Elmarie Pieters presented her final project presentation as a bursary student at the technical meeting in November 2018. Her presentation titled “Coal Benefication” covered the dry beneficiation of -13.2mm +0.5mm South African coal using an air dense medium fluidization bed.

The main aim of her study was to investigate the influence of operating parameters (PSD, coal to medium ratio and vibration) on the performance of an ADMFB coal separator when feeding -13.2mm South African ROM coals.  Her full presentation can be obtained from Johan de Korte on johan.dekorte@sacoalprep.co.za
