Steam Coal Analysis

Never has it been more important to know the chemical and physical characteristic of coal used for the generation of electricity.

For coal producers to be profitable they need to know exactly what is being mined, washed, and shipped. Margins are just too thin for producers to take penalties for missing contract specifications. Nor can producers afford to greatly exceed contract specifications either. Delivering a premium product without a premium price is a terrible waste of valuable resources.

For the electrical utilities, knowing and anticipating the coal’s chemical composition enables the coal-fired boilers to operate at a maximum efficiency while greatly reducing and controlling emissions.
