Semi-autogenous Metso Outotec SAG mills, as they are often called, can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or three stages of crushing and screening. Often used in grinding at modern mineral processing plants, SAG mills reduce the material directly to the desired final size or prepare it for the following grinding stages
Apr 15, 2018 · A credible and efficient numerical approach for accurately predicting wear within SAG mills can significantly reduce design time and improve grinding efficiency. In this paper, the 3D simulations were performed using discrete element method (DEM) combined with an erosion model, which is referred to as Shear Impact Energy Model (SIEM), to predict wear within a SAG mill
Apr 30, 2018 · As the ball wears to smaller diameters, the wear rate decreases proportionally. In SAG milling, wear speeds are dependent on ball size and ball charge volume. The relative performance of high Cr balls to forged steel balls is dependent on the milling environment: a) In high wear rate applications like SAG and primary grinding, the high Cr ball has 0 – 30% lower wear
Feb 28, 2016 · Liner wear occurs during the grinding process in tumbling mill. It has a significant influence on the overall economic performance of mills. It will be worthwhile to know the effect of mill operating parameters on the liner wear intensity
Nov 12, 2016 · Grinding Media & Lining Media Liner Wear Rate Modelling & Prediction. The cost of replacement of the metal worn from the working surfaces of the balls and liners of a mill often represents a considerable fraction of the cost of operation of the plant and so is of some real economical importance. In spite of this importance, however, the amount of information in available on this subject …
Apr 02, 2020 · Mill Filling Prediction tool addresses productivity challenges & energy inefficiency. 2 Apr 2020. Associate Professor Mohsen Yahyaei & Dr Marko Hilden on a mine site during implementation of the MFP tool. Researchers from the Sustainable Minerals Institute’s Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC) are developing a soft sensor to overcome previously-accepted performance challenges facing Semi-Autogenous Grinding (SAG) mills
Apr 03, 2020 · Associate Professor, Mohsen Yahyaei, who is JKMRC’s Advanced Process Prediction and Control (APPCo) Group Leader, said the MFP tool includes mathematical models that predict the wear condition of the mill, the level of mill filling, the filling of the steel grinding media and particle trajectory
Grinding Solutions offers an extensive range of comminution services, ranging from SAG mill testing to fine and ultrafine grinding.

Rocky DEM helps predict liner wear and fine-tuning optimum conditions for SAG mill operation. Share this. No one in industry is happy with downtime losses incurred due to a machine that won’t operate. In the mining sector, these losses can be particularly large. For example, a trained professional crew requires between 40 and 120 hours to replace the worn liner of a Semi-Autogenous Grinding (SAG) mill …
Jul 29, 2020 · SAG mills are a key asset for mineral processing operations as one of the critical stages of extracting mineral out of ore, and their continued stable operation is central to productivity
Understanding the Effects of Liner Wear on Semi-autogenous Grinding Mill Performance. Abstract. The effect of liner wear on SAG mill performance has gained much attention in recent years. It is commonly observed that the three key performance criteria of SAG milling; throughput, power and product size all improve as the liner wears. The increase in throughput is generally ascribed to the increase in the grate …
TRAJECTORY ANALYSIS TO OPTIMISE GRINDING ACTION AND MINIMISE BALL/LINER IMPACTS. Optimising the charge motion to ensure grinding media is hitting the toe of the charge will result in the maximising of ore breakage rates and therefore mill throughput. Trajectory analysis also ensures grinding media is not being over thrown onto mill liners where
Besides, a wear prediction method was used to compare and validate the experimental results. The experimental results showed that the Abbott-Firestone curve can evaluate the lifter surface topography. The wear rate of the lifter specimen is increased first and then decreased with mill speed and grinding media size. Increasing ball filling will increase the wear rate, and the grinding media shape of ball has a …
Nov 26, 2019 · SAG mills grinding media includes some large and hard rocks, filled rate of 9% – 20%. SAG mill grind ores through impact, attrition, abrasion forces. In practice, for a given ore and equal processing conditions, the AG milling has a finer grind than SAG mills
The grinding media is actually alumina particles held in place by an SiO2 glass phase. Sizes from 400 microns to over 1 inch in beads, balls, satellites (ball with bands) and cylinders. Low to medium cost, small sizes are more costly. Fused Zirconium oxide Grinding Media (sp.gr. 3.8) Smooth surface leads to low mill wear and longevity. Sizes from 200 microns to 2.5mm
Feb 27, 2017 · The wear of grinding media (balls), plus the wear of grinding mill liners, accounts for a major portion of the wear in the iron ore processing plant. The dominant wear mechanisms in grinding (ball milling process) are high-stress abrasion and erosion–corrosion
Aug 01, 2007 · SAG mill liner development draws primarily on practical experience from SAG milling operations supported by computer-based modeling of charge motion in SAG mills and on established good design practice. Liner design needs to respond to the process aspects of mill liner action that are critical to good SAG mill performance, i.e., the impact of shell liners on the grinding action and of …
mportance of the SAG (Semi Autogenous Grinding) mills for the mineral complexes persuades many researchers to study the behavior of these huge equipments. Laboratory mills and the DEM (Discrete element method) software are the prevalent and reliable methods of modeling the mill behaviors. The former is very costly and the latter not only takes the much time but also needs the very advanced …
