- NCP utilize modified Bond Theory incl proven Service factors established from our extensive experience for Ball Mill Sizing.
- SAG/AG mills are sized using a hybrid model including published information from Barrett, Austen & Morrell.
- NCP has recently implemented a Specific Energy / Breakage Distribution model for SAG Mill sizing.
- This model offers more circuit detail (e.g. PFD’s, PSDs, Mass Balance, Stream products) & covers the full comminution plant (crushing,/screening/milling/classification).
- FEA completed with a 3-dimensional Structural Finite Element package integrated to our 3D Modeling Package.
- Mill structures are sufficiently designed for max load in accordance with AAC323001
- Design incorporates Casting Simulations Fatigue Analysis in accordance with BS7608 Fluid Film Analysis with outputs integrated into FEA stress predictions
- Gearbox Design submitted for NCP Review to AGMA 2001.C95 NCP Specification SF > 2.3
- Bearing life L10basic >52,000hrs.
