### (PDF) Control of ball mill grinding circuit using model

Control studies have been performed by simulation for servo and regulatory problems. Limited studies for robustness of the controller have also been performed. Process descriptionThe laboratory grinding circuit consists of an overflow type ball mill (30 cm 30 cm), a sump fitted with a variable speed pump and a hydrocyclone classifier (30 mm).

proposed flowsheet consists of existing SAG mill circuit followed by a new proposed ball mill in closed circuit with the existing hydrocyclone package. In all simulations, SAGT, CYCL and MILL models were selected to simulate SAG mill, Hydrocyclone packages and ball mill units. SAGT and MILL models both are based on the population balance model

In other words, the two existing parallel ball mills would be converted to an operation in series. Simulation 6 was based on the changes included in Simulation 5. Simulation 6 results showed 1050 t/h circuit throughput, yielding 0.213 mm and 0.138 mm P 80 values respectively at first and second ball milling stage discharges.

The grinding operation in a ball mill is widely used in comminution. This process is extremely capital and energy intensive process and at the same time it is notoriously inefficient. Therefore, simulation can be used as a convenient tool in studying the behaviour and performance of grinding circuits by facilitating the evaluation of various scenarios and identification of optimum operating

The experiment process is that the operators control the value of three grinding variables to achieve a target grinding particle size (GPS) on the ball mill grinding circuit simulator (see Figure

The results showed that the HPGR-ball mill circuit achieved a 21% reduction in energy consumption over the existing SAG-ball mill circuit at the same P80 grind size of 160 mircons (μm). At a grind of 80% passing 75 μm, the HPGR-stirred mill circuit showed a 34%

Dec 02, 2016 circuit is shown in Figure1. It is commonly referred to as a SABC circuit, for Semi-Autogenous Ball mill Crusher (SABC). This circuit shows a semi-autogenous grinding (SAG)/ball mill circuit where both grinding mills are in closed circuit, with the SAG mill closed with a crusher to control the amount of ‘critical size’ material in the circuit.
