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!

Tell me what they mean by "blending coal". What is the difference between the various coals that go into the blend? How is this different from what other sellers do? If they mix 100 tons each of three or four different varieties together, how do they get it mixed at the level of the individual bag?

Just to play devil's advocate, does "blending" mean, "We take some good coal and mix it with some not-so-good coal, and get a consistently medium-quality product that we sell to you"?



That is exactly what blending means, you take some top quality vein coal and mix it with some lower quality bank coal. Years ago their was a thing called premium coal, this was the best of the best, lowest ash coal 4% to 10% max ash content. Well now "most" breakers blend their premium coal with their high ash coal to get an ash content of about 10-15%

Just as an FYI, the most recent testing of the blended nut coal had an ash content slightly above 8%.

Back when, someone, maybe the Mayor, posted a pix chart on coal sizing--this nut is right on the money & always has been in the 4 years I've been dealing with my supplier. No rocks or other contraband to speak of, nice & shiney like a babies lil hiney, plus low ash-- it don't get no better :D
