Get PriceApr 17, 2018 Figure 3a and 3b gives the results of the computer calculation. The mill power at the pinionshaft for a 30% volume charge is the sum of: Figures 3a & 3b give the power for an autogenous mill. Figures 4a and 4b are for the same size mill with a ball charge of
May 24, 1990 May 24, 1990 In semi-autogenous grinding (SAG), the grinding mill inventory, (i.e. volume of total charge, volume of ball charge, etc.) is important in determining the optimum operating condition for maximum production (tph), minimum specific energy (kwh/t) or lowest cost ($/t). A two-dimensional graphical method is presented for determining the actual ball charge within the total
Jan 01, 2015 The ball charge is a function of the bulk fraction of the SAG mill volume (Jb) occupied by balls; the ore retained in the mill is the result of the volumetric filling which depends on the ore size distribution (specially the % +6″ and the % −6″ +1″), on the rotational speed (N/Nc) and on the solid concentration by weight fraction inside
to the detailed accounting of ball charge motion. The Introduction gives a description of the proposed approxi-mation of ball charge position in a rotating drum and its depen-dence on the mill velocity. In what follows, the mathematical ap-paratus used for the forecasting calculation of capacities of the drum shell and cone is presented
Mar 08, 2013 To calculate grinding media charge for continuous type ball mill, M = 0.000676 x D2 x L Example
semiautogenous grinding (SAG) mills and is the fourth paper in a series of five papers on Inferential Measurement of SAG Mill Parameters. The development of the inferential measurement models of SAG mill discharge and feed streams and mill rock and ball
Mill Volume Filling Calculation. ... Enter the number of lifters that are exposed above the mill charge. Fractions are acceptable and should be used in the case where the charge does not sit uniformly in the mill. For example, you may have 29 rows exposed at the discharge end of the mill, and only 28 exposed at the feed end
one SAG mill (9.75 dia.(m)*3.88 length(m)) following two parallel ball mills (5dia.(m)*7lenght(m)). The aim of this research work was to investigate on the ball filling estimation of Miduk semi-autogenous (SAG) Mill via an utilized method. Miduk SAG Mill circuit is shown in Figure 1. Figure 1: Diagram of Miduk Copper Complex
steel balls in a ball mill, or large lumps of ore in an autogenous mill or a mixture in a semi-autogenous mill, as well as the slurry that makes up the operating charge. Let Jt be the fraction of the mill volume that is occupied by the total charge, Jb the fraction of the mill volume that is occupied by steel balls and E the voidage of the balls
Ball-limited circuits (where the T 80 hits the lower limit) will result in the charge level in the SAG mill dropping until its power draw matches the throughput limit dictated by the ball mill. It is important to realize that once the SAG mill charge level drops to be equal to the ball charge, the model will be operating out of range and the
EF5BM=[ P80+10.3 1.145 P80] ( 3 ) The EF4 formula requires both the rod mill and ball mill work index (rod mill Wi is used to calculate the optimal feed size) and because this is a “single-stage ball mill” calculation, the F80 is actually the rod mill feed size (10,000 m) from Table 1 and the P80 is the ball mill circuit product. The EF5 factor only applies below 75 m to ball
2006). The laboratory bench-scale SAG mill reproduces operating conditions of a commercial SAG mill, in a closed circuit dry grinding environment. The ground product for the laboratory SAG mill is then submitted to the Bond ball mill work index test. The number of
Ball Mill Critical Speed - Mineral Processing & Metallurgy. Get price; Effect of SAG Mill Feed Size Distribution and Ore Variability SAG … operating mill speed of 74% of critical. SAG mill availability was expected to be 94%, giving an annual processing rate of 17Mtpa of monzonite ore. As the deposit contains around 9 percent of a harder
Apr 17, 2018 Current operational results show that the SAG mill is operating at 5% ball charge level by volume and is delivering a K80 800 micron product as predicted. Power drawn at the pinion is 448 kW, 13.617 kWh/tonne (SAG mill) and 570 kW, 17.325 kWh/tonne (ball mill) when processing 32.9 mtph, for a total of 30.942 kWh/tonne or 14.6% above the conventional estimate
