### AMIT 135: Lesson 6 Grinding Circuit Mining Mill Operator

The mill product can either be finished size ready for processing, or an intermediate size ready for final grinding in a rod mill, ball mill or pebble mill. AG/SAG mills can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or three stages of crushing and screening, a rod mill, and some or all of the work of a ball mill.

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.

In a ball mill circuit, the "output" can be defined as the production rate of fines of the circuit. As for any output, ball mill circuit output is a function of both its inputs and efficiencies. There are two "inputs" to a ball mill circuit: the ore fed to the circuit and the power delivered by the grinding mill.

Ball Mill Grinding Circuit The ball mill is in closed circuit with a sump and three cyclone classifiers. The ore and trim water are added to the ball mill and the outflow from the ball mill goes to a sump where additional water is added. The slurry from the ball mill is pumped out of a sump into two cyclone separators. The underflow from the

of autogenous, semi-autogenous and ball mill grinding circuits[6]. Schnatz carried out a huge test program on a semi-industrial ball mill which operates in a closed circuit. He evaluated performance of a ball mill circuit by varying the L/D ratio, ball charge filling ratio, ball size and residence time and determined their optimum value[7].

Ball mills are the most common grinding machine employed in the mining industry. Grinding occurs in a single stage, or multiple stages. Multiple stages may include a rod mill followed by a ball mill (two stage circuit), or a semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill followed by a ball mill (two stage circuit).
