### What's the Difference Between SAG Mill and Ball Mill ...

Both the autogenous grinding mill and the ball mill feed parts are welded with groove and embedded inner wear-resistant lining plate. As the sag mill does not contain grinding medium, the abrasion and impact on the equipment are relatively small. The feed of the ball mill contains grinding balls.

Get PriceEmail contact### What is the difference between a SAG mill and ball 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%. [6] [7] The largest SAG mill is 42′ (12.8m) in diameter, powered by a 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor. [8] A SAG mill with a 44 ...
