It was late winter and we had to hammer the bags out of the ice. I have never found a rock using bagged Blaschak. I was wondering if their loose coal might not get the same level of quality control.

All coal is kept wet to control dust and the potential for dust explosions. When I used to get pea coal it would dry out in my outside coal bin. Now that I live in upstate NY (as opposed to Berks, PA) I have to get it bagged and it never seems to dry out in the "Santa Claus" bags from Blaschak. At least the Kinney coal comes in a fiber bag which drys out over time.

The coal is wet to keep the dust down Anthracite dust is not explosive. And by the way there coal is put into 4 huge
drying hoppers before it goes into the bagging plant. They use a big Losch coal fired Hot air furnace to dry the coal . The coal is Rotated from one hopper to the next until dry before it goes inside to the automatic bagger and Pallet loader .

a question and a comment:

so what is the Blaschak bulk loose price at the plant?

and

the bagged coal (it is my understanding) is purposely wetted down to keep dust at a minimum for homeowners...that is what i was told by a retailer

At there coal breaker loose bulk coal is 180 a ton . As Far as the bagged coal you must buy it threw a dealer .
And no it is not supposed to be wet when it is bagged. But with the demand so high if they don't leave it dry it will be damp or wet before it is bagged. They also wrap several pieces of Plastic sheets over the pallet of coal before they shrink wrap the pallet to keep the water out when it rains the bags have air holes in them for when they machine fills them . When it arrives at the dealer and they cut the shrink wrap off and then Pull the Plastic sheet off to pull bags off.There supposed to put the sheets back on to keep the rain water out. If they do not do that the water will go threw the holes in the bags then you will have wet coal .

I paid $229/ton for nut size loose coal plus $60 delivery fee on 4 tons. Dealer from Easton PA delivered to NJ. However, my neighbor burns coal also and questions if I really received anthracite Blaschak, or possibly bituminous

Richard, you may want to start a new thread. I won't be offended. LOL

Good Morning, I have been burning bagged Reading nut coal. I don't know anything about it except that it's Reading and the only brand the nearest dealer to me has. I like it – a lot. We tried Blaschak last year and the bags were so wet that it was a mess. One thing I noticed when I first opened a bag this season is that about 50% of the Reading nut is larger than the Blaschak nut was, giving me, according to pictures posted on the forum, range coal. It actually burns better in my Harman II producing equal heat with a much slower burn rate. My ash production is about 14% with close to 100% burn. My question is does anyone in the Penn Coal region know the cost of a ton of bagged (40#) Reading nut coal. I know prices will change somewhat but I'd like an idea of cost so I can be putting money aside. I’m going to make one trip to the coal region this summer and get 3.5 tons in one swoop. Thanks, Lisa

Here in Northern Maine a ton of bagged Blaschak sells for $320.00/ton picked up. Love the quality and convienence of the bag. Most customers do not want to go bulk for residential. Getting alot of Kimmal customers that are not happy with the quality. Blaschack nut is the best I've seen as far as quality and consitant size.

I just paid $390 for the pallet (60 bags)..Also the coal seems smaller in size then the other tons I got last fall.
I see Blazcheck moved their mining operations to another place. I wonder if this is the reason. The bag says Nut as before but I was thinking Pea size mix but I never bought Pea so I'm not sure.

I buy my coal in the early summer a ton at a time (palletized loaded in my truck) local here in southern NH for $300/ton. It's Blaschak 40 lb bagged pea. I would be open to getting it delivered in bulk but I don't have a system set up yet for that and I find it convenient to load the hopper a bag at a time which I store in my garage. Anyone else interested in sharing bulk pea delivered in the southern NH area next summer?
