Spectrographic analysis of coal and coal ash; 1950; Article; Journal; Analytical Chemistry; Hunter, R. G.; Headlee, A. J. W.

Summary

Coal can be analyzed on the spectrograph for per cent ash and composition of ash in a matter of a few minutes, using the total energy method. The composition of the ash so determined can be used to calculate ash softening temperatures. This analysis can be made in sufficiently short a time to control tipple and washing operations for preparation of coal to meet specifications. This spectrographic method can be readily adapted to the analysis of rocks, minerals, and inorganic chemicals of all kinds.
