Quality of applied hard coal fuel to combustion processes influence significantly on process efficiency and effects of its influence on surrounding environment. It is particularly important issue in time of Clean Coal Technologies (CTW). The paper presents the analysis of hard coal beneficiation in a jig for getting an optimal recovery of useful fraction in concentrate (combustible matter) and not useful fraction (ash and sulfur). On the basis of industrial sampling of coal dust jig the density analysis of collected samples of concentrate and tailings was performed in laboratory conditions. In separated fractions of separation products the yields of products were calculated and the contents of ash and total sulfur were marked in them. On the basis of the results of density and chemical analyzes, separation products balance and appropriate calculations the Fuerstenau beneficiation curves were plotted which allowed to evaluate process and compare results of beneficiation of material containing various components. This is a different approach to evaluation of coal beneficiation effects, so far being used mainly for multi-component metals ores. Furthermore, the evaluation of separation preciseness on the basis of separation curves and factors was done and the statistical analysis of mutual correlations of analyzed parameters was done.
