## What is the difference between a SAG mill and ball mill?

SAG is an acronym for semiautogenous 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%[6][7] The largest SAG mill is 42′2016 6 6· However, open circuiting the SAG mill by feeding crushed pebbles directly to a ballmill circuit is often considered as a technique to increase SAG throughput An option to do both can allow balancing the primary and secondary milling sections by having the ability to return crushed pebbles to SAG feed as per a conventional flowsheet, or to the SAGSAG Mill Grinding Circuit Design2016 7 8· Where the SAG mill/ball mill circuit is the bottleneck in the processing plant the pebble circuit can be a significant factor in limiting overall plant capacity The pebble circuit recirculating load can be very significant (depending on the ore characteristics and SAG millFreeing up milling capacity in a SAG mill & ball mill circuit
