Minerals Processing - Coal Preparation Process

SONARtrac Solutions for the Coal Preparation Process


Coal preparation plants are designed to clean impurities, such as soil, sand and rock from coal, to ready it for transportation to power plants and coking facilities for use in steel processing. Monitoring flow through the coal preparation process can be difficult as the coal is abrasive and can cause inaccuracies and maintenance issues for intrusive instruments. CiDRA’s SONARtrac® volumetric flow meter has been designed specifically for applications like these. The non-contact, clamp-on design of the SONARtrac system enables slurry flows to be accurately measured without process down time or costly maintenance issues.
