Overexposure to airborne respirable crystalline silica dust (referred to here as silica dust) can cause silicosis, a serious and potentially fatal lung disease. Mining continues to have some of the highest incidences of worker-related silicosis, and the mining machine operator is the occupation most commonly associated with the disease NIOSH 2003.
Nov 12, 2020 Extracting, processing, and transporting coal generates significant amounts of coal dust, of which silica is a component. While exposure to coal dust can impair miners health, silica is classified as a carcinogen and is significantly more harmful. Silica exposure can cause lung diseases, such as coal workers

The sepn. of silica from coal by reverse flotation is a kinetic process in which silica floats first followed by clean coal. The selective recovery of silica was possible only in a very narrow range of DTAB dosages and the amt. of DTAB needed for best selectivity was a function of coal rank.
Nov 16, 2020 In 2014, MSHA did institute a rule that reduced the limit on exposure to coal dust, of which silica is a component, from 2.0 to 1.5 milligrams per cubic meter of air. That rule has significantly lowered incidences of high silica exposure, with the percent of samples that exceeded the recommended silica levels falling from 57% in 1990 to 6% in 2019.
Silica is typically received in the form of metallurgical grade gravel. This gravel is 99.5% silica, and is 3 x 1 or 6 x 1 in (8 x 3 cm or 15 x 3 cm) in size. The coal is usually of low ash content (1-3% to minimize calcium, aluminum, and iron impurities), contains around 60% carbon, and is sized to match that of the gravel.
Coal gasification coarse slag (CGCS) is solid waste generated during coal gasification. The mainly treatment method of CGCS is storage and landfill, which causes severe environmental pollution and waste of land resources. Sodium silicate can be synthesized using CGCS after impurities are removed for the high content of amorphous silica.
Polarized light microscopy revealed large amounts of birefringent mineral dust particles consistent with silica and silicates carbonaceous coal dust was less prominent. On the basis of chest imaging studies, specimens with features of silicosis were significantly associated (P 0.047) with rounded (type p, q, or r) opacities, whereas grade 3 ...
Electrostatic separation has great potential as a fine particle separator (i.e. 1mm) in industrial minerals processing application, especially in arid areas where water supply is limited. In the current study, particle tribocharging kinetics was evaluated using a model system comprised of copper, pure coal, silica and ceramic.
Coal is usually received on railroad cars or barges. Conveyor belts transfer the coal as needed to mixing bins where the various types of coal are stored. The coal is transferred from the mixing bins to the coal crusher where it is pulverized to a preselected size between 0.15 and 3.2 mm (0.006 and 0.13 in.).
Processing of mesoporous silica materials (MCM-41) from coal fly ash Halina Misran, Ramesh Singh, Shahida Begum, Mohd Ambar Yarmo 1. Introduction Mesoporous silica with high surface area and pore volumes has gained considerable attention since the discovery of mesoporous molecular sieves (M41S) by scientist at Mobil Oil 14.
Fly Ash a very fine, powdery material composed mostly of silica resulting from the combustion of finely ground coal in a boiler and being drafted by the off-gases into a dust collector. Bottom Ash a coarse, angular ash particle that is too large to be carried up into the off-gases, so it drops to the bottom of the coal furnace.
May 07, 2007 An alternative silica source, the coal fly ash (CFA) that is formed as a by-product in coal-fired power plant during combustion of pulverized coal and air. Coal combustion method contributes approximately 37% of the total electricity production in the world . This in turn generates a huge amount of fly ash, up to 5.5 million tonnes/year
The coal processing plant was decommissioned in 1955. The Site was developed in the early 1970s to process sand mined from the Reserve Silica Reclamation site, where sandstone was mined from 1968 to 2007. The sand was disaggregated and washed to remove fines.
Coal typically contains variable but substantial amounts of mineral matter, of which quartz is an important component. The major exposures to coal dust occur during mining and processing of coal. In these operations the exposure includes dusts generated not only from the coal but also from adjacent rock strata and other sources.

Sep 24, 2019 Other elements can be added to the molten silica to make alloys for the semi-conductor industry. The Blue Gem coal of southeastern Kentucky is widely considered one of the best coal-carbon sources for silicon metal in the world. It is an unusual coal with very low sulfur ( 1%) and exceptionally low ash (1.5%) yields.
Nov 16, 2020 The Mine Safety and Health Administration is not doing enough to protect coal miners from deadly silica dust, according to a new report from the Department of Labors Office of the Inspector General. The IG found that MSHAs standards for exposure to deadly silica dust were out of date, and MSHA lacked the ability to issue fines when coal companies violate air
May 22, 2016 One of the first commercial applications of a medium to effect a sink-float separation used a fine silica sand suspension for treating anthracite coal and is known as the Chance process. The method used for cleaning the medium is decantation which limits the minimum grain size of the solid in the suspension.

Silica. Also called silica sand or quartz sand, silica is silicon dioxide (SiO 2). Silicon compounds are the most significant component of the Earths crust. Since sand is plentiful, easy to mine and relatively easy to process, it is the primary ore source of silicon. The metamorphic rock, quartzite, is another source.
