Impact of Crusher-Type and Pre-Screening on Fines Generation

Fine coal particles create dust problems in material handling and are more costly to clean in the preparation plant, so minimizing the generation of fines in the crushing process can provide tangible benefits to the mining company. The hardness of the coal probably has the greatest impact upon product fineness, but the type of crusher employed and the crusher settings also have significant impacts upon the ultimate product fineness.
