SAG Mill Process Control - Grinding Classification ...

If the SAG mill is not intended to be the rate-limiting step in a process plant, then it is best to adjust the SAG load (and power) to hold a constant tonnage to satisfy another constraint elsewhere. Underground mines are an example: the hoisting capacity of the mine shaft is the rate-limiting step in the process, and the SAG mill must adapt to what the shaft can supply. So yes, there are ...

Difference Between Sag Mill vs Ball Mill - mech4study

12/10/2017  The ball charge of a SAG mill is about 9% to 20%.This process takes place inside the large rotating drum of SAG mill which is filled with balls partially. Interior of the drum uses the lifting plates. These plates inside the drum are responsible for picking the grinding material up to fall down again throughout the rotations. Repeated collisions between the steel balls and raw materials (ore ...

Optimizing your SAG mill operation - International Mining

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. Similar to the impeller design affecting pump capacity, the pulp ...

Throughput optimisation in milling circuits

SAG mill discharge control is quite involved due to few interactive variables, such as mill discharge sump level, classification hydro-cyclone variables (feed density, flow and pressure) and water feed rate to the sump. Model predictive control (MPC), which is a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) controller, is very suitable for this purpose. If a particle size analyser is installed it can be ...
