### Difference Between Sag Mill vs Ball Mill mech4study

Oct 12, 2017 SAG mill make use of steel balls included with some large and hard rocks for grinding. These mills utilize the balls in making the large fragments of materials broken into pieces. The ball charge of a SAG mill is about 9% to 20%.This process takes place inside the large rotating drum of SAG mill which is filled with balls partially.

### Mill (grinding) Wikipedia

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.

GMDs quickly moved from 20’ ball mills, expanding to 24, 25 and then 26’ mills. In early

### Cast Grinding Steel Balls

The number of impacts in primary ball mills are far more frequent but have less magnitude than those experienced in SAG mills. The increased frequency is due to the Increase in charge volume (35 40% versus 5 10%), higher mill speeds, and the larger number of balls per unit charge weight.
