Tests were carried out on a 150 mm heavy medium cyclone test rig treating coal in the size range - 13 +0.5 mm. A total of twenty seven experiments were carried out by varying the parameters like vortex finder diameter, spigot diameter and inlet feed pressure. The effect of these variables on the performance of the 150 mm Heavy Medium Cyclone was investigated. The results indicate that it is possible to achieve about 30.1% clean coal at an ash content of 18.5% at a feed pressure of 10 lb/in2, vortex diameter of 63.75 mm and spigot diameter of 31.5 mm. The tromp curves obtained from operating the cyclone gave a probable error of 0.04, indicating good separation efficiency.
