Mill (grinding) - Wikipedia

A mill is a device that breaks solid materials into smaller pieces by grinding, crushing, or cutting. Such comminution is an important unit operation in many processes.There are many different types of mills and many types of materials processed in them. Historically mills were powered by hand or by animals (e.g., via a hand crank), working animal (e.g., horse mill), wind or water ().

(PDF) SINGLE STAGE SAG/AG MILLING DESIGN SINGLE STAGE SAG …

6 OPERATION OF A SINGLE STAGE MILL Control Philosophy In a single stage SAG mill, there are two regimes of breakage that must be controlled in order to maximise power efficiency and hence capacity. These are the high energy coarse rock breakage, load control and low energy breakage to control circulating load and to meet the target product size.

Grinding Circuit Overload - Grinding & Classification ...

Another common issue with SAG mills is operating at very low density (e.g. <70% solids) - if there is room to increase SAG density, this will enable the SAG to grind finer with little or no decrease in throughput. Consider reducing the feed rate when the overload starts rather than waiting until a grind-out becomes necessary.

Throughput optimisation in milling circuits

SAG Mill Discharge. Controlling the feed and discharge of a mill is mostly a stabilisation exercise – you need to be able to quickly and accurately control 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 ...
