SAG Mill make use of steels balls included with some large hard rocks for grinding. These mill utilize the balls in making the large fragments of materials broken into pieces and ball mills are used primary for single stage fine grinding, regrinding, and as the second state in two stage grinding circuits.

In fact, in four of the surveys, the SAG mill was found to be more efficient at producing circuit product than the ball mill. Similar results have been seen consistently across all the surveys where this approach has been used, including circuits with AG mills, pebble mills, HPGR, stirred mills and ball mills with fine screens.

crushed ore is fed into a SAG/Ball mill circuit with a median size of approximately 12,000 microns. Most SAG Mills are operated in closed circuit with a screen. The screen fi lters undersized ore, normally minus ½ inch, to a ball mill discharge sump. The combined mill discharg-es are pumped to undergo classifi cation, normally via hydrocyclones.

The standard method for sizing secondary ball mills (usually the overflow type) in AG/SAG circuits follows published mill supplier information with aspect ratios in the range 1:1.5 to 1:2.0, depending upon product sizing and pulp flow, i.e., the highest expected circulating loads (Morrell, 2001). The applied net power, calculated from testwork

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 ...
