For the mining industry, our semi-autogenous (SAG) grinding mill uses a minimal ball charge in the range of 6-15 percent. It is primarily used in the gold, copper and platinum industries as well as in the lead, zinc, silver, and nickel industries. …

Actual comminution circuits consist in most of the cases in coarse crushing, SAG milling, pebble crushing and secondary ball milling. 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 ...

The mill discharge from these mills consists of slurry, which goes to the ball mills for further grinding, and coarse pebbles/rocks, which are crushed and sent back to the mill. To maximize the capacity of these circuits, the general practice is to use grates with pebble ports (reaching 100 mm) instead of normal grate openings to increase the ...

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 ...

SAG Mill Discharge. Controlling the feed and discharge of a mill is mostly a stabilisation exercise – you need to be able to quickly and accurately control the mill feed rate. If the mill feed setpoint is changed, then the actual feed rate needs to stabilise at the new target in a short period of time. The feed rate setpoint can then be tied ...

water usage. The crushed ore is transferred to a semiautogenous (SAG) mill or ball mill where the ore is further reduced in size. Water is added to the ball mill, in which a slurry that usually contains from about 20 to 55 percent solids is produced (Singh, 2010; International Mining, 2011) (see fig. 2). The

where R = radius of ball mill; r = radius of ball. For R = 1000 mm and r = 50 mm, n c = 30.7 rpm. But the mill is operated at a speed of 15 rpm. Therefore, the mill is operated at 100 x 15/30.7 = 48.86 % of critical speed. If 100 mm dia balls are replaced by 50 mm dia balls, and the other conditions are remaining the same,

The "Critical Speed" for a grinding mill is defined as the rotational speed where centrifugal forces equal gravitational forces at the mill shell's inside surface. This is the rotational speed where balls will not fall away from the mill's shell. Result #1: This mill would need to spin at RPM to be at critical speed. Result #2: This mill's ...
