In this research, the combustion behavior of six Turkish crude oils (light and medium type) was investigated by thermogravimetry/derivative thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) methods under atmospheric air in the absence of rock matrix. Two main reaction intervals were observed on all thermograms known as low temperature oxidation (LTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO) regions. The resulting curves showed that the mass loss under combustion is accompanied by exothermic peaks due to the oxidative degradation of crude oil components. Heavier oils with greater asphaltene content were exposed to more heat release during oxidation reactions. By the increment of heating rate, not a remarkable variation was observed in apparent activation energies whereas the heat emission of crude oils decreased. Based on the model free and model fitting kinetic approaches, heavier oils had higher apparent activation energy and Arrhenius constant values for all oxidation regions.

The objective of this research was to investigate thermal behavior and kinetics of different origin crude oils in limestone matrix by differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) at low heating rates. In DSC experiments, three distinct reaction regions were identified in all of the crude oil + limestone mixtures known as low temperature oxidation (LTO), fuel deposition (FD) and high temperature oxidation (HTO) respectively. Kinetic analysis of the crude oil samples was determined by different models known as AST...

Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2015-11-01)
In this study, combustion and pyrolysis behaviours of methanol route biodiesel were investigated using thermal analysis techniques known as simultaneous thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) at different heating rates. Reaction regions, peak temperatures, mass loss and heat flow rates of the biodiesel sample are determined using TG-DTG and DSC data. It was found that as the heating rate of the reactions increased, peak temperatures of the reactions shifted higher temperatures, implyin...
Non-isothermal DSC and TG/DTG analysis of the combustion of silopi asphaltites
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2007-06-01)
In this research, non-isothermal combustion and kinetics of Silopi (Turkey) asphaltite samples were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetry (TG/DTG). A sample size of 10 mg, heating rates of 5, 10, 15 and 200C min(-1) were used in the temperature range of 20-600 degrees C, under air atmosphere. Two reaction regions were observed in DSC curves. The first region is due to the evaporation of moisture in asphaltite sample whereas, release of volatile matter and burning of ca...
Thermal, kinetics, and oxidation mechanism studies of light crude oils in limestone and sandstone matrix using TG-DTG-DTA: Effect of heating rate and mesh size
Varfolomeev, Mikhail A.; Nurgaliev, Danis K.; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2016-01-01)
This research was focused on the combustion kinetics and oxidation mechanisms of light crude oils in limestone and sandstone matrices. Similarity of the TGA-DTA curves was produced for different crude oils + limestone or sandstone mixtures indicates that the crude oil undergoes three major transitions, known as low-temperature oxidation, fuel deposition, and high-temperature oxidation when subjected to an oxidizing and constant rate environment. Kinetic analysis of the low- and high-temperature oxidation re...
