metallurgical coke

Metallurgical coke is produced by carbonization of coals or coal blends at temperatures up to 1400 K to produce a macroporous carbon material of high strength and relatively large lump size.
Note:
Metallurgical cokes must have a high strength to support heavy loads in the blast furnace without disintegration. Metallurgical coke is also used as filler coke for polygranular carbon products.
