moisture coal effects

  • Coal assay - Wikipedia

    Moisture may occur in four possible forms within coal: Surface moisture: water held on the surface of coal particles or macerals; Hygroscopic moisture: water held by capillary action within the microfractures of the coal; Decomposition moisture: water held within the coal's decomposed organic compounds

    Moisture can also cause coal to freeze in rail cars in the winter, which can be a major issue in power plants in colder climates. Moisture is used to define low-rank coals in some rank classification systems, and is an important criteria for determining coal grade in low-rank lignite coals.

    3. Moisture in coal contributes to spontaneous heating because it assists the oxidation process. Moisture content should be limited to 3 percent; sulphur content should be limited to 1 percent, "as mined." Coal having high moisture content should be segregated and used as quickly as possible.

  • Effects of moisture on the spontaneous heating of stored coal

    The effects of oxygen, moisture, initial temperature, volatile matter content, and rank of coal were studied. The primary role of moisture was to supply an initial heat of adsorption which raised the temperature to a point where the oxidation reactions were self-sustaining.
