sag mill power consumption

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

energy consumption is defined as the motor power consumed relative to the shell of the mill (a.k.a. power at the pinion output) divided by the fresh feed rate in dry tonnes per hour. The simplest models use a single grindability measurement to estimate the specific energy consumption across the whole size range observed in the industrial ...

TECHNICAL NOTES 8 GRINDING R. P. King

2009-7-30  Mills usually operate in the range 65 - 82% of critical but values as high as 90% are sometimes used. A crucial parameter that defines the performance of a mill is the energy consumption. The power supplied to the mill is used primarily to lift the load (medium and charge). Additional power is required to keep the mill rotating. 8.1.3 Power ...
