Physical and chemical properties of selected Turkish lignites and their pyrolysis and gasification rates determined by thermogravimetric analysis

Pyrolysis and CO(2)-gasification behavior of lignites representing four different deposits in Turkey were investigated by Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) in the temperature range from 750 degrees C to 1000 degrees C. The rates of pyrolysis and CO(2)-gasification were evaluated from the corresponding TGA profiles. As expected, maximum pyrolysis rates for each coal were shown to be constant with respect to the final carbonization temperature. Lignites used in this study are from the tertiary period, chosen from major coal deposits in Turkey and their carbon contents are in the range of 60-70% (daf) based on ultimate analysis. They have shown different gasification reactivities under similar conditions and the reactivity sequence was found to be temperature dependent.


Magnetic ordering in two ferromagnetic sublattices of two mixed-valence iron(II)-iron(III) metal formate frameworks
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2019-11-01)
Temperature dependence of magnetization (M) is calculated for two mixed-valence iron(II) - iron(III) metal formate frameworks (MOFs) with the two ferromagnetic sublattices below T-comp (compensation temperature) at 100 Oe by the molecular field theory. Temperature dependence of magnetization (M-T) is analyzed between T(comp )and T-ord = 39K (ordering temperature) by the power-law formula using the literature data for those compounds. Power-law analysis is also carried out for the field dependence of magneti...
Reactivity of CO2 during thermal cracking of heavy paraffins under supercritical conditions
Karakaş, Gürkan; Doğu, Timur (1997-11-01)
Thermal cracking of n-hexadecane was investigated in a temperature range of 450-600 degrees C in the presence of CO2. Effects of pressure and temperature on product distribution were experimentally determined under both subcritical and supercritical conditions. At 1.2 MPa and with a CO2 to n-C-16 mole ratio of 25, C-6-C-14 olefins, C-10-C-17 paraffins, and C-5-C-10 fatty acids were identified in the liquid product. Experiments conducted at 4.5 MPa (supercritical) yielded higher selectivities for fatty acids...
Pyrolysis, combustion and gasification studies of different sized coal particles using TGA-MS
Jayaraman, Kandasamy; Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Gokalp, Iskender (2017-10-01)
In this research, thermogravimetric and mass-spectrometric (TG-MS) analysis and kinetics of different sized (60 mu m,800 mu m, and 3 mm) Saray (Turkish origin) coal is examined at various combustion temperature ranges. Experiments are performed at the heating rate of 40 degrees C/min in an argon atmosphere up to combustion/gasification temperatures (850-1150 degrees C), which, is close to the conditions of fluidized bed systems for high ash coal applications. The combustion tests are performed at isothermal...
Thermally stimulated currents in layered semiconductor Tl4In3GaS8
Hasanlı, Nızamı; Mogaddam, N. A. P. (IOP Publishing, 2006-09-01)
We have carried out thermally stimulated current measurements on as-grown Tl4In3GaS8 layered single crystals in the temperature range 10-90 K with different heating rates of 0.10-0.30 K s(-1). The data were analysed by curve fitting, heating rates and isothermal decay methods. The results were in good agreement with each other. Experimental evidence was found for one trapping centre in Tl4In3GaS8 crystal with an activation energy of 12 meV. The capture cross section and concentration of the traps were found...
Numerical Evaluation of Fractional Vertical Soil Water Flow Equations
Ercan, Ali; Kavvas, M. Levent (2021-02-01)
Significant deviations from standard Boltzmann scaling, which corresponds to normal or Fickian diffusion, have been observed in the literature for water movement in porous media. However, as demonstrated by various researchers, the widely used conventional Richards equation cannot mimic anomalous diffusion and ignores the features of natural soils which are heterogeneous. Within this framework, governing equations of transient water flow in porous media in fractional time and multi-dimensional fractional so...
