Abstract. Coal flotation is a complex process involving several phases (particles, oil droplets and air bubbles). These phases simultaneously interact with each other and with other species such as the molecules of a promoting reagent and dissolved ions in water. The physical and chemical interactions determine the outcome of the flotation process.

A typical particle size distribution of microwave-treated reject coal is shown in Fig. 2. From the figure it can be seen that more than 60% of the particles have a diameter of 138 μm. Almost the same trend of size distribution has been observed for other samples.

FIGURE 7-1. World distribution of coal resources and reserves. [Source: W. Fulkerson et al., Scientific American, September 1990, p. 129.] The total amount of coal in the world is so large (equivalent to about 150,000 quadrillion BTU) that the possession of even a small fraction represents a major economic benefit (see Review Question 7-2).

Gao, 2017). They showed that the grinding condition, size distribution, liberation degree and pulp aeration have a positive impact on the separation of chalcopyrite. The chromium grinding media improved the recovery of chalcopyrite and the depressing of the activated pyrite by changing the pulp potential.

mill, impact breakage dominated, causing the collector to remain on the surface of newly produced particles. In the stirred mill, attrition breakage removed collector from the surface, and decreased particle floatability. This was further confirmed by the analysis of collector intensity on mineral surfaces on a size-by-size basis by ToF-SIMS.

The grind or particle size distribution (PSD), which is quantified by percentage of pulverized coal passing 74 microns (200 mesh), affects the pulverizer throughput in power plants. The finer the grind, the lower the throughput. For a power plant to maintain combustion levels, throughput needs to be high.

To summarize the coal mill controls, they may be divided basically into two major categories:. 1. To control the quality of coal being sent to the burners located on the furnace walls. The word quality here means the temperature and fineness of the PF. The set temperature values are dependent on the percentage of volatile matter that exists in the main fuel.
