discharging from the autogenous mills, without risk of crusher damage through miss-directed grinding media. This way, it was believed that the primary mill throughput could be increased by about 40%, from 350kt/m to 490kt/m. This, therefore, represented a rare case when conversion of primary mills from semi-autogenous to fully-autogenous

Siemens modernizes drive system for ore mills in Chile

The new drive systems will give a huge boost to the reliability and consequently also the throughput of the mills. The contract is valued in the double-digit million range. The modernization project includes two 8 MW SAG (semi-autogenous) mills and two 9.7 MW ball mills with dual pinion drives.

Comminution Testing Equipment in Mineral Processing

To select primary autogenous or semi-autogenous mills, pilot plant testing is required. This requires obtaining bulk samples and an extended time period for test. Rod mill and ball mills can be selected using work indices from Bond grindability tests, which can

Consequently, non-contact acoustic determinations of in-mill behaviour can provide powerful insights into the operation of the primary comminution tumbling mills. By measuring key microphone signal attributes at different positions around a mill, a holistic picture of mill internal operation can be developed.
