Semi-autogenous (SAG), rod and ball mills. As well as the total specific energy it will also predict the specific energy of the crushing section, the HPGR section and the tumbling mill section separately. Hence, for example, in the case of …


Optimise your mill capacity and throughput. Increase liner life and cut replacement downtime. Cut energy costs. Reduce safety risks to employees. Optimise SAG mill capacity and avoid unnecessary downtime. SAG mills are the main workhorses …


All AG/SAG mills using radial or curved pulp lifters suffer from inherent material transport problems such as slurry and pebble pooling, which decrease throughput and increase energy consumption. The TPL completely eliminates slurry pooling and pebble pooling problems and ensures the best grinding conditions, thus allowing AG/SAG mills to ...


Since the early 1980s, we have been designing and manufacturing Semi Autogenous Mill (SAG Mill) and Autogenous Mill (AG Mill) under the Fuller-Traylor brand. Semi-autogenous grinding uses a minimal ball charge in the range of 6-15% while autogenous grinding uses ore only. SAG and AG Mills operate by lifting ore/grinding media and dropping it on ...


Especific energy modelling SAG mills operation data abstract Comminution, particularly milling, is on average the largest consumer of energy in mining. Actual com-minution circuits consist in most of the cases in coarse crushing, SAG milling, pebble crushing and sec-ondary ball milling. In these circuits the SAG mill is the largest energy ...


SAG mills mimic the same shortcoming. It follows that in order to obtain the specifi c energy (SE) to achieve a certain transfer size, based on the 80 per cent passing value, an ineffi ciency factor must be applied to the SE of single stage ball mills, rod mills or AG/SAG mills when calculating power according to the Bond Third Theory method.

SAG vs Ball Mills - COMESA

The final outcome is that the overall energy available for each ton of processed material remains constant without affecting the distribution of product sizes. Disadvantages of SAG Mills: Less disposal time in crushing plants (90% vs 95%) More instability for operations (high fluctuations) Higher energy consumption


providing operating data for 3 semi -autogenous grinding (SAG) mills and 4 ball mills. Results show on. average that 7 9% of the supplied electrical energy converts to heat absorbed by the slurry ...


applied to the pilot plant data when selecting the SAG mill shell and motor size. Upon resolution of issues related to the mill motor and lifter design, the project only just managed to achieve the target throughput of 17 Mt/y (Figure 1). The contributing factors to higher than expected SAG mill specific energy (lower throughput) were:


An optimization is carried out to minimize the yearly cost of energy for the operation of the SAG mill. This cost includes the energy consumption cost in $/kWh and the capital cost for the PV-BESS infrastructure, prorated over the life of the battery system, accounting for the discount rate through an annuity factor (Pamparana et al. 2019a, b).The energy requirements are …


Using LSTM and GRU to predict SAG mill energy consumption1 Sebastian Avalos ([email protected]) Willy Kracht ([email protected]) Julian M. Ortiz ([email protected]) Abstract In mine operations, comminution is the most demanding energy consumer. Within comminution, semi-autogenous grinding mills are by far the most …


The main objective of this work is the development of mathematical models able to be used as predictive tools to optimise power consumption and/or specific energy in actual SAG mills, assuming that the ore competence was already included in the basic design of the mills (for example using DW i in the specific energy equation (Morrell, 2004 ...


Improving Energy Efficiency in SAG Mills Pilot-Scale SAG Mill Facility Will Help to Optimize Charge Motion and Slurry Flow in Plant-Scale SAG Mills - Reducing Energy Consumption The U.S. mining industry operates approximately 80 semi-autogenous grinding mills (SAG) throughout the United States. Both mine and mill site variables determine SAG ...


Gearless mill drive (GMD) technology has further expanded the use of large SAG milling allowing Outotec to produce the world's largest SAG mill of 42' in diameter drawing power at 28 MW. Today, Outotec is the world leading supplier of gearless SAG mills operating globally.

cyclone underflow and reduced the SAG mill specific energy from 20.66 to 16 kWh/t and the investment has a payback period of 1 year and a month, in 10 years the project would have earned the company more than 15 million dollars of profit. It was also observed from the plant survey that there was a high re circulating load of fine material to ...


SAG Mill Optimization using Model Predictive Control ANDRITZ AUTOMATION Semi-Autogenous Grinding mills can be optimized for maximum ore throughput or maximum grinding energy efficiency. SAG mill, model predictive control, MPC, expert systems, optimization, Laguerre


literature for other single stage SAG or AG mills were then evaluated in the same four models. Power-based comminution models are used to predict the specific energy consumption (CEE) of a comminution circuit, E, as kW·h/t, where a laboratory measurement of grindability is input.


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. In general these equations are used to predict power consumption as a function of mill size, level and density of ...
