Heterogeneity in procured coal with varying percentages of combustible and non-combustible material brings another challenge to the coal consumer that is to continuously measure the resistance of coal to crushing. The measure of grindability can be obtained by using Hard Grove Grindability Index (HGI).
On popular demand from our customers Insmart has developed a compact coal grindability index determination unit. The unit is constructed in strict accordance with IS 4433 as well as ASTM D 409 and conforms to proposed procedures for the determination of the Hardgrove Grindability Index of coal and coke.
The Hardgrove Grindability Index value provides information for determining grinding power consumption and pulverizer capacities.
