Jan 01, 2005 Ball-Mill Circuit Operation. Very often in SAG circuits, the ball-mill circuit is neglected. In many operations where economics dictate that throughput is worth more economically than the required sacrifice in grind, the focus shifts to throughput so much that the available ball-mill power is not used to the fullest extent.

SAG mill. 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%. The largest SAG mill is 42' (12.8m) in diameter, powered by a 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor.

Optimum ball charge in a SAG mill is a function of many factors. Some are discussed below. For a SAB or SABC circuit. In general, the higher the ball charge the higher the throughput (and fine feed helps as well). Of course, you need a bigger ball mill. But, high ball loads mean higher ball consumption in the circuit.
