What is Coke fuel

Kian Petroleum Company is an international specialized petrochemical company producing various petroleum products such as diesel , Coke Fuel , etc

( Coke ( fuel

Coke is a grey, hard, and porous fuel with a high carbon content and few impurities, made by heating coal or oil in the absence of air—a destructive distillation process. It is an important industrial product , used mainly in iron ore smelting, but also as a fuel in stoves and forges when air pollution is a concern

The unqualified term “coke” usually refers to the product derived from low-ash and low-sulphur bituminous coal by a process called coking. A similar product called petroleum coke, or pet coke , is obtained from crude oil in oil refineries. Coke may also be formed naturally by geologic processes

Occupational safety

People can be exposed to coke oven emissions in the workplace by inhalation , skin contact , or eye contact. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set the legal limit for coke oven emissions exposure in the workplace as 0.150 mg/m۳ benzene-soluble fraction over an eight-hour workday. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health ( NIOSH ) has set a Recommended exposure limit ( REL ) of 0.2 mg/m۳ benzene-soluble fraction over an eight-hour workday


Coke is used as a fuel and as a reducing agent in smelting iron ore in a blast furnace. The carbon monoxide produced by its combustion reduces iron oxide (hematite) in the production of the iron product

Coke is commonly used as fuel for blacksmithing

Coke was used in Australia in the 1960s and early 1970s for house heating , and was incentivized for home use in the UK ( so as to displace coal ) after the 1956 Clean Air Act , which was passed in response to the Great Smog of London in 1952

Since smoke-producing constituents are driven off during the coking of coa l, coke forms a desirable fuel for stoves and furnaces in which conditions are not suitable for the complete burning of bituminous coal it self. Coke may be combusted producing little or no smoke, while bituminous coal would produce much smoke. Coke was widely used as a smokeless fuel substitute for coal in domestic heating following the creation of smokeless zones in the United Kingdom
