Model Predictive Control for SAG Milling in Minerals

SAG and ball mills are generally accepted as the largest power consumers in a mining and mineral processing operation and can be 80% of total electrical energy consumed at a specific power consumption of around 20kWh/tonApplication of Operating Work Indices in Autogenous ,limited value in evaluating AG-SAG and ball mill sections separately This problem arises due to the difficulty of This problem arises due to the difficulty of describing particle size distributions with different shapes by one number, the eighty percent passing sizeA Method of C alculating Autogenous/ Semi-Autogenous ,Rod mill and AG/SAG mill products are similar and tend to be not as steep as a 05 slope when plotted on log-log paper This is because the particle size distribution (PSD), these mills

Mill (grinding) - Wikipedia

SAG is an acronym for Semi-Autogenous Grinding SAG mills are autogenous mills but use grinding balls like a ball mill A SAG mill is usually a primary or first stage grinder SAG mills use a ball charge of 8 to 21% The largest SAG mill is 42' (128m) in diameter, powered by a 28 MW (38,000 HP) motorA Method of C alculating Autogenous/ Semi-Autogenous ,Rod mill and AG/SAG mill products are similar and tend to be not as steep as a 05 slope when plotted on log-log paper This is because the particle size distribution (PSD), these millsSAG Mill Optimization using Model Predictive Control,Maintaining the SAG mill weight at the optimum value is critical for achieving maximum grind rate efficiency and mill production (Powell, MS, van der Westhuizen, AP, & Mainza, AN 2009)

STARTLING EFFECT OF BALL SCATS REMOVAL ON SAG MILL

SAG mills, Morrell (1993) The mill with scats had a considerably finer size distribution, and notably lacks ball in the 40mm to 60mm size range This is the size at which the porosity is exposed, and they suddenly become smaller and non-spherical For a normal finer ball size distribution a finer grind and lower throughput would be expectedComminution Services - SGS,autogenous grinding as well as to SAG mill primary grinding In the SAG mill testwork when the steel is added the SAG product classification size and ore feed size distribution is varied If necessary, pebble crushing or mill speed can also be investigated All tests are evaluated on the basis of feed rate, power consumption and product size analysisACT Grinding Optimization System - Outotec,The Outotec ACT grinding optimization system utilizes feed particle size data from RockSense, charge analysis from MillSense, and slurry particle size measurements from PSI, as well as other available on-line measurements
