Hi, I was wondering if someone could please tell me if this is good quality bituminous coal?

» The Kelly Ranch mine produces a Low-Sulphur Compliance coal of .6% sulphur, 12,000 BTU, 10% Ash and 10% Moisture.

» The Bradshaw Mine produces a coal of 4.2% Sulphur, 12,500 BTU, 10% Ash and 9% Moisture.

» Garland Mine produces a Washed Coal of 3.8% Sulphur, 11,800 BTU, 12% Ash and 9% Moisture.

» Phoenix Coal can also offer a "Stokered" Coal product from our Low-Sulphur coal. This product typical analysis is 12,800 BTU, 0.5% Sulphur, 7% Ash and 7% Moisture.

» Phoenix Coal can offer coal in 50lbs Bags for home and blacksmithing needs.


Thanks

from only the information mentioned, the phoenix coal followed by the bradshaw are the best coals. why? lowest ash, highest btu/lb. sulfur is not an issue for small scale heating use, although sometimes it can be indicative of a low ash fusion temp. what you want is low coke button, high ash fusion temp, low ash, high btu coals.
