Difference Between Sag Mill vs Ball Mill

Difference Between Sag Mill vs Ball Mill

Ball mill is a fine grinder. A horizontal or vertical rotating cylinder which is filled partially with the balls of ceramics, small rocks and balls made from stainless steel. The ball charge of a SAG mill is about 29% to 30%. By friction and influence of tumbling balls inside rotating cylinder grinds the raw material to the required fineness.

Based on their results [42], it is concluded that the rate of amorphization depends strongly on the kinetic energy of the ball-mill charge and this depends on the number of opportunities for the powder particles to be reacted and interdiffused. Increasing the W b:W p ratio accelerates the rate of amorphization, which is explained by the increase in the kinetic energy of the ball-mill charge ...
