In this paper, the ignition temperatures (Ti) of seven kinds of coals were measured by using thermlgravimetric analyzer (TGA). A TG-DTG method was suggested to determine the ignition temperature. This method is simple, convenient, standardized and with high repeatability. The relations between Ti and volatile content and active energy are analyzed. Compared with the ignition temperatures measured in a bench scale fluidized bed and boiler test, Tis derived from TG-DTG method have nearly same tendency with changing volatile content, but have 100°C deviation below those measured in fluidized bed. The results strongly indicate that TG-DTG method can substitute the fluidized bed method and boiler test for measuring ignition temperature of a coal with an off-set adjustment.
