SAG mill ball charge determination and its influence on ...

1990-5-24  In semi-autogenous grinding (SAG), the grinding mill inventory, (i.e. volume of total charge, volume of ball charge, etc.) is important in determining the optimum operating condition for maximum production (tph), minimum specific energy (kwh/t) or lowest cost ($/t). A two-dimensional graphical method is presented for determining the actual ball charge within the total charge when parameters ...

2021-11-22  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.
