Our experts welcome the opportunity to assist you with circuit and circuit control design as well as startup, operation, and optimization of your mill.
The SAG mill appeared to be the bottleneck in the flowsheet as the power in the SAG was consistently high and approaching the full motor power, while the ball mills were consistently operating at less than 75% of installed power.
Model Predictive Control for SAG Milling in Minerals Processing | 5 Model Predictive Control on a SAG Mill and Ball Mills The solution for the SAG Mill is an adaptive controller which controls mill load using direct mill weight measurement or indirectly from bearing oil pressure.
AN UPDATED DATA SET FOR SAG MILL POWER MODEL CALIBRATION *A. G. Doll Logan Lake, Canada ABSTRACT This paper expands the SAG mill survey database published by the Author at Procemin 2013. The new database includes 49 published SAG/AG mill surveys and includes mills from all over the world. The
SAG is an acronym for semiautogenous grinding. SAG mills are autogenous mills that also use grinding balls like a ball mill. A SAG mill is usually a primary or first stage grinder. SAG mills use a ball charge of 8 to 21%. The largest SAG mill is 42' () in diameter, powered by a 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor.
the correct power required to grind ore in a SAG mill, by developing ore hardness variability functions for the ore body to be mined. This paper describes the next step in the SAG design process, which is choosing a SAG mill to accomplish the required specified design performance.
The three SAG mill models are benchmarked and reviewed in: Doll, , A comparison of SAG mill power models, Procemin 2013; Austin SAG Model. The Austin SAG model was published in: Austin, , A mill power equation for SAG mills, Minerals Metallurgical Processing; Society for Mining, Metallurgy Exploration, February 1990. Morrell Models
other methods. The ball mill correction factor (CFnet) is empirical and one way of estimating it was presented by Amelunxen at the Procemin 2013 Short Course by Doll Amelunxen. The SGI equation uses a transfer size between a SAG and ball mill; it is proposed that a synthetic transfer size of 2100 µm be used to model singlestage SAG mills. ˇ
Oct 12, 2017· In ancient time, the mills were operated with muscle power (by hands), water animals and wind. They were totally based on the mechanical energy by natural resources and living are many types of mills which are used in the grinding industries. Today we will discuss about two important mill, sag mill and ball mill.

SAG Mill Circuit Example – Gold Processing SAG mill circuit example for gold processing [image: (13563)] AG/SAG Mill. AG/SAG mills are normally used to grind runoffmine ore or primary crusher product. Wet grinding in an AG/SAG mill is accomplished in a slurry of 50 to 80 percent solids. 2D and 3D simulations of particles in a SAG Mill
The designs of autogenous and semiautogenous (SAG) grindings mills are described followed by the description of their methods of operation in grinding circuits involving crushers and ball mills. Methods of estimating SAG mill volumes, mill charges, feed size and power consumptions and optimum speeds of rotation during operation are described.
Advances in Discrete Element Method Application to Grinding Mills 119 to 2D nonspherical to 3D slice to 3D full (Cleary et al. 2003) the prediction of shoulder angle, toe angle, power and vortex center increasingly improved. Obviously, these findings point in the direction of 3D DEM for full scale charge motion plus breakage studies.
In these circuits the SAG mill is the largest energy consumer. In many engineering projects either a power equation and/or a specific energy equation are used for the designing of these mills but not always with acceptable results.
