Char emissivity of burning particles is an important factor for heat transfer calculations in pulverized fuel boilers. As the chemical composition is known to influence the emissivity in general, a coal sample has been prepared by a leaching method to reduce the mineral content. A flat flame burner was used for the combustion of the particles in oxyfuel atmosphere, providing boundary conditions comparable to pulverized coal applications. The burnout-dependent emissivity of the sample was measured in a defined spectral range and compared with data for an unleached sample of the same coal, indicating that the mineral content has minor effect for the investigated conversion levels, although clear changes in the emissivity show that conversion in general is not negligible. © 2018 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
