The effect of particle size on treating fine waste generated in the coal preparation plant.
Proceedings of the First International Conference on Environmental Issues and Waste Management in Energy and Minerals Products, August 27-29, 1990, Secaucus, New Jersey. Yegulalp TM, Kim K, eds., Columbus, OH: Battelle Press, 1992 Jan; :199-207
The U.S. Bureau of Mines has investigated dewatering techniques for fine coal refuse in both laboratory and field tests. Data indicate that present technology now being used in the industry will have difficulty in achieving high solids content and low polymer dosage for ultrafine waste expected from new coal-cleaning technologies. Experimental data are presented to show that dewatering of fine refuse will be difficult. Factors pertaining to thse problems and recommendations for future research are discussed.
