The aspect ratio (mill diameter/mill length) of autogenous and semi autogenous mills varies widely and can be as high as three or as low as 0.5. The literature on the subject of what effect aspect ratio has on grinding mill performance or energy efficiency is almost non-existent. However, at the design stage of many grinding circuits the subject is often vigorously debated amongst …

example a number of the very fine transfer sizes come from mills with very low aspect ratios (mill length long in relation to diameter). However, similar T80's have been produced by high aspect ratio mills running in AG mode. At the other end of the spectrum some of the very coarse T80 values have been

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 ...

The single-stage autogenous grinding (AG) or semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill is a low-cost option for milling relatively low tonnages. Such circuits consist of an AG or SAG mill that is fed directly from a primary crusher, and the mill product is then classified through a hydrocyclone (or

for further reduction. Medium aspect mills are common in Australia with aspect ratio between 1.2 and 1.5 (Powel M, 2006). Low aspect mills are common in South Africa and Scandinavia. The length can be twice the diameter to give an aspect ratio of 0.5. The mill ensure a high residence time, resulting in a finer grind product.

If you have to reduce the SAG mill speed because of avoiding liner breakage, maybe it's better to modify the shell lifter design. Low speed may cause decreasing capacity, higher steel ball and liner wear rate. D80 of SAG mill may be finer because of more cascading action and less capacity which results in more retention time in SAG mill.
