Title

Enhanced Dust Suppression Using Surfactants

Abstract

The surfactants used in the study were first chosen on the basis of their HLB (Hydrophile-Lipophile Balance) value, and later tested in order to select the right type and amount of surfactants to give the best performance. Both static and dynamic tests were latter conducted using different types of surfactants to examine their respective wetting effectiveness on coal particles. Experimental results show close correlation with the theoretically calculated efficiency that is based on a horizontal tunnel and a solid-cone water spray.
