The invention relates to the field of mining industry, in particular to the field of processing of brown coal, and can be used for obtaining purified carbon from brown coal.

Lignite is common and cheap fuel, but with a relatively low calorific value and high ash content.

Rough cut brown coal is composed of humic acid, bitumen and amorphous carbon, and inorganic mineral compounds that form its high ash content up to 50%.

Currently known various methods of coal - manual disassembly (rarely), the enrichment in heavy suspensions and solutions (including salt) class 200-50 mm, tsadka, class 50-12 μm in heavy suspensions in the hydrocyclone, class 10 μm, flotation, class 10 microns and others (e.g., fundamentals of metallurgy, vol. 1, part 1. - Metallurgizdat. 1961, str, RF patent № 2223828, IPC B03D 1/02).

The disadvantage of these methods is the processing of relatively large particles of raw materials, which leads to poor concentration. Mineral particles, including fine may be recovered in the tails only when fine grinding, which is not usually preceded by the traditional methods of enrichment or complex and expensive, such as flotation or enrichment in heavy suspensions in the hydrocyclone. In addition, all read the certain methods of grinding does not include the separation of the organic part of brown coal into its component parts.

Closest to the claimed is a method of obtaining carbon briquettes, including the processing of carbon in the mixture mixed with 30-50 wt.% water in rotary suction apparatus at a temperature of 15-70°within 5-50 cycles and the number of revolutions of the rotor of the cavitator 3000-12000 per minute (RF patent No. 2249612, IPC C10L 5/04, C10L 5/06, C10F 7/06). Production line used for the implementation of this method, containing the shredder and suction apparatus, can also be selected as the closest analogue to the claimed process line.

However, the known method and device for its implementation does not allow to reduce the ash content of the processed raw materials, since their use does not highlight the mineral component of the processed mixture.

The problem to which the invention is directed, is to create a highly effective method of obtaining purified carbon low ash from brown coal.

The technical result of using the proposed solution consists in obtaining purified carbon with very low ash content.

The above problem is solved and the specified technical result is achieved due to the fact that the method of obtaining purified carbon from brown coal, including the processing of the crushed mixture in a mixture with water in the cavitation apparatus is ATA, as a cavitation device uses suction apparatus, providing the disintegration of the organic part of the carbon-containing mixture to particle sizes less than 20 μm, as obtained after processing in the cavitation apparatus vodopadnoy mixture is sent to a settling tank where settling of mineral mass, which periodically remove the blade, and from the sump vodoohranoy the mixture is fed into the device, electrophoretic separation, from which are obtained in the form of carbon paste mixture is extracted. When this shock cavitation effect is carried out in a continuous flow pulp, vodopadnoy mixture was kept in the tank for at least 20 seconds, and the obtained paste carbonaceous mass is removed with a brush. Power cavitation device is chosen so that after the disintegration of the particle size of the inorganic part vodopadnoy mixture exceeded the size of the particles of the organic portion of the mixture.

Also the above problem is solved and the specified technical result is achieved due to the fact that in a production line, designed to produce purified carbon from brown coal, including the shredder and suction apparatus, added a sump connected by pipeline with the cavitation apparatus, and device El is trafaretnaja division, United pipeline with the sump.

This shredder can be made in the form of mill, and as the device electrophoretic separation can be used electrophoretic drums or disks of at least two.

Processing the crushed mixture in a mixture with water in the cavitation apparatus providing the disintegration of the organic part of the carbon-containing mixture to a particle size less than 20 microns, allows you to split the processed raw materials for organic and inorganic constituents. The use of the cavitation effect enables the creation of internal stresses in the particles of brown coal, sufficient to transfer its organic part in the solution and polyolene state, emitting precipitated inorganic mineral particles (up to 80%). The use of a settling tank allows you to bring in the dump phase precipitate particles of mineral raw materials. This significantly reduces the ash content of lignite. To obtain the maximum possible sediment mixture is maintained in the sump at least 20 seconds, and the power cavitation device is chosen so that after the disintegration of the particle size of the inorganic part vodopadnoy mixture exceeded the size of the particles of the organic mixture. As polyolene particles of amorphous carbon have a negative charge, they is there to be extracted from the pulp electrophoretic method, that also improves the quality extracted from brown coal carbon. Additionally, due to the very small particle size carbon due to forces of adhesion is samoregulirovanie paste of carbon, which allows no special actions (pressing) to form optionally briquettes.

The invention is illustrated by the drawing, which shows a block diagram of the inventive process line.

Production line consists of mill 1, which can be used with standard mill, such as ball, connected through the first pipeline 2 with cavitation apparatus 3, in which, for example, used rotary pulsation apparatus, hydraulic shock and cavitation action described in the application for the patent of the Russian Federation No. 2004105762 connected with the second pipe 4 with the tank 5, which are connected to the third pipe 6 and the fourth line 7, the latest the other end is connected to the device electrophoretic separation 8. As the device electrophoretic separation can be used standard electrophoretic drums or disks of at least two.

The inventive method can be implemented using the claimed process line as follows.

Brown coal in bulk supplied to the primary MEAs is Lonnie in the mill 1. Grinding produce up to 100 μm. In the mill 1 crushed material is mixed with water. Then the material obtained by the first pipeline 2 in the form of a slurry is fed to the disintegration suction apparatus 3. Next, produce the disintegration of the ground particles of the organic component to polugolodnomu state of amorphous carbon, translation of humic acids and bitumen in solution and highlight the inorganic part in the form of particles less than 100 microns. Disintegrated mass in the form of slurry is directed through a second pipeline 4 in the tank 5, where the sedimentation of inorganic mineral mass, which is periodically removed by the third pipe 6 in the blade. For maximum sediment slurry, before sending in the fourth line 7, stand in the tank for at least 20 seconds. From the sump 5 slurry with an organic part on the fourth line 7, made for example in the form of a trough, is directed to an electrophoretic device for the separation. Due to the fact that the particles of the components included in the composition of brown coal, have different charges, they settle on the drums (discs) of different polarity. Particles of amorphous carbon and residual silicon oxide deposited on the drum that is charged positively. The oxides of iron, calcium, etc. are deposited on the drum (disc), negatively charged.

USAID is installed on the reel (s) particles are removed with a brush in the paste form. Pasta with drum, positively charged, and sent to the granulation and drying (amorphous carbon), and with drum, negatively charged, in the dump. The resulting solution of humic acids and bitumen disposed.

The inventive method and production line for its implementation can achieve a technical result, which enables enrichment of brown coal, its division into parts with the selection in a separate fraction of amorphous carbon (actually cleaned coal) - analog coke without the use of pyrolysis and chemical reagents, which makes the proposed technology is environmentally safe.
