The main beneficiation method which is worldwide used is froth flotation. The process of froth flotation involves crushing, grinding to reduce the particles size to a fine size; and attrition, scrubbing and classifi ion. Crushing: In primary crushing, ore particle sizes are reduced to about 10 cm.
Conventional flotation cells are sometimes inefficient for separation of valuable minerals from gangue because of turbulence and lack of bubble size control. As an alternative, the technique of column flotation has been developed to utilize the principle of the counter current flow to improve separation in the flotation process. The column used in this study consisted of 4-cm internal diameter ...
Of these, froth flotation is the most common technology used for fine coal beneficiation. Froth flotation exploits the differences in surface hydrophobicity of the different constituent minerals and selectively separates the valuable minerals from gangue by attaching them to air bubbles and recovering them from the mineral laden froth .
Chord length was used to characterize droplets size, which was the square weighted sqr-wt mean diameter. 0.5% v/v collector was added to the beaker and stirred at 500 rpm for 30 s. During this time, the counts and chord length of droplets was collected with FBRM probe, while the microscopic images of droplets were captured by PVM probe.

Coal preparation, or beneficiation, is a series of operations that remove mineral matter i.e., ash from coal. Preparation relies on different mechanical operations, which will not be discussed in detail, to perform the separation, such as size reduction, size classifi ion, cleaning, dewatering and drying, waste disposal, and pollution control.
The principal separation in iron ore beneficiation, therefore, is between the iron minerals, hematite and/or magnetite, and silica, principally in the form of quartz. The use of flotation, either alone or in combination with magnetic separation, has been well established as an efficient method for rejecting silica from these iron ores.
