20 March 2018 coalprotec 2018 continued the recovery of rare earth minerals in several speeches as some- thing that they consider to be a future for coal. David Lyons, acting gasification technology manager for NETL, will present new modular application for coal-based ener- gy production — miniature power plants based on coal-gasifiers. The session will close with "Coal to Carbon Fibers," by Matthew Weisenberger, associate director, carbon fuels for the University of Kentucky's Center of Applied Energy Research (CAER). He will provide updates on CAER's carbon fiber re- search program. The final session, Coal Cleaning Technologies, on Wednes- day afternoon, April 25, has four presentations. The session be- gins with Bob Hollis, president, Daniels Co., discussing a novel dense-medium circuit. He is expected to talk about three-pro- duct separators that have been developed by the Daniels Co.'s parent company in China. They have multiple installations in China and they are looking to introduce that concept to the American market. John Nielson, technical manager, coal for FLSmidth, will present "Optimization of Large Diameter HM Cyclone Perfor- mance Using Density Tracers." Tracers are effective way for prep plant operators to determine the efficiency of heavy-media pro- cessing systems. A presentation from Multotec Process Equipment will dis- cuss low-cut point spirals. With more than 40 years of experi- ence, Multotec has extensive application knowledge in this area of mineral processing. The session will close with Virginia Tech professor Jerry Lut- trell presenting "The Impact of Ultrafine Slimes on Fine Coal Cleaning." Dr. Luttrell (aka Mr. Coal Prep) is a popular speaker that delivers technical information in an interesting format. For the full day of workshops, CPSA offers seven Profession- al Development Hours. Delegates can also receive an addition- al seven hours by attending the three technical sessions and the keynote. All of this is available for $199. Registration is available at CoalProTec Exhibition in Print A total of 80 exhibitors will showcase equipment and services at CoalProTec 2018. "The difference is that the profits from the ex- hibit will go to support CPSA's efforts to foster a dialogue on coal preparation education," Laurila said. CPSA is a nonprofit organization and its mission is to ad- vance the knowledge of coal preparation. All of the proceeds will go toward supporting the CPSA Journal, books, short courses as well as a scholarships and, starting this summer, an internship program. What follows is a list of some of the 2018 CoalProTec ex- hibitors and supporters and what attendees can expect to see at their booths. The Daniels Co. The Daniels Co. is experienced dealing with engineering, de- signing and building coal preparation plants and material handling systems. It has completed 180 engineering projects in coal preparation plants and material handling facilities in the USA and overseas during in its more than 60 years of exis- tence. The Daniels Co. takes projects from prefeasibility stages through engineering, design, procurement, construction, com- missioning and startup. They also offer contract operation of any coal or material handling facility. They can also evaluate cur- rent operating facilities to determine the best manner to increase capacity and/or optimize process efficiency. Deister Concentrator Deister Concentrator has more than 113 years of experi- ence in manufacturing sepa- ration, sizing and de-watering equipment such as heavy-me- dium cyclones, classifying cy- clones, sieve bends, revolving feed slurry distributors and gravity shaking tables. Their smaller 6-inch, 3-inch and 2-inch classifying cyclones will be featured at CoalProTec 2018. The successful nesting of 2-inch cyclones in pressure vessels will also be featured. Derrick Corp. For decades, Derrick Corp. has commercialized several advance screening technologies for the coal industry. Derrick has helped processors produce cleaner coal, improve clean coal recovery, lower coal moisture, decrease dewatering costs as well as elimi- nate tailings ponds. One product that will be featured at the show is the Derrick Stack Sizer, which consists of up to five individual screen decks positioned one above the other and operating in par- allel. It redefines fine particle wet screening, offering high capaci- ty and exceptional efficiency in minimal space, the company said. Coupled with Derrick Polyweb screens, the Stack Sizer provides a unique combination. The development of fine mesh, high open area, urethane screen surfaces is one of Derrick's most notable contributions to the science of fine parti- cle separations, the company said. Its Polyweb high-per- formance surfaces combine long life, anti-blinding prop- erties, capacity, and precision, the com- pany said. Elgin With vertically integrated manufacturing and design capabili- ties, Elgin said it offers customers a unique experience focused on holistic solutions. Elgin specializes in the full integration of solids conveyance systems, PLC-driven automation systems, and product life-cycle management repair and remanufacturing services. Elgin has three divisions: Elgin Separation Solutions (liquid separation), Elgin Separation Solutions (solid separa-
