### AG & SAG Mill Grinding Circuit Automatic Control

Mar 09, 2018 Regardless of the instrument employed, the trend of the load signal in conjunction with the power signal trend can be used to determine the location of the mill on the power/load curve, and allow the operator or control system to make decisions as to adjustment of the feed rate.

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

SAG mill is usually used to grind large pieces into small pieces, especially for the pre-processing of grinding circuits, thus also known as primary stage grinding machine. Based on the high throughput and coarse grind, AG mills produce coarse grinds often classify mill discharge with screens and trommel.

### Semi Autogenius Grinding (SAG) Mill
