Night is falling in a coal beneficiation plant, somewhere in South Africa.
After a busy day, our commissioning activity for 2 units of X-Line screens is successfully accomplished.
Our objective was to deslime coal at 75 micron: a typical task for our rectangular X-Line screens within mining industry, which come into play when sieving gets tough!
Some more process insight:
- Task: beneficiating of the coal waste stream
- screening at 75 µm
- 25-35% solids concentration
- over 90% efficiency
- expected yield of +40%
- Technology: X-Line Multi-frequency screening, up to 500 G force directly on the mesh
- Results: Dramatic ash content reduction and the increase of the Calorific Value to marketable specifications
Here are some pictures from our commissioning activity:
