DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE ASPECTS OF COAL FLOTATION

Xstrata Technology, South Africa ABSTRACT Flotation is commonly used to treat fine coal (typically below 500 microns in size) and is a complex, three-phase process that is controlled by factors which can be divided into three facets: coal, chemistry and machine. It is most often used for treating

Reverse flotation of coal—A novel way for the

Jan 01, 1988 South African coals have a much higher ash content than European coals. Consequently, ash entrainment is often a problem in the flotation of South African coal, since it adversely affects the concentrate grade. It has thus been very difficult to produce a low ash metallurgical export coal by this process.

Environmental Performance Assessment of Froth Flotation for

The South African coal mining industry generates large volumes of coal ultrafine waste (< 150 microns) each year, with a significant amount being dumped in tailing slurry dams. These slurry dams have been associated with prolonged pollution and loss of valuable resources. In the two stage flotation process developed at the University of Cape Town,

Jan 01, 1991 A South African bituminous coal was used for the investigation. Bench scale flotation experiments were conducted in a Denver cell. Density separations prior to surface characterization of the coal were conducted in ZnCl 2 /H 2 O solutions. Functional group analyses were based on chemical methods introduced by Blom et al. (1957).

An investigation into column flotation of South African coals

The principal aim of this thesis is to investigate whether column flotation can be used to recover saleable, particularly low-ash quality, coal from South African coal fines which are presently discarded. Samples of thickener underflow fines from the Durnacol, Kleinkopje and Greenside Collieries were used in laboratory column testwork.

Coal in South Africa Wikipedia

South Africa produces in excess of 255 million tonnes of coal (2011 estimate) and consumes almost three quarters of that domestically. As of 2018, South Africa was the seventh largest producer and consumer of coal in the world. This large industry, means that as of 2015 about 80,000 workers, or .5% of total employment, was from the coal industry, down from a peak in 1981 of 135,000 workers.

An important conclusion is that South African coals are floatable, and flotation selectivity can be obtained, provided process parameters are controlled within a narrow range. A more in-depth study of the liberation characteristics of the coal and gangue and of the individual macerals is needed because only this will limit the final result.
