Title: METHOD OF CHARGING A COKE OVEN
Abstract:
A method of charging a coke oven with coal comprises the steps of charging coal in a coke oven chamber (65), whereby a heap of coal (70) forms in the chamber; and leveling the heap of coal. The leveling step comprises: introducing a blasting end (20) of a blasting pipe (16) into the heap of coal (72), the blasting pipe being in communication with a pressurized gas storage vessel (14) configured to release gas blasts; releasing at least one gas blast through the blasting end in the heap of coal (72) in order to cause a leveling thereof; removing the blasting pipe from the chamber. The device (10) for leveling a heap of coal comprises a storage vessel (14) with pressurized gas configured to release gas blasts, a blasting pipe (16) having at least one opening (22j ) at the blasting end of said blasting pipe through which a blast of compressed gas can be released into a heap of coal for leveling the latter and a manipulator device (27) configured for moving said blasting pipe, through said roof, between a rest position and a working position.
