Autogenous Grinding & Semi Autogenous

2017-7-20  Autogenous grinding is favored when the ore is quite competent and a fine grind is required. Semi-autogenous grinding is applied when fine crushing could cause severe problems or when ore is variable in hardness or competency. Figure 2 shows a typical conventional crushing-grinding circuit

Power-based modelling of single-stage AG and SAG mill

The single-stage autogenous grinding (AG) or semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill is a low-cost option for milling relatively low tonnages. Such circuits consist of an AG or SAG mill that is fed directly from a primary crusher, and the mill product is then classified through a hydrocyclone (or

Dynamic Modeling and Simulation of SAG Mill Circuits

AG/SAG mill is inefficient in grinding particles of a certain size, typically in the range of 25-55 mm, i.e., pebbles. Therefore, cone crushers are often used as pebble crushers and integrated into AG/SAG mill circuits to break the critical size particles that accumulate in the mill and to increase the performance of the primary grinding circuits.
