3 Eschka Method
3.1 Principle
The coal sample was mixed with the Eschka reagent and burned. The sulfur in the coal
was converted into sulfate; and then the sulfate ion generated the barium sulfate
precipitate. The total sulfur content in the coal shall be calculated based on the mass
of the barium sulfate.
3.2 Reagents and Materials
3.2.1 Eschka reagent (hereinafter referred to as Drinox): evenly mix the 2 pieces of the
mass of chemically pure light magnesium oxide (GB/T 9857) and 1 piece of mass of
chemically pure anhydrous sodium carbonate (GB/T 639); and grind them to the
substance with the particle size of less than 0.2mm; then store in a sealed container.
4.3.2 Electrolytic cell and electromagnetic stirrer
The electrolytic cell has a height of (120~180) mm, a capacity of no less than 400mL;
equipped with platinum electrolytic electrode pair with an area of about 150mm2, and
platinum indicator electrode pair with an area of about 15mm2. The response time of
the indicator electrode shall be less than 1s; the speed of the electromagnetic stirrer is
about 500r/min, which can be adjusted continuously.
4.3.3 Coulomb integrator
The integral linear error in the range of electrolytic current (0~350) mA shall be less
than 0.1%; equipped with (4~6) digital display or printer.
4.3.4 Sample-delivery program controller
It can move forward and backward flexibly according to the prescribed programs.
4.3.5 Air supply and purification device
It consists of the electromagnetic pump and purification tube. The air supply volume is
about 1500mL/min; and the air extraction volume is about 1000mL/min. The
purification tube contains sodium hydroxide and color-changing silica gel.
4.4 Test procedures
4.4.1 Test preparation Raise the temperature of tubular high temperature furnace to 1150°C; use
another set of platinum rhodium-platinum thermocouple pyrometer to determine the
position ad length of high temperature zone, and the position at 500°C. Adjust the sample-delivery program controller, so that the pre-decomposition
and pyrolysis of the coal samples are at the positions of 500°C and 1150°C,
respectively. Fill the outlet of the combustion tube with cleaned and dried glass fiber cotton.
Fill the aluminum silicate cotton with a thickness of about 3 mm at a distance of (80 ~
100) mm from the outlet end. Assemble the following devices together, such as program controller, tubular
high temperature furnace, Coulomb integrator, electrolytic cell, electromagnetic stirrer,
and air supply and purification device. The connection among the combustion tube,
piston and the electrolytic cell shall be close to each other, and sealed with a silicone
rubber tube. Start the air extraction and air supply pumps; adjust the air extraction flow to
1000mL/min. Then close the piston between the electrolytic cell and combustion tube. Start the air supply pump and the air extraction pump; and adjust the air
extraction flow to 1000mL/min. Under air extraction condition, add the electrolyte to
the electrolytic cell and start the electromagnetic stirrer. Put a small amount of non-measured coal sample into the porcelain boat;
perform the endpoint potential adjustment test as described in If the display
value of the Coulomb integrator is 0 after the test, the measurement shall be repeated
until the display value is no longer to be 0. Take (0.05±0.005) g (accurate to 0.0002g) of air-dry coal sample in a porcelain
boat with a particle size of less than 0.2mm; and cover the coal sample with a thin layer
of tungsten trioxide. Place the porcelain boat on the quartz tray for sample delivery,
start the sample-delivery program controller, and the coal sample shall be
automatically sent into the furnace, and the coulometric titration shall begin
immediately. After the test, the Coulomb integrator displays the milligrams or mass
fraction of sulfur, or printed by a printer.
4.4.4 Calibration inspection
During the measurement of the instrument, coal reference materials or other control
samples should be used regularly (after every 10 ~ 15 measurements are
recommended) to verify the stability and validity of the sulfur analyzer. If the
measurement value of the coal reference material or other control samples exceed the
uncertainty range (control limit) of the standard value; the instrument shall be re-
calibrated according to the above procedures; and re-measure the samples since the
previous inspection.
4.5 Result calculation
If the Coulomb integrator finally displays the milligrams of sulfur, the total sulfur mass
fraction shall be calculated as per Formula (2):
St,ad – total sulfur mass fraction in the coal samples for general analysis, in %;
m1 – display value of Coulomb integrator, in mg;
m – mass of coal sample, in mg.
4.6 Precision of method
The repeatability and reproducibility for the determination of total sulfur by Coulometric
titration method can refer to the provisions of Table 2.

5.4.1 Test preparation Insert the combustion tube into the high-temperature furnace so that the end
of the small-diameter tube extends out of the furnace mouth 100mm, and connect a
section of silicone rubber tube with a length of about 30mm. The high temperature furnace is heated and stabilized at (1200±10) °C, and
the position and length of the high temperature constant temperature zone and 500 °C
temperature zone in the combustion tube are measured. Connect the drying tower, oxygen flowmeter, combustion tube and absorption
bottle of high temperature furnace; and check the air tightness of the devices.

tightness again. Take an air-dried coal sample (0.20±0.01) g (accurate to 0.0002 g) with the
particle size of less than 0.2 mm in the combustion boat and cover a thin layer of
tungsten trioxide. Put the combustion boat containing coal samples on the inlet end of the
combustion tube; then plug it with a T-shaped tube with a rubber stopper; and then
introduce oxygen at a flow rate of 350 mL/min. Use a nichrome wire push rod to push
the combustion boat to the 500°C temperature zone and keep it for 5 minutes; then
push the boat to the high temperature zone, and immediately withdraw the push rod to
burn the coal sample in the zone for 10 minutes. Stop supplying oxygen; remove the absorption bottle near the combustion tube;
and then remove the other absorption bottle. Take off the T-shaped tube with rubber stopper; and take out the combustion
boat by the nichrome wire hook. Remove the stopper of the absorption bottle and clean the gas filter for (2 ~ 3)
times by distilled water. When cleaning, press the rubber suction bulb to discharge the
