Can two coal sizes be mixed together at the breaker?

Is it possible and if so which breakers will do it? Would there be an additional charge involved?

#1 Buckwheat and Rice mixed is what I am interested in.

McGiever, just for the heck of it, contact Jeddo Coal Co.

It doesn't cost anything to ask.

Some people like to mix it in Keystokers. Where I get my coal they will load rice and buckwheat alternately in the truck and then until it gets dumped in your bin and then dumped into the hopper it is usually adequately mixed. I do not know if anyone does any bulk mixing of the two sizes it would most likely be a loading of the two sizes in the same truck. This would not be a precise mix but maybe a good enough mix?

I seem to remember Richard posting a response on this subject a few years back. Like gaw said, If I remember correctly, Richard indicated that if you load the truck or trailer with alternating types of coal, they will mix to together pretty well during the delivery. I'm sure he will be along and can give you a better answer. Take care, Lisa

When I was hauling slag years ago we had one contractor that would always want a mix. The slag yard was a big outfit & would use a loader on each side & both would dump in real slow. Couldn`t get a better mix than that.
