Coal Washing

Coal Washing

 

Although often thought of as a dirty material processing coal requires its ‘washing’. This is the process of separating the coal from other materials so a high grade product can be obtained.

Coal washing is an essential part of the coal extraction process and chiefly relies upon the movement of water and aggregates. We have the experience needed to advise you in your pump choice from our extensive range of abrasion resistant pumping solutions. Minimising your maintenance costs and minimising down time by using the right solution to your problem is of primary importance to Atlantic Pumps and our rapid response times mean that solutions can be reached quickly and effectively.
