All of the coal comes covered and wrapped. (to us anyway).
Like Fred says, there is a lot of sweating, but it comes from being wrapped,
and the moisture not having anyplace to go..
The outside of the bags were wet, the inside, not bad at all.
We also delivered 4 tons to a guy that has a bin, so we unbagged it,
and it was damp.. but no significant water..
(this was nut BTW... we have noticed the rice IS WET!, but that is from the process
to keep the dust down)
As for the weight, I'd weigh a few bags to get an average.
also, did you use a bathroom scale?
N it is not from the process to keep the dust down, rice coa holds more moisture because of the size of the coal, It has much more water attached to it coming out of the breaker. Simple test for you take a bucket of 1B stone and a bucket of topsoil, and wet them down and let soak for a couple of hours. dump them and see which one dries faster. Its the same thing with coal! and Great question about the type of scale if people are nt usng caibrated scales they can forget their results!
