Jul 01, 2019· The model is optimized considering a yearly cost function, with hourly resolution for the solar irradiance and hardness models. The results show that integrating solar power into the operation of a SAG mill has potential to reduce the total energy cost by 27%. Robustness against climate change can be achievedwith an increase in total cost of 1%.

• Efficient operation even at higher mill speeds • Operator-friendly smooth mill operation • Significantly improve wear life • Can be precisely designed to handle the given capacity • Can be easily retro-fitted to existing mills. The optimal performance of AG/SAG mills is the key to successful plant operation.

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).

A control strategy recently implemented on a large variable-speed SAG mill at MMG's Century Zinc operation in Australia is shown in the chart (found on pg. 32). In this case, mill speed is the primary manipulated variable used to control mill load. While there is no generic control strategy for SAG milling there is a considerable amount of ...

A gold and copper mine in South East Asia was experiencing a range of challenges with its SAG mill that were hitting productivity. Facing a significant increase in ore hardness that would have exacerbated the problems, the mine turned to us to provide a solution for a safer and more productive grinding operation.

MCKEN - SGS KEYWORDS Comminution, grindability, grinding, SAG mill, AG mill, milling, HPGR, work index, pilot plant INTRODUCTION The resistance of ore samples to breakage (or hardness) is measured

I've got to explain this a little bit. This flowsheet is typical of lines 1 and 3. The SAG mill has a trommel on the discharge end of it. Oversize is returned to the mill by a bucket wheel and water jet. Trommel undersize was pumped to a vibrating screen where the screen oversize was sent back to the mill and the undersize was pumped to the ...
