The decision to go single stage or two stage grinding is generally dictated by the product required. A guide based on grind size follows: xCoarse Grind – coarser than 80% passing 106 m. If determined to be reasonably power-efficient, single stage SAG milling is likely to be a comparatively profitable grinding circuit design.
The SAG mill critical speed is the rotational speed at which gravitational and centrifugal forces are equal, stopping the impacts between grinding media and rocks. The circulating load represents the ratio of ore mass flow rate passing through the mill to that feeding the plant. In practice, its estimation requires mass balance calculations.
Aug 01, 2018 Optimize SAG milling with customised grinding ball design. The sheer size and scale of new ore processing operations, with their associated desire to substantially increase product throughput, means that primary SAG mills have grown to larger capacities. Paul Peng, CEO and chief metallurgist at Sino Grinding Industries (SGI), emphasizes it is ...
This paper discusses the process design and layout of the Constancia Project comminution circuit. The circuit consists of a 60 x 113 primary crusher, two 16 MW SAG mills and two 16 MW ball mills. All four mills are twin pinion with wound rotor motor and gearbox drives. Provision for pebble crushing is
LG A mill power equation for SAG mills. Minerals and Metallurgical Processing. Feb 1990 pp57-62. Gross power No load power Net power drawn by the charge (8.13) The net power is calculated from Net power KD2.5L e! c./ Watts (8.14) In equation 8.14, D is the diameter inside the mill liners and Le is the effective length of the mill including the ...
SAG mill design, GMD design and the associated component manufacturing. This paper also addresses, ... of grinding weld surfaces requires no defined shapes or a minimum radius, etc., and thus provides only a small (in stress terms) improvement to the hot spot allowable stress. For
grinding, to single stage crushing and semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) and ball mill (SAB) circuits. This progression has, not necessarily, been accompanied by an improvement in the efficiency of power utilisation in achieving the target grind size, but has seen an improvement in the overall efficiency of mineral processing as
Jan 01, 2016 A typical SAG-HPGR-Ball mill circuit suggested by Patzelt et al. is shown in Figure 9.6, where the pebbles from the SAG mill are crushed in the high-pressure grinding rolls. It is a general observation that SAG mills are helpful for grinding where wide variations in …
SGI leads the market with technical design and quality control of SAG and ball mill grinding media production. Our approach is to work with customers to improve performance by: Decreasing steel consumption, Decreasing cost per tonne of ore milled, Improving grind (particle distribution), and; Increasing throughput. See more on our PRODUCTS page.

Semi-Autogenous Grinding (SAG) mill and a ball mill. The SAG mill circuit also includes ... simulation and optimization of the existing design. This could be achieved by modification of the operating conditions such as reduction of SAG screen aperture from 12 mm to 10 mm, reduction of vortex finder from 280 mm to 270.3 mm, reduction of ...
Mar 21, 2007 Similar to the impeller design affecting pump capacity, the pulp lifter design affects the discharge capacity (or mill throughput) of AG and SAG grinding mills. Generally, the discharge from AG/SAG mills consists of one or both of the following components: slurry (water and finer particles) and pebbles (20-100 mm).
Nov 26, 2019 SAG mill is usually used to grind large pieces into small pieces, especially for the pre-processing of grinding circuits, thus also known as primary stage grinding machine. Based on the high throughput and coarse grind, AG mills produce coarse grinds …
For semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mills, there are two basic forms of testing: single particle breakage and tumbling tests designed to recreate the actual mill environment. For high pressure grinding rolls and regrind mill sizing, a specific test designed for that piece of equipment is best.
supported grinding mills up to the largest sizes. SAG/ball mill circuit incorporating pebble crushers and a POLYCOM high-pressure grinding roll. SAG and ball mill for gold ore grinding. One of three SAG mills with 9.75 m diameter and 2 x 4000 kW drive power. These mills operate in conjunction with ball mills for iron ore grinding in Iran.

What is a SAG mill? The structure of the SAG mill (semi-automatic grinding mill) and the AG mill (autogenous grinding mill)are exactly the same, except that a certain proportion of auxiliary grinding media such as steel balls or steel rods are added as needed. During the process of the AG mill operation, some ores with diameters greater than 20mm but less than 80mm are not easily ground.
Autogenous (AG) and Semi Autogenous (SAG) grinding mills are the conventional selection for large-scale grinding circuits. It is accepted that these forms of comminution are not the most energy efficient available. This efficiency combined with escalating energy prices, steel prices and the requirement to process larger, lower grade deposits has necessitated that better comminution techniques ...
