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.

with impact, so solid liners begin to squeeze together and become extremely difficult to remove, and can damage a mill shell if the stress is allowed to build up to an extreme level. 2. Low Carbon Chrome Moly Steel (300 to 370BHN): Was generally used for mill liners (AG, SAG and Ball) prior to the movement to higher carbon content steels.

Ebrahimi-Nejad and Fooladi have studied analytically the motion of steel balls in SAG mill; it was shown that as the lifter height or the coefficient of friction increases, the impact position tends to move upward, but the maximum impact force caused by cascade motion in a dry mill of 10 m diameter, decreases.

Sag angle is the angle of horizontal lifeline sag when a fall occurs. If the lifeline is tight, it won't sag much when a fall occurs, but the impact force on the lifeline will be higher. Impact force, as used in this context, is the force or "shock" imparted to a lifeline by the attached lanyard. If the lifeline is not so tight, it will sag ...

What I mean is that volumetric harness should be soft core hardness. As you know these kinds of steel balls are resistant to impact but at a certain radius (worn balls) the spherical shape of balls will be change to irregular shapes which can affect grinding efficiency badly. So the ball size distribution inside SAG mill will be incomplete.

The impact creates a force 57 times gravity!! Impact Force from a Falling Object. The dynamic energy in a falling object at the impact moment when it hits the ground can be calculated as. E = F w h = m a g h (4) where . F w = force due to gravity - weight (N, lb f) a g = acceleration of gravity (9.81 m/s 2, 32.17405 ft/s 2) h = falling height (m)

SAG mill balls experience both significant abrasive and impact wear due to their large (75 – 100 mm) diameters. Ball mill balls experience a greater number of impacts, but at lower magnitude than SAG mill balls, due to the smaller ball size, and smaller mill diameter. Feeds are typically highly abrasive, ...
