SAG MILL DISCHARGE SCREENS-TROMMEL vs VIBRATING Tony Moon, RTZ What I’d like to talk about is probably one of the nastiest bits of mill design for a grinding circuit, and that is the choice of what do you use on a SAG mill discharge? Do you use vibrating screens or trommel screens? What many of you probably don’t realize is that at
