The authors were deputed for training in low temperature carbonization of coal at the Fuel Research Station, U.K. This paper describes the investigations carried out by them. Tests were carried out on different British coals of varying swelling properties in the continuous vertical narrow-brick retorts (at F.R.S.) which revealed that low temperature cokes of suitable combustibility could be made at high flue temperature and increasing the coal throughput. Decrease in flue temperature affects the coal throughput adversely. The retorts worked efficiently using non-coking coal even with a throughput of 10 tons/retort/day, while with coking coal it could not be raised above 5-6 tons/retort/day. The thermal requirements per ton of coal carbonized decreased as the throughput was increased.
