What is the cubic measurement of one ton of anthracite coal?
fifoenergy.com says 35.314 cubic feet per 1 ton of bituminous coal. My coal supplier tells me to figure about 36 cubic feet for my antrhacite pea coal wikianswers says about 40 cubic feet per ton of antrhacite.

If it is good coal there should not be any sand
Because it is a rock, not a mineral, the Mohs value will vary significantly from sample to sample. An average range would be between 3.0 and 3.8.
Anthracite is mostly found in east-central and northeast Pennsylvania in highly folded rocks. Most veins are difficult to mine as they are at high angles and not in flat… deposits. This coal was formed during the carboniferous (Pennsylvainian) era ~ 300 MYA. Small deposits are also found in Arkansas as well as China...but the vast majority is in Northumberland, Schuylkill, Carbon, Lackawanna and Luzerne Counties of Pennsylvania
30,000,000 BTUs Per Ton. Will vary depending on the grade of coal.
Anthracite coal is used for steel making.
Bituminous coal is relatively soft and dull, as opposed to anthracite which is hard and shiny. Anthracite is also much more dense and pure. Because of its purity (can be up to… 98% carbon), Anthracite burns a very hot, smokeless flame.
Anthracite is a better type of coal than bituminous, anthracite is the best type of coal because it is the purest type of coal as it has the highest amount of carbon content p…resent in it. It is made up of 90-95% of carbon content, so, it has a higher calorific value and burns without a smoke. Anthracite is relatively a harder, an older and a purer type of coal as compared to bituminous. Anthracite also burns without a smoke, so it is cleaner and is a more eco-friendly fuel. The only advantage bituminous has over anthracite is that it is present in more quantity than anthracite which is unfortunate because 70-75% of all coals are bituminous and anthracite covers only 5% of all types of coals.
Anthracite coal is harder than Lignite.
40 -50 cubic ft. relative to the cut of coal, rice, lump etc.
