coal optimisation workshop rev.1,• dense medium separation is one of the most efficient processes available in the size range 0.5 –50 mm • the cut density shift is less pronounced in dense medium separation • the running costs of a dense medium plant is higher conclusions coarse particles • dense medium separation is more flexible • in black and white or very easy.cyclone separators selection guide | engineering360,because cyclone separators do not incorporate filter media or moving parts, the pressure drop (therefore, operating costs) and maintenance requirements tend to be low. they can also be constructed to withstand harsh operating conditions, and since separation in cyclones is a dry process, the equipment is less prone to moisture corrosion..

heavy media separation (hms) or dense media separation (dms) cyclones (hydrocyclones) are designed specifically for cleaning applications. within the cyclone, weight and gravity separate the lighter material from the heavier material, as the media’s buoyancy effect forces the lighter solids to the cyclone’s centre, where they float upward and out through the vortex.

at the same time there have been new advances in cyclone technology. in many parts of the world a shortage of water impacts mining projects. as water is an inherent part of the hydro-cyclone operation, the sand production by cyclone is an integral part of the water management of a tailing management facility.[all papers were considered for technical and language appropriateness by the organizing

the dense medium separation process (dms) is a mature technology, and is widely used in mineral and coal processing. the dense medium cyclone (dmc) is the most ubiquitous of the dms vessels in use, and deservedly so. it is efficient (when run properly), can process both coarse and fine sizes, and has a relatively small footprint.
the dense medium cyclone is a mature and efficient process. •. the behaviour of the medium is process-determining. •. semi-empirical models exist which can be used for process design and optimisation. •. economics will be greatly improved with larger cyclones and lower heads, as in coal preparation. •. the dmc can compete effectively as a process
dense medium cyclones have been widely used to clean coarse coal (plus 30 mesh). efficiency of separation, tolerance of near gravity material and separation density control being the primary advantage of the systems.
it has theability to make sharp separations at any required density, with a high degree ofefficiency even in the presence of high percentages of near-density material.the density of separation can be closely controlled, within a relative density of+0.005kg/l, -0.005kg/l and can be maintained, under normal conditions, forindefinite periods.
dense medium cyclones (dmc) have been found to be effective in treating particle size fractions between 3-inch and 100 mesh, however, not typical done in a single unit. the dmc application for treating 16 x 100 mesh material is limited due to significant magnetite loss resulting from inefficiencies on

in designing the dense medium process the design houses typically ensures that the minimum medium to coal ratios are still being adhered to under maximum feed conditions. however, once the plant design feed rate is being exceeded, these medium to coal ratios can
in the production of the diamond plant, heavy medium separation/ dense medium separation processing technology is very important, directly related to energy utilization, resource conservation, and production efficiency, considered to be one of the most effective methods of gravity separation. dms technology can be used for coal washing and separation of diamonds and other
although coal-washing dense medium cyclones can be extremely efficient, they continue to lose yield due to inadequate attention to simple issues such as spigot size and control of medium density, particularly in plants with parallel separators.
how cyclones fail: design/ fabrication errors • no dust receiver • short outlet pipes • dished heads • poor or non existent airlocks • instruments or access ports installed into cyclonic flow streams • related equipment not designed for cyclonic flow • inlet elbows, transitions, or other obstructions
• the medium density, • the medium to coal ratio, • the density of the medium in the underflow, and • the volumetric amount of particles exiting the cyclone via the spigot and/or vortex finder. the first four factors are clearly understandable, but the last two raise the issue of the stability of the medium and particle crowding in the cyclone.
these challenges. it is important to consider the elements of risk in order to understand how disasters unfold. risks are a function of the hazard (e.g. cyclones earthquake, flood, or fire), the exposure of people and assets to hazards, and the conditions of vulnerability of the exposed population or assets.
washing and separation of coal improves its saleability. the end product has: higher calorific value. lower ash content. potentially lower sulphur content. there are two main systems for the processing of coal. the first uses a natural medium (water and raw material) and secondly a dense medium
lower cyclone pressure results in inefficiencies while high pressure increases the centrifugal force beyond its design specifications, which increases cyclone wear rate. ensuring your cyclone operates in the correct pressure range enables optimum cyclone operation, helps reduce costly potential downtime and improves downstream processing performance.
the drewboy inclined-wheel vessel (shallow bath) dense-medium baths usually treat coarse coal in the -300 mm + 3 mm size range. the throughput of dense-medium baths ranges anywhere from 10 to 1,000 t/h. 1b) dense medium cyclones there are two main types of dense medium cyclones; cylindroconical (figure 1.5) and cylindrical (figure 1.6).
the classic system for the separation of powder and drying air is a cyclone or an arrangement of a number of cyclones in series or in parallel. the residual fines content in the outgoing air is very high, 100 – 200 mg/nm 3. introducing bag filters allow the residual fines content to be lowered to less than 10 mg/nm 3. the filter bags are dedusted by means of regular pulses of compressed air.
attended to before the balls grow large enough to block the cyclone nozzle. an operating technique of stopping the dmc feed on a time basis has been successfully employed but causes excessive production losses. the audio technique has solved this issue and is commercially
