AG/SAG mills can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or three stages of crushing and screening a rod mill and some or all of the work of a ball mill. Because of the range of mill sizes available AG/SAG milling can often be accomplished with fewer lines than in a conventional rod mill/ball mill circuit. A diagram of types of AG/SAG Ball Mill and Grinding Circuit Emergency Shutdown. In the event of an emergency the mill feed conveyor is shut down individually or by stopping the operating cyclone feed pump. The ball mill must be shut down separately. All equipment shutdowns are performed locally or from the MCC located in the mill control room.
