Coals and cokes for blacksmiths for forging

Coal is suitable for forging in forges. Coal is screened to a size of 10-25 mm and is sold in small bags of around 30 kg.

Coke is also suitable for blacksmith use in forges. Coke is about 8-15 mm in size and is sold in small bags. Forge coke has a higher heating value, which is especially advantageous for welding. Coke also smokes less, an advantage in some situations.

Anthracite can also be used in some forges, for example in furnace welding, damascus forging or forging large pieces.

Charcoal for barbecues

Charcoal is a solid end product that is obtained when wood is dry distilled. In Western countries, charcoal is mainly used as barbecue charcoal and to some extent as a substitute for coal in kilns. Charcoal can still be further processed into activated carbon, which has a growing use in the pharmaceutical and environmental industries.

Charcoal is mainly used in Finland as barbecue charcoal, but charcoal can also be used in workshops or as energy charcoal if desired. Hardwood charcoal crushed and hardwood charcoal dust can also be used to improve the soil on golf courses and farms.

The 15-60 mm variety of hardwood charcoal or Marienburg’s 30-150 mm charcoal are best suited for barbecues. The larger the grain size, the longer the embers last in the grill. For example, French gourmet restaurants have been using this Marienburg 30-150 mm variety in food preparation for over ten years. Learn more about Marienburg charcoal at

Coke for filtration, steelmaking and combustion processes

Coke is produced by dry distillation of coal at high temperature. The coke obtained from the distillation furnace is dried with nitrogen gas and sieved. The filter coke has a volumetric weight of about 500 kg/m3. The grain size is 40-70 mm. Filter coke is sold bagged in small bags. The wight of the bag is about 22 kg. We sell coke especially for gas and liquid filtration and special combustion processes.

Coke is a fuel that is more porous, cleaner and has a higher calorific value than coal. The most important form of coke use is the production of steel, but coke can also be used for special coking processes.

Due to its porous structure, Coke can also be used as a filter. Filter coke has traditionally been used in the production of clean water and in the filtration of various gases, for example when cleaning the exhaust air of paint factories. Filter coke works well in evaporation and filtering of various liquids, e.g. waste water. There is good experience with the use of coke also in air conditioning the puu-cee container.

Disposing of the filter coke

In the coke manufacturing process, problematic waste is generated (e.g. asphalt, tars and oily sewage sludge), but the coke used in the filters itself is fuel. If filter coke is used for example in paint filters, it must be ensured that the paint dust does not contain toxins. If the paint dust is non-toxic, the coke used in the paint filters can be disposed of as energy waste.

Coal for power plants

We deliver screened and unscreened coal products to power plants. If necessary, we handle the screening and we are often able to make deliveries all year round.

We deliver coal to power plants that burn peat and wood chips as auxiliary fuel. Even a small addition of coal or anthracite can improve the fire in such a way that even moist peat, coal, sawdust or bark can be burned successfully. In this way, even the wetter fuel available can be used when it makes sense for reasons of price or availability.
