process control in ball mill grinding circuits

  • Dynamic Modeling and Simulation of SAG Mill Circuits

    SAG mills are often used for primary grinding However the breakage mechanism of an 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
