02/08/2013 In Grinding, selecting (calculate) the correct or optimum ball size that allows for the best and optimum/ideal or target grind size to be achieved by your ball mill is an important thing for a Mineral Processing Engineer AKA Metallurgist to do. Often, the ball used in ball mills is oversize “just in case”. Well, this safety factor can cost you much in recovery and/or mill liner wear and tear.
