COMPARISON BETWEEN COMBUSTION BEHAVIOR OF SOLID FUELS AND THEIR CHARS UNDER OXY-FUEL CONDITIONS

2014-05-04
The combustion characteristics of petcoke and imported coal and their respective chars under oxy-fuel (21% O-2/79% CO2) and oxygen-enriched oxy-fuel (30% O-2/70% CO2) environments were investigated by using non-isothermal thermogravimetric method coupled with a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. Experimental results reveal that at elevated oxygen levels, profiles shift to lower temperature zone, peak and burnout temperatures decrease, weight loss rate increases significantly, and complete combustion is achieved at lower temperatures. The ignition, peak, and burnout temperatures of chars are found to be higher than those of their parents due to absence of volatile matter and higher ash content left in the char.An Arrhenius-type kinetic model was used to determine the values of the kinetic parameters of the combustion of the fuels and their chars. Values of activation energies and Arrhenius constants predicted by the model show that chars are less reactive than their parent fuels due to the absence of volatiles.

Comparison of single particle combustion behaviours of raw and torrefied biomass with Turkish lignites
Magalhaes, Duarte; Panahi, Aidin; Kazanç Özerinç, Feyza; Levendis, Yiannis A. (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-01)
This study investigated the combustion behaviour of single pulverized biomass and lignite coal particles under high temperature-high heating rate conditions. Selected fuels included three important agricultural residues in Turkey (olive residue, almond shell, and hazelnut shell), and two lignite coals from the regions of Tuncbilek and Soma in Turkey. Biomass fuels were either raw or torrefied at 275 degrees C for 30 min in nitrogen. The biomass fuels were sieved to a size cut of 212-300 mu m, and the coals ...
A study on the effects of catalysts on pyrolysis and combustion characteristics of Turkish lignite in oxy-fuel conditions
ABBASI-ATIBEH, Ehsan; Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-01)
The catalytic pyrolysis and combustion characteristics of low calorific value Turkish lignite in various ambient conditions were explored and the evolution of gases during pyrolysis tests was examined using a Thermogravimetric Analyzer coupled with a Fourier Transform Infrared spectrometer (TGA-FTIR). Potassium carbonate (K2CO3), calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)(2)) and iron (III) oxide (Fe2O3) were employed as precursors of the catalysts and compared to the Raw-form (no catalyst added) to investigate the effects ...
EVALUATION OF SECOND VIRIAL COEFFICIENTS FROM SATURATION DATA
Orbey, H.; Orbey, N. (Informa UK Limited, 1989-3)
A data reduction technique is introduced for the evaluation of second virial coefficients of gases at subcritical temperatures. The method makes use of the vapor-liquid equilibrium data, i.e., temperature, saturation pressure, liquid and vapor molar volumes and can be used to obtain second virial coefficients of a wide variety of fluids including polar, associating and quantum gases. The calculated second virial coefficients are in good agreement with their counterparts from literature, which are obtained f...
Calculation of the thermodynamic functions using a mean field model for the fluid-solid transition in nitrogen
AKAY, Özge; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Romanian Academy - Revue Roumaine De Chimie, 2020-05-01)
Temperature and pressure dependence of the thermodynamic quantities are calculated using the Landau phenomenological model for the first order fluid-solid transition in nitrogen. This calculation is performed by fitting the phase line equation as derived from the mean field model to the observed T-P phase diagram of the fluid-solid transition in N2 from the literature. Our calculations show that the order parameter and the inverse susceptibility decrease whereas the entropy, heat capacity, thermal expansion...
Characterization of lignocellulose biomass and model compounds by thermogravimetry
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
In this research, combustion characteristics of lignocellulose biomass (hazelnut shell) and three main components (cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin) were investigated using thermogravimetry (TGA-DTG) technique at different heating rates. The ignition, peak, burn-out temperatures, and the heat liberation of lignocellulose biomass and three main components were also measured. Two different model-free kinetic methods, known as Ozawa-Flynn-Wall (OFW) and Kissinger-Akahira-Sunose (KAS), were used in order to...
