1.1 This test method covers a laboratory procedure for conducting a single froth flotation test on fine coal (that is, nominal top size of 600 μm (No. 30 U.S.A. Standard Sieve Series) or finer) using a defined set of starting point conditions for the operating variables.
1.2 This test method does not completely cover specific procedures for the investigation of flotation kinetics. Such a test is specialized and highly dependent upon the objective of the data.
1.3 Since optimum conditions for flotation are usually not found at the specified starting points, suggestions for development of grade/recovery curves are given in Appendix X1. Such a procedure is very case-specific and involves running a series of flotation tests in which some of the operating variables are changed in order to optimize conditions for either yield or grade.
1.4 Laboratory flotation results need not be representative of the flotation response of coal in full-scale situations, but a consistent baseline can be established against which full-scale performance can be compared.
1.5 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.7 Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for reagents used are to be obtained from suppliers who are to be consulted before work with any chemicals used in this test method.
