Nowadays, ceramic ball is commonly used as catalyst support in the chemical industry. However, ceramic balls production has not being widely study yet. This is because it is difficult and expensive to study the production of ceramic balls from the plant instead simulation study is necessary to carry out. Therefore, this project is carried out to develop mathematical modeling from the ceramic balls production and to validate the parameters from the experimental work data with the simulation data based on simulation software. Actually, simulation can improve the system performance by changing the model parameter. Therefore, in this project, the mass, volume and radius parameter will be study. Firstly, mathematical modeling of the ceramic ball production must be developing and then simulation model can be developing by using MATLAB software. Then, run the simulation model and identify whether the result is validate with mathematical modeling or not. If not, refers to the mathematical model back and if validate, end the simulation. From this research, it is expected to result in mathematical modeling in the ceramic ball production. By using simulation also one will reduce time, cost, and disruption of experimenting on the actual system. Then, experiments are too expensive, too dangerous, and the system to be investigated does not yet exist but by using simulation all variables can be studied and control and it is easy to manipulate the parameters.
