Optimizing your SAG mill operation - International Mining

Mar 21, 2007  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.

Increase throughput and capacity in SAG mills

Every second counts with SAG mill optimisation. The loudest silence occurs when your SAG mill is standing still. It is the sound of rising costs by the hour both from the downtime itself and from maintenance costs. Optimising the capacity of your SAG mill is crucial to avoiding downtime and liner wear and damage.

Key considerations when selecting a mill lining system

Jan 27, 2020  SAG mills generate higher levels of impact reduction and ball mills higher levels of abrading action. A mill lining system serves two purposes: to protect the mill shell from wear caused by the impact and abrasion of the mill charge, and to elevate and tumble the mill contents in the necessary manner to create a grinding action.

Mill (grinding) - Wikipedia

SAG mill. SAG is an acronym for semi-autogenous grinding. SAG mills are autogenous mills that also 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' (12.8m) in diameter, powered by a

SAG Mill Liner Design - Mineral Processing Metallurgy

Jun 06, 2016  Based on experience, mill-liner designs have moved toward more open-shell lifter spacing, increased pulp lifter volumetric capacity, and a grate design to facilitate maximizing both pebble-crushing circuit utilization and SAG mill capacity. As a guideline, mill throughput is maximized with shell lifters between ratios of 2.5:1 and 5.0:1.

Throughput optimisation in milling circuits

If the mill feed setpoint is changed, then the actual feed rate needs to stabilise at the new target in a short period of time. The feed rate setpoint can then be tied into a SAG mill power optimisation strategy. SAG mill discharge control is quite involved due to few interactive variables, such as mill discharge sump level, classification ...
