load cell must be measured and adjusted to be within a tight tolerance for each unit produced. This is often referred to as "matching the mV/V output" of the load cell to others of the same model produced. The process of matching load cell outputs involves measuring the output and applying correction resistors. The objective is to have the

There are few methods of semi-autogenous (SAG) mill power prediction in the full-scale without using long experiments. In this work, the effects of different operating parameters such as feed moisture, mass flowrate, mill load cell mass, SAG mill solid percentage, inlet and outlet water to the SAG mill and work index are studied. A total number …

The two main variables for controlling the SAG mills are feed and speed. Feed is presently controlled automatically via an expert system that adjusts the amount according to readings taken off of multiple bearing pressure load cells on each mill. Speed control was initially desired to be

Mill operating conditions including mill speed (for circuits with variable-speed drives), density, and total mill load; The effect of feed hardness is the most significant driver for AG/SAG performance: with variations in ore hardness come variations in circuit throughput.

"The ball mill is 3.20 m diameter and 4.88 m long," the study said. The discharge typically contains "negligible +12.7-mm material." At the time, "tonnage was 45 metric tons per hour (mt/h), and mill power draw was 709 kW," the study said. "Approximate circulating load was 550%."

high deflection, it can sag and throw the load onto the two adjoining cells, possibly overloading them. It is a simple but critical process to shim the load cells or, if equipped, fine-tune the adjusting bolts on the cell mounting hardware during installation to balance the four legs.

If you have a good quality load cell installed on your mill and it is well calibrated then you have a good idea of what the total charge is. This is the parameter that changes constantly during operation of the mill. And it is mainly due to the change in ore charge. In the short term (day or two) ball charge should not change too much.

Los Pelambres, as at many mines, SAG mill throughput was limiting overall production. CONTROL OBJECTIVES • Maintain the desired mill load, ensuring optimal mill operation • Automatically account for changes in ore hardness • Provide optimal compensation for pebble mill distur-bances to minimize production disturbances

An instrumented load cell package that can measure the force of impacts inside the grinding chamber of a mill is developed here. The signal from the instrumented load cell package is interpreted in terms of a histogram termed as an impact spectrum which is a plot of the number of impacts at a specific energy level against the energy.

Traditional load cells are built using strain gauges, which are delicate metal pieces. Dramatic temperature changes will affect the function of the strain gauge, and therefore the load cell. If the load cell is exposed to cold nights and then hot, direct sunlight, or surrounding equipment heats up the area, this can cause inaccuracy.

SAG mill control fundamentally means managing the load in the mill by adjusting the feed rate of ore to the mill and/or manipulating the rotational speed of the mill. The best way to measure load is to mount the mill on load cells.

The load cell package was successfully used to produce impact spectra in an 8.5 inch lab scale mill. The mill speed and the ball size were varied to study their effect on the impact spectra. A good correlation was found between the process variables and the impact spectra. The load cell package was then used in a 16 inch pilot scale mill.

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 ...

Dry crushed ore at P80 90 mm is fed to the SAG mill (5.5 m internal diameter by 2.7 m effective grinding length) by means of a conveyor belt equipped with a load cell type belt weightometer. The load signal controls the feed rate from the mill feed bin discharge conveyor onto the conveyor belt feeding the SAG mill.
