Coal recovery from flotation tailing of eastern Alborz coal cleaning plant by oil agglomeration
|Location||The 24 Symposium of Geosciences|
|Holding Date||27 August 2007|
The purpose of this study is coal recovery from the slime tailing flotation of eastern Alborz coal cleaning plant using oil agglomeration of vegetable oil. The recovery of coal not only prevent from coal firing, but also keep the environmental safe. For this research, the -300 micron fraction of coal sample were studied for oil agglomeration using different oils that Ladan vegetable oil was selected. By using of optimum amount of vegetable oil, valuable coal slime were recovered and the sah content were reduced from 65.32% to 38.89%. for the optimum condition, coal recovery and separation efficiency of combustible coal were 82.01 and 54.26%, respectively.
