feed size for sag mill

  • Modelling SAG milling power and specific energy consumption

    However, none of these models considers the feed size distribution as a design variable. In many mine to mill type studies (Simkus and Dance, 1998 Kojovic, 2005 Michaux and Djordjevic, 2005 Morrell and Valery, 2001 and many others) has been demonstrated the influence of the feed size distribution in the SAG mills

    Nov 11, 2015 Most large tonnage mineral processing facilities consist of a primary SAG milling and secondary ball milling mills. What Bond developed was a simple formula that expressed specific energy consumption with three parameters: the feed size, product size, and a grindability measurement of the ore.

  • Development of an AG/SAG mill batch test methodology UQ eSpace

    Work at Leinster Nickel operations explored the effect of feed size on mill performance (Morrell et al., 1996). As this was an AG mill, it was expected that any change in feed size distribution would have an effect on breakage rates in the mill. It was observed in Leinster that when the feed was coarser, the breakage rates.
