### Flexible milling and grinding solutions that last FL

For the mining industry our semi-autogenous (SAG) grinding mill uses a minimal ball charge in the range of 6-15 percent. It is primarily used in the gold copper and platinum industries as well as in the lead zinc silver and nickel industries. Autogenous (AG) grinding mills involve no grinding media as the ore itself acts as the grinding media. Our ball mills are the most robust design in

Grinding is one of the most energy-consuming processes in the mining industry. As a critical part of the comminution process autogenous grinding (AG) or semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mills are often used for primary grinding. However the breakage mechanism of an AG/SAG mill is inefficient in grinding particles of a certain size typically in the range of 25-55 mm i.e. pebbles.
