2. Lifters prevent slipping between the medium and slurry charge in the mill and the mill shell. Slippage will consume energy wastefully but more importantly it will reduce the ab ility of the mill shell to transmit energy to the tumbling charge. This energy is required to cause grinding of the material in the mill.
