Product description

Anthracite Coal is more normally known as “hard coal”. Anthracite coal is a highly-carbonated fossil fuel that will generate the highest heat of all the fossil fuels available, and the low sulfur content in Anthracite makes it an extremely clean-burning fuel. New technology and engineering design changes to burners have made it even easier to use. Anthracite coal produces virtually no smoke or particulate emissions which is a major problem with cord wood and pellet burning stoves. In addition, it leaves no residual creosote build-up in your chimney, a potential fire hazard common in cord wood & pellet burning stoves.

Anthracite coal burns with little smoke or flame.. With an 86 to 98 percent fixed carbon content, anthracite coal is one of the strongest and shiniest coals. Anthracite coal is also known as blue coal, crow coal, Kilkenny coal, blind coal, and black diamond coal. Stewed and brewed with heat over time. Anthracite coal has a heating value of approximately 13,400 to 15,600 BTU per pound, enough to properly steam any giftee.

Anthracite also is the most brittle among coal types. When burned, it produces a very hot, blue flame. A shiny black rock, anthracite is used primarily for heating residential and commercial buildings in the northeastern region of Pennsylvania, where much of it is mined. The Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum in Scranton underscores the coal's significant economic impact on the region.

The principal use of anthracite today is for a domestic fuel in either hand-fired stoves or automatic stoker furnaces. It delivers high energy per its weight and burns cleanly with little soot, making it ideal for this purpose. Its high value makes it prohibitively expensive for power plant use. Other uses include the fine particles used as filter media, and as an ingredient in charcoal briquettes. Anthracite is an authorised fuel[17] in terms of the United Kingdom's Clean Air Act of 1993, meaning that it can be used within a designated Smoke Control Area such as the central London boroughs.
