SAG is an acronym for semi-autogenous grinding. SAG mills are autogenous mills that also use grinding balls like a ball mill. A SAG mill is usually a primary or first stage grinder. SAG mills use a ball charge of 8 to 21%. [6] [7] The largest SAG mill is 42' (12.8m) in diameter, powered by a 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor. [8] A SAG mill with a 44 ...

a mill grind-out (no ore feed) of 10 to 20 minutes is also performed before mill inspection or relining. The complete grind-out is required to obtain the accurate ball load measurement or the percentage by volume of balls in the mill. This is usually performed soon after a crash stop. The basic principle is to measure the

Abstract. Outokumpu has developed a new algorithm for a mill volumetric charge measurement, which utilizes an oscillation in the power draw of a grinding mill. The new algorithm based on spectral analysis is described along with other reported charge volume measurement systems. The algorithm was tested on an industrial mill, which was equipped ...

The charge level of a mill can be described as the volume occupied by the grinding media (including empty spaces) as a fraction of the total volume available inside the equipment. Assuming this definition, other measurements may be taken considering the total charge that includes the rock charge; in this case, applicable to SAG and AG mills.
