discharge pump (grate and pulp lifters) is operating. Similar to the impeller design affecting the pump capacity, the pulp lifter design affects the discharge capacity (or mill throughput) of the SAG/AG grinding mills. The general arrangement of AG/SAG mills discharge system is shown in Figure 1. BREAKAGE DISCHARGE

and slurry from the discharge grate out of the mill. Hence, the design optimisation of pulp lifters affects not only the energy efficiency and throughput of autogenous grinding/semi-autogenous (AG/SAG) grinding mills, but also contributes other process benefits such as improved wear life and operator-friendly steady and smooth mill operation.

The charge motion and breakage of particles inside the mill depends on the shell lifters design, while the discharge of ground particles is controlled by the grate and pulp lifters. The limitations imposed by poor grate and pulp lifter design become increasingly apparent with increasing size of ag/sag mills and their operation in closed circuit.

Converting a mill from an overflow to a grate discharge arrangement leads to an increased power draw. This happens because the installation of the grate discharge arrangement enables the mill to run with a lower level of slurry due to it being no longer necessary for the slurry to build up inside the mill until it overflows from the mill discharge.

However, grate discharge mills have a more complex mechanism. The different components of a mill relevant to material transport in a trunnion supported grate discharge mill are described below and schematically shown in Fig. 1. 1. Feed trunnion: assembly through which solids and water enters into the mill. 2.

Summary and conclusions. The slurry transportation in AG/SAG mills is a two-stage process consisting of flow through the grate and the discharge of slurry by pulp lifters into the discharge trunnion. The grate-only discharge condition provides the ideal relation between slurry hold-up and flowrate.

Abstract. Pulp lifters, also known, as pan lifters are an integral part of the majority of autogenous (AG), semi-autogenous (SAG) and grate discharge ball mills. The performance of the pulp lifters in conjunction with grate design determines the ultimate flow capacity of these mills. Although the function of the pulp lifters is simply to ...
