Solid fuel quality testing for coal, biomass, petcoke, and wood pellet fuels.

Solid fuel testing from Intertek helps determine the chemical make-up, commercial quality, and regulatory compliance for coal, metallurgical coke, petroleum coke, biomass including wood pellets, and other solid carbon based fuels. Tests are performed to accepted industry standards, including ASTM, ISO, and others.

Solid fuel analysis capabilities include:

  • Proximate analysis for: ash, fixed carbon, moisture, and volatile matter 
  • Ultimate analysis (CHNOS) for carbon; hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, sulfur 
  • Total carbon content
  • Heating Value testing (BTU), British Thermal Units 
  • Total Halogens analysis (Br, Cl, F)
  • Trace elemental analysis (trace metals analysis)
  • Mineral Analysis of Ash
  • Ash Fusion Temperature properties
  • Size Distribution
  • Bulk Density
  • additional tests
