An independent coal industry consultant, Weir International Inc., conducted an extensive 18-day testing procedure over the trial period at a Northern App coal mine. It determined that Somerset’s Sub325® fine coal recovery system is “effective in dewatering the fine coal slurry and producing a saleable dewatered fine coal product.” The chart below details some results from the study.

“I’ve seen it! I was involved in a four-month trial and we captured a surprising amount of fines at moistures between 15 and 23%. We saw secondary benefits that no one knew would occur. Our chemical costs to the thickener went down dramatically. Our screen bowl moisture dropped when we removed the recirc stream. We were able to adjust our flotation cells to put more coal out – incredible!”
