Manual design of SAG/ball/rod mill foundations Mar 14, 2007· I know of one foundation that was built and then beefed up three times. The final product just became a massive block of concrete. We took one look at the foundation and permitted a …

some of the key design criteria for making your own ball mill. This is a good starting point for anyone interested in making their own black powder, which is the foundation upon which all other pyrotechnics have been built. Grinding Theory: There are a lot of misconceptions about what goes on in a ball mill.

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).

A practical case of ball mill foundation is examined herein. The diameter of mill is 8.0 m with length of 13.1 m, operating at 12 rpm. The height of mill shaft is 18.1 m above ground.

of large AG/SAG mills and large ball mills. However, it is necessary to discuss their operation because a Rod mill product has a similar slope to AG/SAG mills. This product slope averages less than 0.5 when plotted on log/log paper and therefore contains an extra amount of ne material fi compared to a PSD, having a 0.5 slope. This fi ne material,

The biggest characteristic of the sag mill is that the crushing ratio is large. The particle size of the materials to be ground is 300 ~ 400mm, sometimes even larger, and the minimum particle size of the materials to be discharged can reach 0.1 mm. The calculation shows that the crushing ratio can reach 3000 ~ 4000, while the ball mill's ...

Ring Motors vary the speed of the mill by changing the sta-tor frequency. A cycloconverter provides variable frequency for start, stop and speed variation during operation. Figure 1: Ring Motor of the 38' SAG-Mill of Rio Paracatú Mineraçao; Brazil 3 Design Verification To assure reliability of operation the mechanical design must be verified.

raised and positioned. This allows any unevenness in the foundation to be compensated for and makes it possible to replace individual sliding shoes. Shell-supported ball mills are becoming the mills of choice over those with trunnion bearings. Depending on the size of the mill, there are two, four or six sliding shoes per bearing assembly.

With more than 100 years of experience in ball mill technology, Metso Outotec ball mills are designed for long life and minimum maintenance. They grind ores and other materials typically to 35 mesh or finer in a variety of applications, both in open or closed circuits.

Mill Foundation comprises of i) Base Block & ii) Pedestals for Mill, Pinion, Motor, Gear Box and Inching Motor. Bottom of the Base Block is supported on the soil @ – 3.8 m level below FGL whereas its top is at + 0.2 m level. Foundation spans about 24 m x 7 m in plan. It is supported directly on soil with quite high Cu value.

(4% ball charge, 90% Nc) A cross between AG and SAG for competent, abrasive ores. As typically operated in RSA. 6 SAG mill (configurations 3, and 5 ) with recycle crusher

Figure 5. High–low wave ball mill liner Materials The selection of the material of construction is a function of the application, abrasivity of ore, size of mill, corrosion environment, size of balls, mill speed, etc. liner design and material of construction are integral and cannot be …

This is done by using a higher shim at the center than at the ends and tightening the foundation bolts of both ends. Ball Mill Sole Plate. This crown …

• 22 MW GMD for 28' ball mill • 28 MW GMD for a 40' SAG mill • 28 MW GMD for 42' SAG mill Whether it is size or an installation at the highest altitude (4600 m.a.s.l.), ABB's GMDs are well positioned to contribute to the building of larger and ever more powerful mills. — Leading the gearless mill drive evolution

The design of such grinding mills is extremely critical, requiring sophisticated software tools, proprietary calculation worksheets, and experienced technical engineers and drafters. This blog will review how the mill design process has changed over the last 30 years. While most of the changes have been positive, new issues and problems have risen in the process.

LG A mill power equation for SAG mills. Minerals and Metallurgical Processing. Feb 1990 pp57-62. Gross power No load power Net power drawn by the charge (8.13) The net power is calculated from Net power KD2.5L e! c./ Watts (8.14) In equation 8.14, D is the diameter inside the mill liners and Le is the effective length of the mill including the ...

The design of a ball mill can vary significantly depending on the size, the equipment used to load the starting ma terial (feeders), and the system for discharging the output product.

behavior. Generally the foundation design requires more effort than the seismic design of the GMD, simply due to the fact that the motor structure is made of steel. It is known from site experience that foundations get damaged before the GMD and mill structures. Design and construction of GMDs approach to withstand harmful effects

autogenous (SAG) Mill via an utilized method. Miduk copper concentrator is located in Kerman Province, Iran, and its size reduction stage includes one gyratory crusher which feeds one SAG mill (9.75 dia.(m)*3.88 length(m)) following two parallel ball mills (5dia.(m)*7lenght(m)). After SAG mill, a

supported grinding mills up to the largest sizes. SAG/ball mill circuit incorporating pebble crushers and a POLYCOM® high-pressure grinding roll. SAG and ball mill for gold ore grinding. One of three SAG mills with 9.75 m diameter and 2 x 4000 kW drive power. These mills operate in conjunction with ball mills for iron ore grinding in Iran.

Optimization of mill performance by using online ball and pulp measurements by B. Clermont* and B. de Haas* Synopsis Ball mills are usually the largest consumers of energy within a mineral concentrator. Comminution is responsible for 50% of the total mineral processing cost. In today's global markets, expanding mining groups are trying

The ball charge is a function of the bulk fraction of the SAG mill volume (Jb) occupied by balls; the ore retained in the mill is the result of the volumetric filling which depends on the ore size distribution (specially the % +6″ and the % −6″ +1″), on the rotational speed (N/Nc) and on the solid concentration by weight fraction inside ...
