Coal Rank Classification SpringerLink

Jun 09, 2016  The rank of a coal is characteristic of the stage reached by it in course of coalification. The development from peat through the stages of lignite, subbituminous, and bituminous coals to anthracite and meta-anthracite is termed coalification. Coalification or coal metamorphism is a function of heat and pressure acting over a period of time.

Coal Rank - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Coal rank is a measure of coal maturity and is the most fundamental parameter that relates both to the coalification history and the utilisation potential of a coal. Figure 14.3 shows the change in coal chemical and physical properties with rank from bituminous to anthracite coals (Teichmuller and Teichmuller, 1975).As the rank increases, the vitrinite reflectance, carbon content, and C/H ...

Classification of Coal - Engineering ToolBox

Coal is a readily combustible rock containing more than 50 percent by weight of carbonaceous material formed from compaction and indurations of variously altered plant remains similar to those in peat.. After a considerable amount of time, heat, and burial pressure, it is metamorphosed from peat to lignite.

The coal formation process involves the burial of peat, which is made of partly decayed plant materials, deep underground. The heat and pressure of burial alters the texture and increases the carbon content of the peat, which transforms it into coal, a type of sedimentary rock. This process takes millions of years. Types, or “ranks,” of coal are determined by carbon content.

Standard Classification of Coals by Rank. Note 1: Coals rich in inertinite or liptinite (exinite), or both, cannot be properly classified because, in those macerals, the properties that determine rank (calorific value, volatile matter, and agglomerating character) differ greatly from those of vitrinite in the same coal. Often, such coals can be recognized by megascopic examination.
