Bagged Coal

PostBy: North Candlewood On: Sat Nov 28, 2009 10:26 am

I have burned mostly bagged coal, Reading and Blashak, now a local place has Schuylkill Processing Coal.
So I search here to find very little about Schuylkill Processing Coal.
Educate the mind!

DVC500 Thank You for that information.
How is the quality of their coal?
Are there members burning what comes from them?
How much variation in their coal is there?

I bought 3 pallets of Schuylkill coal last year and burned 2 3/4 ton of it last year, which was my first year of coal burning. I have a Keystoker 105 burning rice. It seemed to burn well enough, but i really had nothing to compare it to. So i bought 10 bags of Blashak in the spring for a comparison. I thought the Blashak burned slightly hotter, but the biggest difference was the amount of ash produced. The Schuylkill coal generated much more ash, i would say almost a full ash pan for a 50 lb bag. Kind of large chunky ash with lots of bone or shale. The Blashak was a much finer ash and produced about half as much. Here are some pix of the Schuylkill coal, ash and burn from last year.

I bought Blashak this year but haven't started to burn it yet. I'm burning Schuylkill right now and will burn about 3/4 ton before switching over to Blashak. Are you getting the Schuylkill from Hocon in Torrington?

Yes I picked some up from them and burns pretty close to the Blashak
I'm new to burning in a stoker so the trial and error has begun.
Not much squawk about this coal from others

We sold and burned it last year. We were pretty happy with it and so were a lot of our customers
