## Semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill liner design and ...

2016-6-6 · Semi-autogenous grinding mills (SAG mills) are tumbling mills that most commonly have a shell diameter-to-length ratio of around two. With this high aspect ratio, SAG mills generate both thrown and cascading ball-milling actions with shell linings shaped to lift and to throw alloy steel grinding balls of up to 150 mm (6 in.) in diameter. These

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

2019-11-26 · The biggest characteristic of the sag mill is that the crushing ratio is large. The particle size of the materials to be ground is 300 ~ 400mm, sometimes even larger, and the minimum particle size of the materials to be discharged can reach 0.1 mm. The calculation shows that the crushing ratio can reach 3000 ~ 4000, while the ball mill’s ...
