Read MoreF80 is the milling circuit feed 80% passing size, µm, fSAG is a calibration parameter for pebble crushing and/or fine feed (typically 1.0 for 80% passing six inch mill feed and when no pebble crusher is present). WiBM is the Bond ball mill work index, unitless CFnet is an empirical adjustment to a ball mill circuit [CFnet = 2.35 - 0.29 × ln(P80)]
Read MoreAG/SAG mills can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or three stages of crushing and screening, a rod mill, and some or all of the work of a ball mill. Because of the range of mill sizes available, AG/SAG milling can often be accomplished with fewer lines than in a conventional rod mill/ball mill circuit. A diagram of types of AG/SAG ...
Read MoreThe SAG mill trommel undersize is combined with the ball mills’ discharge and pumped to two parallel packs (clusters) of twelve 660 mm diameter cyclones. The cyclone underflow from each line reports to a ball mill, while the cyclone overflow is directed to the flotation circuit. The designed ball milling circuit product is 80% passing 150 µm.

Read MoreMill Type Overview. Three types of mill design are common. The Overflow Discharge mill is best suited for fine grinding to 75 – 106 microns.; The Diaphram or Grate Discharge mill keeps coarse particles within the mill for additional grinding and typically used for grinds to 150 – 250 microns.; The Center-Periphery Discharge mill has feed reporting from both ends and the product

The total solids mass flow of the mill discharge is: (2) Q + CQ = Q ( 1 + C) The final product mass flow in the mill discharge is Q / E and the amount of final product in the circulating load is: (3) Q E - Q = Q 1 E - 1. The mass flow of the coarse material in the mill discharge is the difference between the ...
Read More2014-1-1 Most milling circuits can be well approximated using linear process models, but the mill itself tends to exhibit strong non-linear behavior. To overcome this, each section of the milling circuit is typically controlled using a linear controller and the non-linearities are handled by non-linear capable supervisory layer, such as fuzzy logic or expert rules.
