Model Predictive Control Rockwell Automation

Model predictive control on a SAG mill and ball mills The solution for the SAG Mill is an adaptive controller which controls mill load using direct mill weight measurement or indirectly from bearing oil pressure. The solution automatically controls ore master feed rate and water addition to increase throughput, while keeping mill load within

SAG Mill Control: It Shouldn’t be that Hard E & MJ

SAG mill control fundamentally means managing the load in the mill by adjusting the feed rate of ore to the mill and/or manipulating the rotational speed of the mill. The best way to measure load is to mount the mill on load cells. The load cells are calibrated to measure the total weight of water, grinding media (balls) and ore in the mill

What's the Difference Between SAG Mill and Ball Mill

Nov 26, 2019 Both the autogenous grinding mill and the ball mill feed parts are welded with groove and embedded inner wear-resistant lining plate. As the sag mill does not contain grinding medium, the abrasion and impact on the equipment are relatively small. The feed of the ball mill

The circuit is usually closed with either a screen or, more commonly, a cyclone for product size classification. The focus of control can be divided into two parts, viz. the

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).

Control SAG Mill sound detection Grinding

Where I work now, Minera San Cristobal in Bolivia, we use sound control on both the SAG and Ball Mills. The result of this control is a 25% increase in throughput, over the plant design, with a 10% reduction in energy consumption; the mill is more efficient. The mill control manipulates the feed rate and mill speed depending on ore and liner

What is the difference between a SAG mill and ball mill?

A SAG mill is usually a primary or first stage grinder. SAG mills use a ball charge of 8 to 21%. [6] [7] The largest SAG mill is 42′ (12.8m) in diameter, powered by a 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor. [8] A SAG mill with a 44′ (13.4m) diameter and a power of 35 MW (47,000 HP) has been designed. [9]

Autogenous and Semi-Autogenous Mills

Single stage SAG Mills are very beneficial in reducing CAPEX for plants with a staged throughput approach. When future tonnage is to be increased, the SAG Mill can feed downstream ball milling to boost capacity. Fuller-Traylor SAG/AG Mills range in size from 4.3m through 12.2m in diameter with powers as high as 28,000 kW.

Electronic ear in SAG mill Automation & Control

Aug 25, 2004 We have an application in a SAG Mill where we have installed an electronic ear in order to listen the noise produced by the balls falling to the bottom of the mill. Our idea is to convert the amplitude and frequency of noise to a 4-20mA signal (or something else) in order to determine if the ball is crushing the mineral or the mill lining.
