predicted. Slurry pooling causes the power draw in AG and SAG mills to be lower than a mill without a slurry pool. This phenomenon results in overflow mills usually drawing less power than grate discharge mills that are operating without a slurry pool. This is because by definition overflow mills operate all of the time with a slurry pool.

More DetailsJun 06, 2016 SAG mills have a higher installed power density for a given plant footprint relative to AC mills. With the combination of finer grind and a lower installed power density (based on the lower density of the mill charge), a typical AG mill has a lower throughput, a lower power draw, and produces a finer grind.
