The mill is filled with a suitable grinding media and the area between each disc is essentially an individual grinding chamber. As a result the mill is effectively 8 grinding chambers in series. The media is set in motion by the action of the grinding discs which radially accelerate the media towards the shell.
Jan 20, 2021 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.
