Pearson Coal Petrography provides microscopic evaluations of coking coals, steam coals, metallurgical cokes, and carbons, from state-of-the-art laboratories located in Canada, the United States, and Australia.
Measurement of mean maximum reflectances, measured in oil of polished surfaces of vitrinite and other macerals present in coal. Using International Standards ASTM D2798, ISO7404-5
Measurement of the maceral composition of coal, using a point count method to determine the volume percent of organic components and mineral matter in coal; as described in International Standards ASTM D2799 and ISO7404-3
Developed in-house digital whole coal reflectance measurements of coals to get reflectance profiles that are measured to 0.01% reflectance, quickly and accurately used to compare trains, cargoes, or core samples
Bireflectance image analysis aids in the determination of coke components based on optical properties. Measurement based and currently being developed into an ASTM standard.
Our blend analysis software is the most sophisticated that we are aware of. Using numerical models of component coals, blend proportions can be determined and modeled to get the best of your coking coal blends.
We may be a small family-based business, but our clients are a who's-who of coal mining and steel production. We are proud to provide our best services for each of our clients.
