11.10 Coal Cleaning

Fine coal processing and coarse coal processing use similar operations and equipment to separate the contaminants. The primary difference is the severity of operating parameters. The majority of coal cleaning processes use upward currents or pulses of a fluid such as water to fluidize a bed of crushed coal and impurities.
