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

Attrition between grinding balls and ore particles causes grinding of finer particles SAG mills are characterized by their large diameter and short length as compared to ball mills The inside of the mill is lined with lifting plates to lift the material inside the mill, where it then falls off the plates onto the rest of the ore charge SAG mills are primarily used at gold, copper and platinum mines with applications

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

The working principle of the selfgrinding machine is basically the same as the ball mill, the biggest difference is that the sag grinding machine uses the crushed material inside the cylinder as the grinding medium, the material constantly impacts and grinding to gradually pulverize Sometimes, in order to improve the processing capacity of the mill, a small amount of steel balls be added appropriately, usually occupying 23% of the volume of the mill (that is semiautogenous grinding)
