The Copper Mountain SAG mill is 10363 mm [34 feet] in diameter and 6096 mm [20 feet] long. It is a grate discharge mill with an inside diameter of 10363 mm [34 feet] and a grinding length of 5334 mm [17.5 feet]. The mill is driven by two 8,500 horsepower ABB motors.

These tests were done with a ∅0.82 x 1 m grate discharge mill with a 30 mm graded ball charge and a 30% filling degree. The mill discharge pulp density was increased from 68.8% to 75.9% solids. The data is summarized in Table III. The example in Table III illustrates that the density has a large influence on the grinding efficiency. In this ...

Converting a mill from an overflow to a grate discharge arrangement leads to an increased power draw. This happens because the installation of the grate discharge arrangement enables the mill to run with a lower level of slurry due to it being no longer necessary for the slurry to build up inside the mill until it overflows from the mill discharge.

Ball Mill Power - Conversion of the ball mill to a grate discharge unit should allow full motor power (4.1 MW) to be utilised. Further, a coarser product is obtained from a grate discharge mill as a consequence of the lower slurry level present in the mill.

Summary and conclusions. The slurry transportation in AG/SAG mills is a two-stage process consisting of flow through the grate and the discharge of slurry by pulp lifters into the discharge trunnion. The grate-only discharge condition provides the ideal relation between slurry hold-up and flowrate.

Hence, the design optimisation of pulp lifters affects not only the energy efficiency and throughput of autogenous grinding/semi-autogenous (AG/SAG) grinding mills, but also contributes other process benefits such as improved wear life and operator-friendly steady and smooth mill operation.

The design of mill liners and SAG mill discharge grates will have a large effect on how efficiently the mill operates and the circuit throughput. All models generally assume that a mill is fitted with "efficient" liners and that the grate design neither limits passage of pebbles (and pulp) nor permits re-circulation of pulp back into the mill.

The charge motion and breakage of particles inside the mill depends on the shell lifters design, while the discharge of ground particles is controlled by the grate and pulp lifters. The limitations imposed by poor grate and pulp lifter design become increasingly apparent with increasing size of ag/sag mills and their operation in closed circuit.
