Similar to the impeller design affecting pump capacity, the pulp lifter design affects the discharge capacity (or mill throughput) of AG and SAG grinding mills. Generally, the discharge from AG/SAG mills consists of one or both of the following components: slurry (water and ONLINE SAG MILL PULSE MEASUREMENT AND OPTIMIZATION,Depending on the mill size the SAG mills draws between 2 MW and 17 MW. The product from the SAG mill is further reduced in size using pebble crushers and ball mills. Hence, typical gold or copper ore requires between 2.0 and 7.5 kWh per ton of energy to reduce the particle size.Fruitful highlights potential throughput increase in SAG,“Many SAG mill liner designs perform very well in their objective to achieve the desired particle size and protect the mill structure. However, no matter how well a mill is operated, and no matter how well a liner design performs, a mill is only as good as its ability to discharge the slurry out of the mill.
