Why measure moisture in coal?
Coal has a wide moisture content range, which affects its value as fuel and determines how environmentally friendly it is to use. Without the proper handling and production processes, the quality of coal is depleted, potentially causing increased pollution.
However, taking precise measurements of moisture gives coal producers the ability to regulate moisture content, thereby creating a cleaner, higher quality coal. To do this, accurate moisture testing instruments are necessary.
Biomass Briquette OR Bio Coal is made from agricultural, wooden and forestry wastes by high compression process without adding any chemical, glue or binder. It is thus ‘binder-less’ technology product resulting in 100% natural eco-friendly, pollution-free solid fuel. Biomass briquettes are a renewable source of energy and avoid adding fossil carbon to the atmosphere. It can provide a similar amount of energy as low-grade fossil coal and 30% – 80% more energy than wood pellets
A popular biomass briquette takes a waste produce such as sawdust, groundnut shells, cotton stalk, castor seed shells etc.; compresses it and then extrudes it to make a reconstituted log that can replace firewood and coal. A very low moisture and ash content around 8% makes briquette preferable solid fuel. Briquettes give much higher boiler efficiency because of low moisture and higher density; since bio-coal has high density, it saves transport costs and space in storage.
