Field Evaluation of Resiliently Clad Screen Decks.
NTIS: PB/82-204876 :37 pages
This report describes the field evaluation of a composite material developed for use in coal screening applications. Tests were performed at the River King preparation plant of Peabody Coal Company Because it provided parallel process flow and met standard coal- cleaning requirements. Comparisons could be made between the adjacent resilient and steel screen decks under similar operating conditions. Noise reductions of 1 to 6 dba were realized in the near field. Although the test period did not determine resilient screen life, indications are favorable for their longevity.
