† The appendix of the paper lists the mill speed as 12.5 RPM. The mill is fixed speed, so the %critical speed is only a function of mill effective diameter (as liners wear). Doing the math (neglecting the balls) gives a 68.4% critical speed. The ball mill belly length can be achieved with a 18 degree head angle and 1.9 m trunnion diameter.

In the simulation, to study the effect of mill speed ratio and mill fill level ratio on the fracture effect of the SAG mill, as shown in Figure 6a,b, when the mill speed ratio is between 65% and 90% of the critical speed, the total mass curve of the rock below 25 mm in the mill presents normal distribution. When the speed is 80% of the critical speed, the fracture effect is the best. The total ...

Performance enhancement tools for grinding mills

In recognition of ore variability, many current SAG mills are installed with variable speed drives, capable of operating the mill through a wide and continuous range of speed values. Mill speed and liner profile determine grinding media trajectories, as shown in Figure 1. By increasing mill speed or the steepness of liner attack angle,

STEPPING FORWARD: USING VARIABLE SPEED DRIVES FOR ...

The breakage rate function shape of the SAG mill is largely governed by the mill load particle size distribution and mill speed. The feed in the mill contains fractions of ore that serves as the grinding media. Larger ore fractions break the smaller particles but also breakdown themselves and exit the mill as a product. In due course, the ore competency can change as fresher, harder ore is ...

Optimal Speed Control for a Semi-Autogenous Mill Based

Speed rate refers to the ratio of the speed of the mill to the critical speed, where the critical speed is n c = 30 / R. In practice, the speed rate of the SAG mill is generally 65% to 80%. Therefore, in the experiment, the speed was set to vary in 50% and 90% of the critical speed (1.28–1.64 rad/s) for the cross-over test as shown in

The SAG mill was originally equipped with radial pulp lifters. The mill runs at fixed speed of 10.9 rev/min, which is approximately 80 per cent of critical speed (per cent CS). Due to the high speed of the mill the original radial design pulp lifters presented a high volume of recirculating load inside the chamber and consequently heavy wear on the outer circle (bottom pan).
