Freeing up milling capacity in a SAG mill & ball mill circuit

Jul 21, 2016 The throughput capacity and efficiency of a SAG mill are affected by the significant recirculated load derived from oversize discharge product (critical size 'pebble" discharge) that is screened out and may be stockpiled or requires secondary crushing prior to reintroduction to the SAG mill feed. Where the

Grinding Mill Types, Construction, and Usage Grinding Mills

Hence a rod mill generally precedes a ball mill in a grinding circuit especially where a fine size product is required. Ball Mills: The final stages of comminution are performed in tumbling mills using steel balls as the grinding medium and so designated "ball mills." Since balls have a greater surface area per unit weight than
