Re: Coke questions

Tim O'Connor

Petroleum coke is a dark, inky black and is "fine" material. I'll
go with Eric on coal coke until someone comes up with a color photo :-)

If you want to see coke go to Google news and look at yesterday's
derailment in Houston -- hopper cars of coke all over the highway!

If one wanted to model coke, say to fill the Walthers coke containers, what
material would one use, and what color would it be? Thanks!

Coke is usually a light grey, silvery color, at least from the old
beehive or the more modern non-recovery systems (you didn't specify era). I
am less sure about coke from a byproduct plant.
