Utilization of Filter Presses in Coal Mining – Diemme Filters Case Study

Published in AGH Journal of Mining and Geoengineering • Vol. 37 • No. 2 • 2013


The most popular method of the beneficiation of the finest particles of useful minerals with the size 1–0 is froth flotation. It is a common knowledge that the concentrate resulting from this process requires dewatering and then additional drying, e.g. thermal, in order to meet customers’ requirements. There are a number of methods used in the dewatering of mineral concentrates. The most popular technologies utilised at coal processing plants in Poland are: vacuum filters, e.g. disc type, screen-bowl decanter centrifuges and filter presses. The focus of this paper is on the latter technology which in many respects overshadows the former two. Check this site http://freexxx.cc
