mills in the older plants that had many mills in parallel. In fact this is generally still the case in the multi-stream plants, where mill liner design and selection is only tackled on a cost consumables basis. However, the gains to be had through good liner design and selection are just as great as on the large SAG mills.

An optimization is carried out to minimize the yearly cost of energy for the operation of the SAG mill. This cost includes the energy consumption cost in $/kWh and the capital cost for the PV-BESS infrastructure, prorated over the life of the battery system, accounting for the discount rate through an annuity factor (Pamparana et al. 2019a, b).The …

general, the bigger the mill diameter, the lower are the mill operating and critical speeds. Thus, for larger mills the number of poles will increase. As a result, the number of poles can vary from 48 to 72 poles (Fig. 3.) with typical mill speed requirements of about 10 rpm for larger SAG mills and about 15 rpm for smaller ball mills. Figure 3.

The crushed pebbles fall directly onto the SAG mill feed belt and return to the SAG mill. SAG mill product feeds two parallel ball mills of 6.6 m×11.1 m (internal diameter×length), each with a 9.7 MW twin pinion drive. The ball mills are operated at a ball charge volume of 30–32% and 78.5% critical speed.

SAG mill drives (as GMDs) by some operators and principal motor designers/manufacturers until the reasons for known problems in design or manufacturing were better understood and resolved. Accordingly, the latest 40 ft dia. SAG mill is rated at 29 MW and 78% C.S., with a 42 ft dia. mill built but not yet operational. The more recent option

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 …

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 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor.

E&MJ asked one of Australia's experts in SAG-mill liner technology, Dr. David Royston, about recent trends in SAG milling practice and how this has affected the design of liners. "In recent years, the trend to smaller top-size ore feed into SAG mills has been matched by a trend toward smaller but more balls in the SAG mill charge.

Answer (1 of 2): The mill liners is not wear-resistant and has a short service life: 1.The understanding of the working conditions is not comprehensive, and the understanding is not profound. For example, the strength hardness A×b value of the mineral, the ta value, the Bond power consumption va...

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 SAG mill which contributed to a decreased grinding efficiency.

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 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor.

Single stage SAG Mills are very beneficial in reducing CAPEX for plants with a staged throughput approach. When future tonnage is to be increased, the SAG Mill can feed downstream ball milling to boost capacity. Amstar SAG/AG Mills range in size from 4.3m through 12.2m in diameter with powers as high as 28,000 kW.

As an example, Fig. 3 shows the relationship between the capital cost and operating cost versus power of the SAG mill. Also the following equations show the capital and operating costs for SAG mill as an example: (5) SAG mill capital cost = (1.97 e + 004) × P 0.664 (6) SAG mill operating cost = 1.12 × P 0.730.

The SAG mill trommel screen provides a simple mechanism to classify large volumes of mill product.. Many designers and mill operators believe that the benefits of simplicity and the ability to handle throughputs in excess of 5 000 tph of solids make trommels the preferred equipment for this application.

Depending on the mill size the SAG mills draws between 2 MW and 17 MW. The product from the SAG mill is further reduced in size using pebble crushers and ball mills. Hence, typical gold or copper ore requires between 2.0 and 7.5 kWh per ton of …

Gearless mill drive (GMD) technology has further expanded the use of large AG milling allowing Outotec to produce the world's largest SAG mill of 42' in diameter drawing power at 28 MW. Today, Outotec is the world leading supplier of gearless AG mills operating globally.

In this case, an AG or SAG mill may be appropriate. For smaller throughput scenarios, a three-stage crushing plus rod mill plus Vertimill may make the most sense. It all depends on the ore ...

The biggest characteristic of the sag mill is that the crushing ratio is large. The particle size of the materials to be ground is 300 ~ 400mm, sometimes even larger, and the minimum particle size of the materials to be discharged can reach 0.1 mm. The calculation shows that the crushing ratio can reach 3000 ~ 4000, while the ball mill's ...

During bolt tensioning trials, MPS brought in a pulp lifter liner, configured with M48 liner bolts, from a 36-foot SAG mill. The test jig was used to calibrate actual torque/bolt load and, through proper lubrication, get it closer to the calculated torque/bolt loads to reduce the variation in the bolt loads achieved.

Lower lifetime cost. The range of mill sizes and versatile applications allow SAG milling to be accomplished with fewer lines than conventional set-ups. This, in turn, contributes to lower capital and maintenance costs for a SAG mill circuit. Versatile applications. SAG milling extends itself to many applications due to the range of mill sizes ...

Control of -SemiAutogenous Grinding(SAG) mill weight is an example of an important process that exhibits many of these aspects. Maintaining the SAG mill weight at the optimum value is critical for achieving maximum grind rate efficiency and mill production (Powell, M.S., van der Westhuizen, A.P., & Mainza, A.N. 2009).

SAG Balls. MILL LINER BOLT. Twist Lock Pin. Easy Out Bolt. The Molycop range of SAG grinding balls is prepared for impact. Through an innovative manufacturing process we've produced a ball with greater impact resistance and reduced spalling compared to the standard SAG ball, ready to perform in the highest impact SAG milling environments.

In broad terms, this makes SAG mills less expensive to build (in terms of unit capital cost per ton of throughput) than AG mills but more expensive to operate (as a result of increased grinding media and liner costs, and in many cases, lower power efficiency).

Gold production was 27% lower than the prior period9 mainly driven by lower mill throughput rates at Cadia, Lihir and Telfer. As foreshadowed in the June 2021 quarterly report, Cadia's mill capacity was limited by the replacement and upgrade of the SAG mill motor resulting in lower gold production during the period. Mill throughput rates were ...

Single Stage SAG Mill. Using SAG instead of AG increases the capacity as well as application range, but will also increase wear costs and still be dependent on "natural" product size being close to the desired. Common circuit in the US and Canada . Single stage SAG mill circuit [image: (135-6-25)]

Stopping mill equipment is not a desirable alternative, so the best way to resolve SAG mill challenges is to use simulation technology for equipment design alterations. Replacing the SAG's worn-out liner can occur every six to nine months and cost between $30,000 U.S. and $200,000 U.S. per hour, and each repair takes between 40 hours and 120 ...
