Title: Development of the electroacoustic dewatering (EAD) process for fine/ultrafine coal

Abstract

Battelle, in cooperation with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) CQ, Inc., Ashbrook-Simon-Hartley (ASH), and Professor S. H. Chiang of the University of Pittsburgh, is developing an advanced process for the dewatering of fine and ultrafine coals. The advanced process, called Electroacoustic Dewatering (EAD), capitalizes on the adaptation of synergistic effects of electric and acoustic fields to commercial coal dewatering systems, such as belt filter presses. The project has the following objectives: To validate the expected technical feasibility and energy conservation/economic benefits of the EAD process as applied to fine ({minus}100 mesh) and ultrafine ({minus}325 mesh) coal; and to obtain data from a continuous, process research unit (PRU) in order to conduct a reliable economic analysis and to design commercial EAD filters as well as to promote adaptation of the process by the coal preparation industry. Progress is reported. 2 figs., 4 tabs.
