Ball Size as Initial Charge. Commercial ball sizes 10 150 mm; Number, size and mass of each ball size depends on mill load and whether or not the media is being added as the initial charge. For the initial chargin of a mill, Coghill and DeVaney (1937) defined the ball size as a function of the top size of the feed, i.e., dâ†“V = 0.40

Ball mills tumble iron or steel balls with the ore. The balls are initially 5–10 cm diameter but gradually wear away as grinding of the ore proceeds. The feed to ball mills (dry basis) is typically 75 vol.-% ore and 25% steel. The ball mill is operated in closed circuit with a particle-size measurement device and size-control cyclones.

As you know these kinds of steel balls are resistant to impact but at a certain radius (worn balls) the spherical shape of balls will be change to irregular shapes which can affect grinding efficiency badly. So the ball size distribution inside SAG mill will be incomplete. For compensating this issue, extra ball size can be added with top size.
