  • Optimizing your SAG mill operation International Mining

    Mar 21, 2007· Generally, the discharge from AG/SAG mills consists of one or both of the following components: slurry (water and finer particles) and pebbles (20-100 mm). Single stage AG/SAG mills have to handle large amounts of slurry as they are generally in closed circuit with classifiers whose circulating loads reach as high as 400-500%.

  • SAG MILL DISCHARGE SCREENS-TROMMEL vs. VIBRATING

    The SAG mill has a trommel on the discharge end of it. Oversize is returned to the mill by a bucket wheel and water jet. Trommel undersize was pumped to a vibrating screen where the screen oversize was sent back to the mill and the undersize was pumped to the cyclone circuit. Figure 2 shows the flowsheet for line 2 with only the trommel,

    SAG mill discharge control is quite involved due to few interactive variables, such as mill discharge sump level, classification hydro-cyclone variables (feed density, flow and pressure) and water feed rate to the sump. Model predictive control (MPC), which is a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) controller, is very suitable for this purpose.
