The more important qualities of coal and coke for metallurgical uses are discussed in this paper. Heats of wetting of coals in methanol or their capacity moisture are found to be a valuable guide for their coking characteristics. The commonly employed plastometric and dilatometric tests, do not by themselves provide any direct or infallible index for the coke forming property of a coal. But the characteristic temperatures of softening, solidification etc. are observed to be closely related to the coking properties of coals. Tests done on various Indian coals using the Koppers and nedelmann apparatus followed by electric oven tests reveal that Indian coking coals do not develop harmful swelling pressures during carbonization.
