classification of coals by rank

coal classification Types Facts Britannica

The most common classification is based on rank, referring to the degree of coalification that has occurred. The rank of a coal is determined primarily by the depth of burial and temperature to which the coal was subjected over time. With increasing temperature, peat is converted to lignite, a very soft, low-rank coal.

Coal Rank - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Coal rank is a measure of coal maturity and is the most fundamental parameter that relates both to the coalification history and the utilisation potential of a coal. Figure 14.3 shows the change in coal chemical and physical properties with rank from bituminous to anthracite coals (Teichmuller and Teichmuller, 1975).As the rank increases, the vitrinite reflectance, carbon content, and C/H ...

What are the types of coal? - USGS.gov

There are four major types (or “ranks”) of coal. Rank refers to steps in a slow, natural process called “coalification,” during which buried plant matter changes into an ever denser, drier, more carbon rich, and harder material. The four ranks are: Anthracite: The highest rank of coal. It is a hard, brittle, and black lustrous coal ...

What are the different types of coal? American ...

The coal formation process involves the burial of peat, which is made of partly decayed plant materials, deep underground. The heat and pressure of burial alters the texture and increases the carbon content of the peat, which transforms it into coal, a type of sedimentary rock. This process takes millions of years. Types, or “ranks,” of coal are determined by carbon content.

ASTM D388-18 - Standard Classification of Coals by Rank

Note 1: Coals rich in inertinite or liptinite (exinite), or both, cannot be properly classified because, in those macerals, the properties that determine rank (calorific value, volatile matter, and agglomerating character) differ greatly from those of vitrinite in the same coal. Often such coals can be recognized by megascopic examination. In North America, these coals are mostly nonbanded ...

The "rank" of a coal is a measure of how much change has occurred. Sometimes the term "organic metamorphism" is used for this change. Based upon composition and properties, coals are assigned to a rank progression that corresponds to their level of organic metamorphism. The basic rank progression is summarized in the table here.

Coal Rank Classification SpringerLink

The rank of a coal is characteristic of the stage reached by it in course of coalification. The development from peat through the stages of lignite, subbituminous, and bituminous coals to anthracite and meta-anthracite is termed coalification. Coalification or coal metamorphism is a function of heat and pressure acting over a period of time.
