Optimisation of a Semiautogenous Grinding Mill through

Mill filling is an important operational parameter in a SAG mill circuit and by its control and optimisation it can produce significant improvements in production capacity and energy efficiency. However, it is industry practice to report mill load as the total output given by load cells, or kPa for systems based on lubriion bearing back

The mill will be driven by a Gearless Motor Drive (GMD) which, at 28.0MW, is equal to the largest grinding mill power ever used in the mining industry. The SAG mill design is based on Outotec's proprietary grinding mill technology, developed over decades for maximum reliability and performance.

Combine ABB's variablespeed drive system with advanced process control ABB Ability™ Expert Optimizer for grinding to provide maximum mill control. It can be applied to new or existing AG, SAG and ball mills, powered by either ringgeared mill drives (RMD) or gearless mill drives (GMD).

Autogenous and SemiAutogenous Mills ScienceDirect

An ore like quartzite is very competent and will not break up easily in an SAG mill. Soft and fragile ore like bauxite or specular hematite will break up relatively easily. Again, clayey and oxidised ore may be too soft to serve as a grinding medium and therefore are classified as incompetent ore.

Accurate measurements of the ball filling can only be made after the mill is ground out. In this case the mill is operated with the feed turned off until all of the ore has exited the mill.

Extended grinding curves are essential to the comparison

In both instances it has been found invaluable to initiate the study by developing a full grindcurve of the mill. For a SAG mill there are many variables against which a grindcurve can be developed. The ones that can be most readily varied, and are common control parameters, are mill speed, mill filling

Streamlining the Steps to Optimized Production: Project

SAG Mill Control . SAG mills can be optimized for maximum ore throughput or maximum grinding energy efficiency. In both cases, precise control of the mill filling percentage is critical (Wills and NapierMunn, 2006). Maintaining constant mill weight, as indied by bearing pressure, is one approach to stabilize the mill filling percentage.
