Ball Mills - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

A feature of ball mills is their high specific energy consumption; a mill filled with balls, working idle, consumes approximately as much energy as at full-scale capacity, i.e. during grinding of material. Therefore, it is most disadvantageous to use a ball mill at less than full capacity. Ball mills have the following advantages: • universality and high capacity • permanence of a ...

Optimizing your SAG mill operation - International Mining

21/03/2007  In the past, when primary, secondary and tertiary crushers fed material directly to large ball mills, the energy efficiency of the concentrator was determined for the most part by the ball mill operation, whereas now the energy efficiency of a plant often rests largely on the SAG mill operation. As a result, mines have shifted their emphasis in optimization from ball mills to SAG mills. The ...

SPECIFIC COMMINUTION ENERGY - SMC Testing

Semi-autogenous (SAG), rod and ball mills. As well as the total specific energy it will also predict the specific energy of the crushing section, the HPGR section and the tumbling mill section separately. Hence, for example, in the case of an SABC circuit the total specific energy of the entire comminution circuit will be predicted plus the individual specific energies of the primary crusher ...

Energy and Cost Comparisons of HPGR-based Circuits

The results showed that the HPGR-ball mill circuit achieved a 21% reduction in energy consumption over the existing SAG-ball mill circuit at the same P80 grind size of 160 mircons (μm). At a grind of 80% passing 75 μm, the HPGR-stirred mill circuit showed a 34% reduction in energy compared to the base case. The energy

Modelling SAG milling power and specific energy ...

tools to optimise power consumption and/or specific energy in operating SAG mills (it is not intended for design, but could help with it). Even if the mill total load is a key variable and can be indi- rectly measured with bearing pressure measurements, it was decided to discard it as an input variable. The main reason is that this kind of model must be useful to relate independent input vari ...

That is, the SAG mill produces about 10.76% more than the ball mill in the final product. The average consumed energy at SAG and ball mills to produce one ton of final product was 23.16 kWh/t and 36.05 kWh/t respectively. Thus, the ball mill consumes 12.89 kWh/t, more energy than the SAG mill in producing the final product. The average cyclones ...

What is the difference between a SAG mill and ball mill?

SAG mills use a ball charge of 8 to 21%. [6] [7] The largest SAG mill is 42′ (12.8m) in diameter, powered by a 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor. [8] A SAG mill with a 44′ (13.4m) diameter and a power of 35 MW (47,000 HP) has been designed. [9] Attrition between grinding balls and ore particles causes grinding of finer particles. SAG mills are characterized by their large diameter and short length ...

Difference Between Sag Mill vs Ball Mill - mech4study

12/10/2017  SAG mill make use of steel balls included with some large and hard rocks for grinding. These mills utilize the balls in making the large fragments of materials broken into pieces. The ball charge of a SAG mill is about 9% to 20%.This process takes place inside the large rotating drum of SAG mill which is filled with balls partially. Interior of the drum uses the lifting plates. These plates ...
