Choosing a SAG Mill to Achieve Design Performance

A further explanation is required to explain the importance of designing the SAG mill chamber to draw required power at optimum operating conditions of 75% critical speed and less than 30% by volume load. Recent studies in the three-foot diameter SAG mill are instructive. The following graph shows the relevant facts as Figure 2.
