Solids formed during the coking of bituminous coal to produce crude bituminous coal high temperature tar. Composed primarily of coke and coal particles, highly aromatized compounds and mineral substances.
Carc. 1B
The condensation product obtained by cooling, to approximately ambient temperature, the gas evolved in the high temperature (greater than 700°C (1292°F)) destructive distillation of coal. Composed primarily of a complex mixture of condensed ring aromatic hydrocarbons with a high solid content of coal- and coke-type materials.
Carc. 1B
Coke- and ash-containing solid residues that separate on distillation and thermal treatment of bituminous coal high temperature tar in distillation installations and storage vessels. Consists predominantly of carbon and contains a small quantity of hetero compounds as well as ash components.
Carc. 1B
A tar obtained from low temperature carbonization and low temperature gasification of brown coal. Composed primarily of aliphatic, naphthenic and cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, heteroaromatic hydrocarbons and cyclic phenols.
Carc. 1A
The distillate from high temperature coal tar having an approximate distillation range of 130°C to 250°C (266°F to 410°F). Composed primarily of naphthalene, alkylnaphthalenes, phenolic compounds, and aromatic nitrogen bases.
Carc. 1B; Muta. 1B
A distillate from low-temperature coal tar. Composed primarily of hydrocarbons, phenolic compounds and aromatic nitrogen bases boiling in the range of approximately 160°C to 340°C (320°F to 644°F).
Carc. 1B; Muta. 1B
The distillate from lignite tar boiling in the range of approximately 80°C to 250°C (176°F to 482°F). Composed primarily of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons and monobasic phenols.
Carc. 1B; Muta. 1B
An oil distilled from brown-coal tar. Composed primarily of aliphatic, naphthenic and one- to three-ring aromatic hydrocarbons, their alkyl derivatives, heteroaromatics and one- and two-ring phenols boiling in the range of approximately 150°C to 360°C (302°F to 680°F).
