Rod mill charges usually occupy about 45% of the internal volume of the mill. A closely packed charge of single sized rods will have a porosity of 9.3%. With a mixed charge of small and large diameter rods, the porosity of a static load could be reduced even further. However, close packing of the charge rarely occurs and an operating bedChanging sag mill liners type from Hi-Low to Hi-Hi at,2021-12-2 · SAG mill, the 3-D model in DEM was developed.
