FLSmidth rod mills create a coarser product than do ball mills and typically operate at a slower mill speed. Rod mills can be either wet or dry designs. Dry applications feature a peripheral discharge or an air-swept arrangement.

Designs extend to 15' x 22' (21' effective). The mill length is limited by manufacturing constraints for the grinding rods Length-to-diameter ratios should be kept above 1.4 to prevent rod entanglement.
