PRESSURE TEST, SPT Conventional primary grinding technology . uses a semi- or fully autogenous mill and the accepted small scale test to determine the specific energy requirement is the SAG Power Index, SPI test. Ore samples are typically prepared for SPI testing as part of any design or forecasting study using CEET technology.
The high unit capacity SAG mill/ball mill circuit is dominant today and has contributed toward substantial savings in capital and operating costs, which has in turn made many low-grade, high-tonnage operations such as copper and gold ores feasible. Future circuits may see increasing use of high pressure grinding rolls (Rosas et al., 2012).
However the SAG route is more power-intensive and, for very hard ores, comes with some process risk in predicting performance. More recently, a hybrid solution has become available in the form of high pressure grinding rolls (HPGR’s), which can replace the third stage of crushing and also the SAG mill.

2014-8-25 · He says that Weir is seeing a rise in demand for larger cone crushers that are matched with large high pressure grinding rolls (HPGRs) for customers who want to replace SAG mills in order to increase efficiency. Utilising cone crushers and HPGRs allows ore to be processed from 250mm to 50mm in cone crushers, then down to less than 6mm from HPGRs.
2017-12-6 · A typical HPGR circuit flowsheet consists of one or more secondary crushers, high pressure grinding rolls, ball mills and ancillary equipment like vibrating screens, dust collection and conveyors.
"The High Pressure Grinding Rolls (HPGR) is a relatively new comminution technology that has been shown to be more energy efficient compared to semi-autogeneous (SAG) mills. Full and fair consideration cannot be given to HPGR-based comminution circuits in early stage projects, because presently pilot scale testing is required for assessing and
2020-4-8 · The uniform pressure profile in the milling gap results in better grinding and more even roller wear, improving the service life of the rolls by up to 30%. By reducing the so-called bathtub effect —accelerated wear in the center zone of the roll surface — the rolls
