We Offer Full-Spectrum Diagnostics

Within the realm of coal and coke analysis, TTI Labs extends an array of services:

  • Drop Shatter Tests
  • Proximate and Final Analysis
  • Float-Sink / Washability Analysis
  • Ash Analysis and Testing
  • Rheology of Coal
  • The Hardgrove Grindability Index (HGI)
  • Coal Calculations

To evaluate coking coals and blends before putting them through tests in commercial coke ovens, we conduct pilot-scale carbonization analyses.

Ash Analysis and Testing

This comprises a wide range of services, including fly ash resistivity measurements, coal petrography, ash fusion testing, ash viscosity evaluation, chemical ash elements analysis, and elemental analysis of ash. These perceptions are essential for evaluating how well your material works with steam power generation.

Rheology of Coal

The way coal behaves during coking processes is of utmost significance. Our industry-recognized Gieseler Plastometer and Arnu Dilatometer tests assess the plasticity and rheological characteristics of coal and aid in making informed decisions.

Coal Calculations

Accurate calculations are essential for the successful production of coke. TTI delivers precise calculations for variables like calorific value and total hydrogen in addition to several other tasks that benefit the efforts of our clients.

Proximate and Final Analysis

Using approved procedures for sampling and preparation, our professionals carefully analyze the moisture, sulfur, calorific value, volatile matter, and fixed carbon in coal and coke.

The Hardgrove Grindability Index (HGI)

The HGI measures how resistant coal is to crush. It helps anticipate throughput capacities within your operations in addition to assisting with evaluating grinding power requirements.

Float-Sink / Washability Analysis

Using this method, we classify your sample as low-density "clean coal," high-density "reject," or intermediate-density "middlings," providing information about its potential applications.

Drop Shatter Tests

Through this assessment, we determine how well your coal will hold up to breakage during handling and shipment, enabling you to make well-informed logistics decisions.
