Since coal analyses may be reported on different bases with regard to moisture and ash content, sometimes it becomes a real challenge to quickly match different specifications and take a decision within limited time frame which is essential in trading business.
CoalBoss allows multidirectional conversion of the following bases:
1. As Received Basis (ARB) - The basis for analytical data calculated to the moisture condition of the sample as it arrived at the laboratory and before any processing or conditioning.
2. As Determined Basis (ADB) - The basis refers to the moisture condition of the sample during analyses in the laboratory.
3. Dry Basis (DB) - The basis for analytical data calculated to a theoretical basis of no moisture associated with the sample.
4. Dry Ash-free Basis (DAF) - The basis for data calculated to a theoretical basis of no moisture or ash associated with the sample.
Accurate and precise calculations are vital to the success of your coal operation. It is very common for specific producers to offer met coke on dry weight basis and at the dry weight price that excludes moisture. It is of high importance to realize that the actual weight of the cargo that will be physically received in port is higher than the dry weight. At the same time the effective price will be lower.
CoalBoss saves your time bringing optimization to work with specifications, weight and price adjustments which directly influences the trading. With the app you will immediately get price and weight recalculated to both bases. Moreover, by adjusting moisture you will see how weight and price change which is essential for calculating purchase and sales prices.
