LIAOA, Yinfei; CAOA, Yijun; HUB, Zhongbo  e  TAOC, Xiuxiang. A new preparation scheme for a difficult-to-float coking coal by column flotation following grinding. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2015, vol.115, n.2, pp.161-164. ISSN 2411-9717.

A new preparation scheme for a difficult-to-float coking coal from the Kailuan Mine, Tangshan, China was investigated. The results showed that grinding followed by column flotation was beneficial for obtaining products with low ash content. The positive effect of grinding on the coal floatability is attributed to the liberation of intergrowths and coal surface improvement. Tests indicated that 10 minutes was the optimum grinding time, and overgrinding resulted in a deterioration in flotation performance. With a grinding time of 10 minutes, conventional flotation had potential to yield a product with around 12.42% ash content and 69.15% combustible recovery. Column flotation can reduce the product ash content to 11.15% and increase combustible recovery to 74.47%. Consistently better flotation results reveal that column flotation is more efficient than conventional flotation for such fines.
