The article discusses the experience of using ceramic filter elements for dewatering coal pulp. The parameters and operating modes of the filtration unit were determined, flocculants and their dosage were selected for the most effective filtration process on a ceramic disk vacuum filter, and the regeneration mode was worked out.
