During ceramic tile production (wall, floor and poreclain stoneware), wet milling process for the preparation of ceramic slurries is widely used. The currently preferred wet grinding machines are discontinuous and/or continuous ball mills, where grinding occurs when a particle is crushed between two pieces of grinding media. Ball milling is, however, not a cost efective method, espcially in preparation of porcelain tile slurries since finer particle size/higher surface area is required. In order to improve grinding efficiency in wet milling, new milling machines such as “agitated/stirred media mills” have already been designed and employed. In this particular study, a combination of discontinuous ball mill and agitated media mill was utilized as a cost effective way of slip preparation for porcelain tile production.
