If you have done proper test work and assumed your Work index is as you provided above quickly I can estimate that your SAG throughput is around 517 t/h and if the total % of mill charge is 25 % of the total mill volume, then you can assume the following assumption .i.e. mass proportion of grinding body to ore be 15% steel balls and 10 % ore (1.5:1) this means 1ton/h of ore requires
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)
The SAG mill pinion energy is determined from the SAGDesign™ testwork results as follows : W SDT = revs (16,000 + m s)) / (447.3 m s) where : W SDT = AG/SAG Specific Pinion Energy from a F 80 of 152.4 mm to a T 80 of 1.7 mm, kWh/ton ground revs = Cumulative number of SAG test mill revolutions to 80% passing 1.7mm m s = SAG mill feed sample mass, grams

The ﬁ nal DB Consulting (DBC) AG/SAG SE calculation is based on an AG/SAG circuit without a pebble crusher. Comparisons are made between the SMC and the author’s method of AG/SAG SE evaluations using examples. Two published graphs, relating to Ab and DWi values, are discussed highlighting the nature of their contents. ROD MILLS
W Total = WSAG + W Ball Mill (2) Where W is the grinding mill work input in kWh/t. For the above reason, the Starkey SAG mill was built in 1991 to measure the energy required to grind ore to a size of 80% passing 10-mesh or 0.17 mm (T80) by grinding small drill

Mar 13, 2018 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
May 02, 2020 Ausgrind program improvements include: Mill liner wear and life prediction for any liner/lifter design. SAG mill slurry pooling model to predict the onset and effect of slurry pooling for varying operating conditions. Grinding mill trajectory model to determine safe operating speed ranges based on liner/lifter design

Jan 13, 2018 This is an example calculation for sag and tension in the transmission line. You may opt to review first the fundamental principles and formulas from this post.. The foregoing calculation is based on the linear cable model on which plastic elongations are ignored. Also, the loading of the conductors is based on the National Electrical Safety Code 2017
Jan 01, 2015 Two new SAG milling models are developed in this work, able to predict power or specific energy consumption, including the usual design variables such as mill size; balls charge level, solids concentration in the SAG mill feed and % of critical speed, but adding a variable that represents the feed size distribution

Nov 26, 2019 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 Circuit Example — Gold Processing SAG mill circuit example for gold processing [image: (135-6-3)] AG/SAG Mill. AG/SAG mills are normally used to grind run-off-mine ore or primary crusher product. Wet grinding in an AG/SAG mill is accomplished in a slurry of 50 to 80 percent solids. 2D and 3D simulations of particles in a SAG Mill
Feb 16, 2018 In the previous post, we calculated the sag and tension of a transmission line given that the conductors supports are at the same elevation.In this example we will calculate the sag and tension if the conductor supports are at different elevation. Creep is not considered as a factor in final sag in this calculation. Also, loading of the conductors are based on 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. This paper looks at recognising problems in liner design and selection in existing operations, and then
