Coal is a readily combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock normally occurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds. Coal has very wide using fields in our daily life. SBM crushers and Grinding mills are neccssary equipments in coal processing.
Coal is a readily combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock normally occurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds. The harder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure. Coal is composed primarily of carbon along with variable quantities of other elements, chiefly sulphur, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen.
- Coal as fuel
- Coking and use of coke
- Ethanol production
- Industrial processes
- Cultural usage
- Coal as a traded commodity
Coal Crushing Plant
In order to use coal more rationally, efficiently and effectively, the coal need to be processed and crushed into different sizes, 0 ~ 25 mm particle size for coal gas stove, 25 ~ 8 mm for steam locomotive, 25 ~ 6 mm for the industrial furnace, and coal power plant requires grain coal of 0 ~ 25mm. So coal processing includes coal crushing and coal grinding. Coal crushing plant consist of many types of crushers and Grinding mills. Coal crushers including primary Jaw crusher, secondary Impact crusher and Cone crusher etc. Coal mill include Ball mill, Raymond mill, Vertical mill etc.
Coal Crushing and Grinding Process
If the coal block is bigger than the mill’s max input size, it must be crushed before grinding. The crushing plant common includes Vibrating feeder as feeding material to Jaw crusher, which is as primary Jaw crusher. If need secondary crusher, Cone crusher or Impact crusher can be used. After primary crushing, the coal can be feeding to Ball mill to fine grinding. To increase Ball mill effective, the vertical coal mill or coarse powder mill can be setted before Ball mill as pre-grinding.
