BrainWave SAG mill - ANDRITZ

BrainWave is ideally suited to stabilize the operation of SAG mills. Effective grinding in a SAG mill depends largely on how it is loaded. A mill containing too much material does not allow for adequate movement of the ore and balls. A mill that does not contain enough material does not take advantage of the autogenous grinding mechanism.
