The use of differential thermal analytical (D.T.A.) technique has been suggested for studies in spontaneous combustion of coal, particularly in classifying coals with respect to their susceptibility to self-heating. A standard experimental procedure for carrying out D.T.A. studies on coal has been prescribed Calcined alumina in recommended as inert for D.T.A. studies it has also been suggested to carry out D.T.A. experiments taking coal (undiluted with inert) of – 72 mesh size. A heating rate of 5º C/min is advised for such studies. Typical thermograms obtained form various coals are included in this study to explain the self-heating phenomenon.
