Mill Type Overview. Three types of mill design are common. The Overflow Discharge mill is best suited for fine grinding to 75 – 106 microns.; The Diaphram or Grate Discharge mill keeps coarse particles within the mill for additional grinding and typically used for grinds to 150 – 250 microns.; The Center-Periphery Discharge mill has feed reporting from both ends and the product discharges ...

AG/SAG mills can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or three stages of crushing and screening, a rod mill, and some or all of the work of a ball mill. Because of the range of mill sizes available, AG/SAG milling can often be accomplished with fewer lines than in a conventional rod mill/ball mill circuit. A diagram of types of AG/SAG ...

Following extensive feasibility studies, a high pressure grinding roll (HPGR)-ball milling circuit was selected based on the reduced power requirements and thus reduced operating expenses. The HPGR-ball mill circuit was estimated to require 75% of the energy of a standard semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill circuit.

In a simple grinding circuit there will be a ball mill and a classifier. Some circuits, especially in large mills, have more units or two or three stages of grinding, but whatever is said here will apply to the complicated circuits as well as the simple ones. The two types of ball mill in general use are the grate mill and the open-end mill ...
