Autogenous and Semi-Autogenous Mills FL

SAG and AG Mills operate by lifting ore/grinding media and dropping it on the operating bed of the mill charge. High impacts from lifting ore and media promote impact breakage which is the primary mechanism for size reduction in the mill. Via the use of sophisticated instruments and software, we closely monitor the mill impact location to boost the grinding efficiency of your operation.

Quantifying and improving the power efficiency of SAG

So- called critical sized particles can build up in the SAG mill charge, limiting mill throughput, and increasing unit power consumption. Removing the critical size particles from the mill, crushing them, and returning them to the circuit, can significantly improve the power efficiency of the circuit, and result in substantial increases in circuit throughput.
