- balls loading optimization on sag and ball mill

2007-3-21 As a result, mines have shifted their emphasis in optimization from ball mills to SAG mills. The rock load in the mill essentially depends on ore characteristics and the discharge rate of broken particles through the discharge end. The discharge rate depends on how efficiently the discharge pump (grate and pulp lifters) operates.

More2010-4-23 Optimization of mill performance by using online ball and pulp measurements by B. Clermont* and B. de Haas* Synopsis Ball mills are usually the largest consumers of energy within a mineral concentrator. Comminution is responsible for 50% of the total mineral processing cost. In today’s global markets, expanding mining groups are trying

MoreThis paper is based on the kinetic theory of ore and steel balls in the SAG Mill and theoretical research of power consumption. Orthogonal method is taken to design experimental plan while effective power of the SAG Mill, collision times between steel balls and the SAG Mill and collision times between steel balls and ore are designed as optimal objectives.

MoreThe in-mill load volume and slurry solids concentration have significant influence on the ball mill product size and energy expenditure. Hence, better energy efficiency and quality grind can only be achieved with correct tuning of these influential operational factors to the desired optimum point.

More2013-9-8 The SAG Mill has a “small” circulation load of oversize given be the 3/8″ trommel screen and the 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ discharge grates. The load of 4″ balls in this SAG is “good” but un-measured. SAG Ball consumption is “average” at 400 g/t while Ball Mill grinding media (3″ balls) usage in 550 g/t.

The energy specific cumulative grinding rate at each screen size is calculated from a torque-mill test as in the example that follows. Torque mill solids load during test: 11.25 kg (24.8 lb) of ball mill feed sample from plant survey. Sample is reconstituted with water to be

More2017-10-12 SAG mill make use of steel balls included with some large and hard rocks for grinding. These mills utilize the balls in making the large fragments of materials broken into pieces. The ball charge of a SAG mill is about 9% to 20%.This process takes place inside the large rotating drum of SAG mill

More2021-7-27 Considering that worn balls in an industrial mill charge constitute about 15 to 40 percent and that the highest difference in breakage rate observed being nine percent for purely one shape charge; it is very doubtful whether it is worthwhile in attempting to develop techniques for removing worn balls from the mill.

The solution automatically controls ore master feed rate and water addition to increase throughput, while keeping mill load within

Moreproduct size, mill throughput, make-up ball size, mill speed, liner profile and ball addition rates. At the same time, it can also be used to design balls and liner systems that can survive longer in the mill. The technological advances made in electronics and communication makes this leap in instrumentation certainly viable. Hence, the

More2021-3-26 the SAG mill. This work will look at the effect of removing fine material in the cyclone underflow through fine screening to reduce the re-circulating load. Possible installation of a ball mill to treat the cyclone underflow on milled tonnage is also explored. Freda Rebecca consists of an underground mine and a processing plant.

MoreThe final plan was to increase the ball charge in the SAG and ball mill to 10% v / v and 27% v / v, respectively; set the upper limit of the operating power in the ball mill to 5800 kW; use a TRIO TC Series crusher (without a power-/feed rate–controlling device, but with a feed bin) to crush pebbles for recirculation back to the SAG mill feed ...

More2013-9-1 For the same amount of ball charge, the number of balls in the mill decreases as the ball size increases. Thus, the S values are lower for larger balls. However, larger balls are capable of breaking large particles; therefore, the size at which the S value becomes maximum, x m, increases as the ball size becomes larger.

Moreore particles. In a SAG mill, external grinding balls are added in the chamber to aid in the grinding process. Napier-Munn (Napier-Munn et al., 1996) classified the breakage mechanisms occurring within AG/SAG mills into three categories: high energy related impact breakage, low

More2009-7-30 the mill is used primarily to lift the load (medium and charge). Additional power is required to keep the mill rotating. 8.1.3 Power drawn by ball, semi-autogenous and autogenous mills A simplified picture of the mill load is shown in Figure 8.3 Ad this can be used to establish the essential features of a model for mill power.
