Overload Detection in Semi-Autogenous Grinding: A

Detecting the onset of overloading in a semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill is a challenging task for operators to perform due to the complex and nonlinear nature of an overload.

Grinding Circuit Overload Grinding & Classification

Consider reducing the feed rate when the overload starts rather than waiting until a grind-out becomes necessary. If you are discharging your primary mill to a trommel or vibrating screen, try reducing the aperture size by about 20%. (Caveat if you do not have a pebble crusher in you SAG circuit, this will impact throughput).

Evolution of SAG Mill Process Control at the Xstrata

DEVELOPMENT OF A SAG MILL CONTROLLER Owing to the highly variable feed conditions, the mill required the constant attention of plant operators in order to prevent overloading or losing the SAG charge resulting in consequent damage to liners. Focus was therefore placed specifically on improving SAG

SAG Mill Control at Northparkes Final

The consequences of either overloading or underloading a SAG mill are very significant. An overloaded mill will often require reducing or stopping the feed, while underloading can increase liner wear and damage. In more extreme cases both conditions can result in tripping or stopping the SAG mill

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). However, SAG mill weight is difficult to control as the dynamic response changes as the mill approaches maximum capacity.

In the case of,as the mill is groundFigure 4-out, the bearing pressure drops significantly, however the power draw increases (this is a typical response for a SAG mill coming out of a classical overload). These examples highlight a fundamental difference between ball mill and SAG mill control.

On-line Vibration Monitoring System Improves Fault

On this site, the most critical was the semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill, which runs 24/7 with a full load. At the moment, because the life of the mine is limited, they are running at full production, occasionally overloading the mill. When the mill stops, the production cannot be recovered, and it is the only mill on the site.
