Alva, K P and Khare, N B (1985) Sampling in Coal Handling and Preparation Plants. In: Proceedings of National Seminar on Mineral Processing and IX Annual Technical Convention of Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers, 11th & 12th March 1985, National Metallurgical Laboratory(CSIR) Jamshedpur.



Sampling is the art of withdrawing a small quantity of material from a large lot in such a manner that the smaller fraction represents proportionally the same spec-ific composition and quality as present in the original entire lot. This is a difficult task and unless due atte-ntion is given to the sampling system white designing a plant it is not possible to achieve satisfactory results in our day to day practice. Attempt has been made in the present article to setforth some practical aspects of sampling and sampling procedure. Readers should use their own discretion and judgement to modify these techniques to suit their particular requirements always keeping in mind that the procedure adopted remained reliable and accurate.
