Surface Properites Of Coal And Their Effects On The Selective Oil Agglomeration Process , Xiaoping Qiu Jan 1992

Surface Properites Of Coal And Their Effects On The Selective Oil Agglomeration Process , Xiaoping Qiu

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The heat of immersion of coal in water and various organic liquids provides a useful means for characterizing the surface of the material, while the oil-water-coal, three-phase contact angle provides a characterization of the coal surface as well as the interactions among oil, water, and coal. Such characterizations may provide an indication of how well the coal will respond to cleaning by the froth flotation and oil agglomeration methods which are controlled by the surface properties of the material;The heat of immersion of two types of coal in water and in several different organic liquids was determined with a ...

An Analysis Of The Kinetics For Oil Agglomeration Of Coal , David Tyson

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In batch tests with graphite, 2 min. were required to produce a maximum shift towards larger particle sizes in the distribution curves for a stirring speed of 21,000 rpm, slurry concentration of 2 wt%, and oil dosage of 10 v/w%. For a stirring speed of 650 rpm, 4 min. were required for the maximum shift. When the oil was pre-emulsified and then added to the slurry, the maximum shift required 1 min. at 650 rpm. In all these cases, the distribution curves showed particle size reductions after their maximum shift. In the case of 650 rpm, the shift ...
