    Alternatively, if high energy impacts are detected, the SAG mill speed is reduced to protect the liners. Although this works well in most scenarios, changes to the feed conditions (i.e. competency, size distribution) can shift the base layer reading for high energy impacts and create false positives or

    The feed size is usually between 20-30mm and the product size is 0-3mm. Feed. Both the autogenous grinding mill and the ball mill feed parts are welded with groove and embedded inner wear-resistant lining plate. As the sag mill does not contain grinding medium, the abrasion and impact on the equipment are relatively small.
