The geometry of conventional pulp lifters is such that the slurry, once passed through the grate into pulp lifter will always be in contact with the grate until it is completely discharged, which makes the 'flow-back' process inevitable (Latchireddi, 2002).Though the impact of flow-back may be of lower magnitude in open circuit grinding, it can make a …

an 8 m diameter SAG mill with LID = 0.5 grinding a copper ore, and predicted maximum capacity and minimum kWh/ton at about 6070 ball load at 25070 total filling. Two FAG mills of LID = 2 were necessary to give the same capacity, and the simulations indicated a lower kWh/ton for these mills. For this ore, both systems were technically feasible.

The slurry transportation in AG/SAG mills is a two-stage process consisting of flow through the grate and the discharge of slurry by pulp lifters into the discharge trunnion. The grate-only discharge condition provides the ideal relation between slurry hold-up and flowrate. By attaching pulp lifters to the grate, the ideal hold-up–flowrate ...

The SAG Mill has a "small" circulation load of oversize given be the 3/8″ trommel screen and the 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ discharge grates. The load of 4″ balls in this SAG is "good" but un-measured. SAG Ball consumption is "average" at 400 g/t while Ball Mill grinding media (3″ balls) usage in 550 g/t.

Product Size: All passing 6 mesh with 80% passing 20 mesh. Net power from pilot plant: 16.5 KWH/ST. Mill, gear and pinion friction multiplier: 1.025. Mill Power required at pinionshaft = (240 x 16.5 x 1.025) ÷ 0.746 = 5440 Hp. Speed reducer efficiency: 98%. 5440 Hp ÷ 0.98 = 5550 HP (required minimum motor output power).

Three-piece "compression-type" liner bolt sealer is designed to prevent leakage of slurry. or dust from mill liner bolt holes. Used in conjunction with Grade 5 (high-strength) bolts, this assembly is generally applied to rod mills over 10.0′ in diameter and ball and. autogenous mills greater than 13.5″ in diameter.

SAG % ore content SAG grate size and end mill design including grate geometry, location, shape, pan cavity, recycle % in pan cavity, et. al. SAG lifter and end cone geometry - can change SAG mill performance more than 20%-50% depending on P80 transfer size and Axb, some of which is published and some will be published at SAG 2015.

Citic SMCC's slurry flow model for AG/SAG mills (grate discharge mills) was constructed using the approach originally adopted by Morrell and Stephenson (1996) who related the volume of slurry held-up in the mill to its rate of flow out of the grates. Morrell and Stephenson incorporated the effects of grate design, mill speed and charge volume.

A high aspect SAG mill had an ID of 6.0 m and the length measured 4.0 m along the central line. The mill was charged with ore having a S.G. of 2.65 and the load was 40% of the mill volume. The grinding media steel balls occupied 12.2 % of the mill volume. The mill was rotated at 75% of its critical speed, which was 12.9 rpm. Estimate:1.

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. ...

The mill discharge from these mills consists of slurry, which goes to the ball mills for further grinding, and coarse pebbles/rocks, which are crushed and sent back to the mill. To maximize the capacity of these circuits, the general practice is to use grates with pebble ports (reaching 100 mm) instead of normal grate openings to increase the ...

The main drawback of SAG - high power consumption. To reduce power consumption, I think: The right determine of SAG feed size. This depends on the mill diameter and the ball size. Feed size necessary to take 80% of the maximum piece of ore that will crushed by the balls. For the big SAG more than 8 meters optimal feed size will be - 50mm.

2. Mill Shell: main chamber where ore particles are broken due to tumbling action of the mill. 3. Grate: screen, which allows the ground ore particles and water to pass through in the form of slurry. 4. Pulp lifter: lifts the slurry, which passes through grate into the discharge trunnion. 5.
