Applying grindcurves to mill operation and optimisation

low aspect SAG mill operated with a very high ball load in closed circuit, the power response is generic. Fig. 3 illustrates the expected throughput response of a generic SAG mill based on simulations conducted by Morrell (Powell et al., 2001) for a range of ore hardness, AG/SAG operation, open circuit (oc) and closed circuit (cc) operation.

SAG Mill Process Control Grinding & Classifiion

Underground mines are an example: the hoisting capacity of the mine shaft is the ratelimiting step in the process, and the SAG mill must adapt to what the shaft can supply. So yes, there are situations where constant tonnage is appropriate but most SAG mill operators should target constant power draw.
