Having been in a few process plants with SAG mills & they are inefficient- as low as 1% - since power costs are becoming a big issue there is lots of research being done ( try googling under SAG Mill efficiency) -technically I wouldn't consider them a 'crusher'- they are grinding mills and some mill people might take offence- note that SAG mills are high compared …

Since the early 1980s, we have been designing and manufacturing Semi Autogenous Mill (SAG Mill) and Autogenous Mill (AG Mill) under the Fuller-Traylor brand. Semi-autogenous grinding uses a minimal ball charge in the range of 6-15% while autogenous grinding uses ore only. SAG and AG Mills operate by lifting ore/grinding media and dropping it on ...

Control of -SemiAutogenous Grinding(SAG) mill weight is an example of an important process that exhibits many of these aspects. Maintaining the SAG mill weight at the optimum value is critical for achieving maximum grind rate efficiency and mill production (Powell, M.S., van der Westhuizen, A.P., & Mainza, A.N. 2009).

The biggest characteristic of the sag mill is that the crushing ratio is large. The particle size of the materials to be ground is 300 ~ 400mm, sometimes even larger, and the minimum particle size of the materials to be discharged can reach 0.1 mm. The calculation shows that the crushing ratio can reach 3000 ~ 4000, while the ball mill's ...
