The effect of blending of bituminous and sub-bituminous

Mar 12, 2016 · This work investigates the characteristics of ash behavior including fusibility and deposition when blending both bituminous and subbituminous coals in a pulverized coal combustion. Two coals used in Japan were used for this study bituminous (Bit-A) and subbituminous coal (Sub-A). In order to investigate, the blending ratio was changed.

Coal Anthracite, Bituminous, Coke, Pictures, Formation, Uses

Sub bituminous coal is a lignite that has been subjected to an increased level of organic metamorphism. This metamorphism has driven off some of the oxygen and hydrogen in the coal. That loss produces coal with a higher carbon content (71 to 77% on a dry ash-free basis).

Sub-bituminous coal Wikipedia

Sub-bituminous coal is a type of coal whose properties range from those of lignite to those of bituminous coal and are used primarily as fuel for steam-electric power generation. Sub-bituminous coals may be dull, dark brown to black, soft and crumbly at the lower end of the range, to bright jet-black, hard, and relatively strong at the upper end.
