A major aim of blending in a coking plant is to control the amounts of the brights in the coal charge. The brights develop coking properties during the process of coal metamorphosis and during the coking act as plasticizer and binder for the other constituents. Artificial mixtures of bright and dull coals of Kargali and Bermo seams of the East Bokaro coalfield and Argada seam of South Karanpura coalfield were prepared in the laboratory, and their caking index was determined to find out the optimum amount of brights for a coking charge. It is found that not less than 50 per cent brights are necessary in a mixture to give a caking index of 22, which is suitable for metallurgical coke manufacture.
