  • SAG Mill Optimization using Model Predictive Control

    Control of -SemiAutogenous Grinding(SAG) mill weight is an example of an important process that exhibits many of these aspects. Maintaining the SAG mill weight at the optimum value is critical for achieving maximum grind rate efficiency and mill production (Powell M.S. van der Westhuizen A.P. Mainza A.N. 2009).

  • Mill (grinding)Wikipedia

    SAG is an acronym for semi-autogenous grinding. SAG mills are autogenous mills that also use grinding balls like a ball mill. A SAG mill is usually a primary or first stage grinder. SAG mills use a ball charge of 8 to 21 . The largest SAG mill is 42 (12.8m) in diameter powered by a 28 MW (38 000 HP) motor.

  • Throughput optimisation in milling circuits

    For example you need a good fast responding control of the mill feed rate. If the mill feed setpoint is changed then the actual feed rate needs to stabilise at the new target in a short period of time. The feed rate setpoint can then be tied into a SAG mill power optimisation strategy. SAG Mill
