Table of ContentsSAG Mill ChargeSAG Mill Horsepower — Drive PowerOre Testing for AG & SAG Grinding Mill Design Mill Sizing: After laboratory and pilot plant testing confirm the feasibility of autogenous or semi-autogenous grinding, it can be used to establish the exact grinding circuit and mill size. In the pilot plant tests, the tare power of the pilot plant mills should be determined

• ### Modelling SAG milling power and specific energy

In general these equations are used to predict power consumption as a function of mill size, level and density of the internal charge and % of critical speed. Almost none of these equations (with the notable exception of the Morrell’s model) consider explicitly the effect that the feed particle size has on the mill performance, particularly on the power and on the specific energy consumption of the mill.

calculations by the user. If the mill has cone ends the model automatically calculates the volume of the cone ends as well as the volume of balls/rock in the cone ends from the cylindrical section data that the user inputs. In SAG mills the total filling relates to the combined rock and ball volume (including voids),

• ### A comparative

The power calculations do not include any additional design factors. The installed power was estimated based on the recommendation by Doll (Doll, 2012) considering the various power losses in the transmission system. The estimated SAG mill power includes a correction for the interstitial mill filling. In the case of the estimated ball

• ### A Method of C alculating Autogenous/ Semi-Autogenous

SAG mills mimic the same shortcoming. It follows that in order to obtain the speciﬁ c energy (SE) to achieve a certain transfer size, based on the 80 per cent passing value, an inefﬁ ciency factor must be applied to the SE of single stage ball mills, rod mills or AG/SAG mills when calculating power according to the Bond Third Theory method.
