What's the Difference Between SAG Mill and Ball Mill ...

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 ...

SAG Mill Control: It Shouldn't be that Hard | E & MJ

SAG mill control fundamentally means managing the load in the mill by adjusting the feed rate of ore to the mill and/or manipulating the rotational speed of the mill. The best way to measure load is to mount the mill on load cells. The load cells are calibrated to measure the total weight of water, grinding media (balls) and ore in the mill ...

Throughput optimisation in milling circuits

SAG mill discharge control is quite involved due to few interactive variables, such as mill discharge sump level, classification hydro-cyclone variables (feed density, flow and pressure) and water feed rate to the sump. Model predictive control (MPC), which is a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) controller, is very suitable for this purpose. ...

SAG Mill Optimization using Model Predictive Control

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).
