India’s coal consumption was reported at 423.967 TOE mn in Dec 2017 but the moisture in coal is one of the biggest industrial problems, the moisture contained coal reduces the machinability, productivity, combustion capacity, and also calorific value of coal and coal-related operations. Industries are facing these issues and have come up with couple of traditional methods to de-moisturize coal, but this industrial method also has various adverse impacts on production capacity, larger processing cost, required large area, physical and chemical properties of coal. The traditional method also creates adverse impact on the life and health of human operators who are directly engaged with these traditional methods. Coal is the major source of power in industries like the Cement industry, Power generation stations, and others. The present experimental setup is designed and manufactured to solve the above-mentioned problems. The compact electrical furnace and semi-automated system have the capacity to de- moisturize 1 ton of coal per day for heavy industrial use. The specialized design of the experimental setup has the capacity to reduce processing costs and increases the production rate of coal without damaging the physical and chemical property of coal. The present experimental setup required 70% less land, 50% less processing cost, 60% less manpower than the traditional method but also it increases the production rate of industries by 50% than the traditional.
