    The results in SAG-Mill line 2 are even more dramatic. Because of segregation on the coarse feed stockpile SAG-mill 2 receives a higher percentage of coarse material. The KnowledgeScape strategy s ability to maintain smooth and stable operation of the mill was more apparent when contrasted to the DCS control on the "difficult" line.

  • Electronic ear in SAG mill Automation Control

    Aug 25 2004 · We have an application in a SAG Mill where we have installed an electronic ear in order to listen the noise produced by the balls falling to the bottom of the mill. Our idea is to convert the amplitude and frequency of noise to a 4-20mA signal (or something else) in order to determine if the ball is crushing the mineral or the mill lining.
