The mill building was energized with a temporary 25kV power line, which enabled interior and exterior lighting and also the use of critical components such as the overhead crane. The foundations for the Ball and SAG mills were prepared with concrete and grout works, as well as anchor bolt and sole plate installation.

In semi-autogenous grinding (SAG), the grinding mill inventory, (i.e. volume of total charge, volume of ball charge, etc.) is important in determining the optimum operating condition for maximum production (tph), minimum specific energy (kwh/t) or lowest cost ($/t). A two-dimensional graphical method is presented for determining the actual ball charge within the total charge when parameters ...

CHARGE LEVEL. Maintaining an optimum charge in a SAG mill remains one of the fundamentals for efficient mill processing. If the charge level or the ball to charge ratio is incorrect, breaking liners and/or increasing power consumption is inevitable and can only result in degraded mill efficiency.

The biggest characteristic of the sag mill is that the crushing ratio is large. The particle size of the materials to be ground is 300 ~ 400mm, sometimes even larger, and the minimum particle size of the materials to be discharged can reach 0.1 mm. …

Charge Motion inside a SAG Mill. For proper design of SAG mills and other types of grinding mills, the operating conditions have to be defined. Predicting the …

In ball milling applications, the diameter of the balls, mill and throw action of the charge provides a low-impact environment– hence maximum abrasion resistance of steel balls is the desired characteristic. CHEMISTRY & HARDNESS High carbon …

The ball charge and ore charge volume is a variable, subject to what is the target for that operation. The type of mill also is a factor as if it is an overflow mill (subject to the diameter of the discharge port) is usually up to about 40-45%. If it is a grate …

According to available literature, the operating speeds of AG mills are much higher than conventional tumbling mills and are in the range of 80–85% of the critical speed. SAG mills of comparable size but containing say 10% ball charge (in addition to the rocks), normally, operate between 70 and 75% of …

autogenous (SAG) Mill via an utilized method. Miduk copper concentrator is located in Kerman Province, Iran, and its size reduction stage includes one gyratory crusher which feeds one SAG mill (9.75 dia.(m)*3.88 length(m)) following two parallel ball mills (5dia.(m)*7lenght(m)). After SAG mill, a

We can calculate the steel charge volume of a ball or rod mill and express it as the % of the volume within the liners that is filled with grinding media. While the mill is stopped, the charge volume can be gotten by measuring the diameter inside the liners …

mill speed and shell liner/lifter simulations and, particularly, ball charge volume and ball top size, both of which are dependent upon the contingency applied to the transfer size in the SAG circuit product. Iterations of these para-meters can be performed in some models (e.g., DJB's "Reduced Recovery" and "Millpower2000") to determine

Low capital investment alternatives such as the optimisation of the SAG mills lifter/liner design, pulp lifters, ball charge level and ball size were studied in the SAG mill circuit as well as an ...

Ball-limited circuits (where the T 80 hits the lower limit) will result in the charge level in the SAG mill dropping until its power draw matches the throughput limit dictated by the ball mill. It is important to realize that once the SAG mill charge level drops to be equal to the ball charge, the model will be operating "out of range" and the ...

· Ball mill and sag mill girth gear, trunnion head. Both the ball mill and the sag mill can process non-metals, ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals, rare metals, etc., and are divided into dry and wet types to meet the needs of various materials.

The ball charge is a function of the bulk fraction of the SAG mill volume (Jb) occupied by balls; the ore retained in the mill is the result of the volumetric filling which depends on the ore size distribution (specially the % +6″ and the % −6″ +1″), on the rotational speed (N/Nc) and on the solid concentration by weight fraction inside ...

The ball charge of a SAG mill is about 29% to 30%. By friction and influence of tumbling balls inside rotating cylinder grinds the raw material to the required fineness. The internal machinery of ball mill grinds the raw material into the powder-like …

operation of SAG mills. SAG mills are currently the technology of choice in hard rock milling operations for reducing primary-crushed ore to ball mill feed. In recent years, the trend has been towards larger-sized SAG mills with diameters of 10.4 m (34 ft) and above, with the largest being 12.2 m (40 ft) in

The ball mill accepts the SAG or AG mill product. Ball mills give a controlled final grind and produce flotation feed of a uniform size. 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 ...
