800mm Diameter test unit G-Cell supplied to SIU for research and development

(General Information Release January 2004)

Proposed Application and Scope

The G-Cell will be used to evaluate performance for fine coal on a semi-continuous pilot scale in coal preparation plants operating in the USA as well as batch testwork at the pilot plant facilities of the Dept. of Mining & Mineral Resources Engineering in Carbondale.

SIU will undertake work aimed at conducting a scientific study to investigate the best potential of the Imhoflot G-Cell in comparison to the optimum flotation cleanability provided by standard release analysis.

MMS has supplied an Imhoflot G08 G-Cell pilot plant to:
