How coke is created in a coal testing oven or pilot plant

Thanks to huge advances in metallurgy over the last three decades, 21st century steel production is transforming the globe and the built environment. Of course, a major part of the steel production process is the use of coke, which provides as much as 80% of the furnace's thermal requirements, the majority of the furnace's CO gas (which acts as a reducing reagent) and carbon for dissolution in the molten metal. As with any other manufacturing process, the quality of the raw material has a massive impact on the quality of the end product. It is therefore vital to ensure the coke is comprehensively tested.
