The variation in the proximate analysis petrographic composition, plastic and swelling properties different crushed and screened fractions on the preparation of two Indian coals was studied. Marked difference has been observed in the plastic and swelling properties of the different fractions. The finer fractions have lower ash and show higher values for maximum fluidity and higher percentage of expansion. With a decrease in the size, there is a progressive decrease in the brights and increase in the durains, the fusain remaining about the same. Finer fractions are found more easily grindable too.
