20 Million BTU ****************** The heat content of coal varies. Bituminous coal typically has a gross heating value of 30,600,000 BTU per ton. The net heating value is 26,000,000 BTU per ton, assuming 85% efficiency. If you need more precise information, go to the U.S. Department of Energy website at and search on the heat content of coal. -ecn

How many BTU per Hour equals 1 Ton of Air Conditioning?

Air conditioners are rated in three ways, by B.T.U.'s, tons of refrigeration, or by horsepower. One ton of refrigeration removes the amount of heat needed to melt one ton of ice in 24 hours. One ton of refrigeration can remove 12,000 B.T.U.'s of heat in one hour. The B.T.U. is the amount of heat nee (MORE)

How many btus per gallon of kerosene?

1 gallon for #1 Kerosene produces 135,000 BTUs. #1 Kerosene is closely related to #1 Diesel and JP8 (Jet Fuel) - they differ chiefly in additives. Likewise, #2 Kerosene, Diesel #2, and Furnace Oil are similar to one another. #2 oils have higher sulfur content, which leads to more eye and lung (MORE)

BTUS to tons?

12,000 BTU/h is referred to as a ton in most North American air conditioning applications. A BTU, short for British Thermal Unit, is a basic measure of thermal (heat) energy. One BTU is the amount of energy needed to heat one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit, measured at its heaviest point. In o (MORE)

How many kilowatthours are produced by 1 ton bituminous coal?

Coal has an energy value of 24 Megajoules/kg, which is the same as 6.67 kwh/kg. However a coal fired power plant will only have an efficiency of about 30 per cent so this reduces to 2.0 kwh/kg. Now when you say 1 ton, do you mean 2240 lb, 2000 lb, or 1000 kg (metric ton) ? I will assume 1000kg as (MORE)

What is the heat content of coal in mmbtu per ton?

How many BTU per ton of wood pellets?

Within reason all woods have a potential BTU value of 8000 BTU's per pound. Oak, Ash, Balsa and Pine all have the same potential. I am sure there are some exotic woods that might violate this rule but for the sake of this question 8000 BTU/Pd will do nicely. The term potential is a theoretical maxim (MORE)

How many BTUs per gallon of fuel oil?

1 gal of #2 fuel oil (or diesel for that matter) has an equivalent of 115,000 BTUS. I say equivalent because it has a little more than that raw (like 136k or so) but the furnace that burns it is only around 85% efficient, therefore you only get 115K BTUS.
