METHODS FOR THE DETERMINATION OF SODIUM IN THE PROCESS OF WATER WASHING OF SALTY COAL
Coal with high content of alkaline and alkaline earth metals (salty coal) occupies its definite place in an energy reserve of the country. Standard methods to assess the dynamics of the release of salts (mainly sodium chloride) into the aqueous solution during the desalting of salty coal were used. The advantages and disadvantages of existing methods for determining the sodium content in aqueous solutions are considered. The principle of operation of the upgraded spectral complex KSVU-5 based on the determination of the content of alkali metals in aqueous solutions by the method of atomic emission analysis is presented. The remarkable reproducibility of the measurements results on the spectral complex of small and large concentration of Na in solution is shown. The results of an experimental study of the desalting process by water washing of salty coal samples of various size classes (in the range 0-5 mm) and analysis of the obtained solutions by the spectral complex KSVU-5 are presented. Comparison of the sodium concentration in solutions during the desalting of salty coal obtained by atomic absorption and atomic emission analysis was performed. The possibility of using express analysis (Conductivity/TDS) to determine the concentration of sodium in solution is shown. Ref. 8, Fig. 6.
