STARTLING EFFECT OF BALL SCATS REMOVAL ON SAG …

The Std. JK size distribution is that taken from ball size distributions measured from dumping and sizing the whole charge of production SAG mills, Morrell (1993). The mill with scats had a considerably finer size distribution, and notably lacks ball in the 40mm to 60mm size range. This is the size at which the porosity is exposed, and they

where d b.max is the maximum size of feed (mm); σ is compression strength (MPa); E is modulus of elasticity (MPa); ρb is density of material of balls (kg/m 3); D is inner diameter of the mill body (m).. Generally, a maximum allowed ball size is situated in the range from D /18 to D/24.. The degree of filling the mill with balls also influences productivity of the mill and milling efficiency.
