The discharge grates of the SAG mill were identified as a key component in the SABC circuit, and their design is a crucial factor in the mill’s performance [17,18,19,20,21]. The initial design of the grate section caused a serious accumulation of pebbles within the

Mill power draw models

The design of mill liners and SAG mill discharge grates will have a large effect on how efficiently the mill operates and the circuit throughput. All models generally assume that a mill is fitted with "efficient" liners and that the grate design neither limits passage of pebbles (and pulp) nor permits re-circulation of pulp back into the mill.

Difference Between Sag Mill vs Ball Mill

SAG mill make use of steel balls included with some large and hard rocks for grinding. These mills utilize the balls in making the large fragments of materials broken into pieces. The ball charge of a SAG mill is about 9% to 20%.This process takes place inside the large rotating drum of SAG mill which is …

SAG Mill

 · The SAG Mill is a machine added by Ender IO. It uses Micro Infinity (µI) to grind (or mill) items into their crushed variants, like Ores into Dusts. The SAG Mill has four output slots; recipes can have 1-4 different outputs, with different chances of obtaining those outputs. Uniquely, the SAG Mill can use Grinding Balls made from various materials to increase energy efficiency (resulting in ...

Dynamic modeling and simulation of a SAG mill for mill …

 · The modeling and simulation of semiautogenous (SAG) mills have been widely used in the design and optimization of mill performance in terms of its power draw, processing capacity and product size distribution. However, these models are solved under steady approximation and do not provide any information on mill charge distribution in real time. This paper attempts to characterize mill contents ...
