Microwave heating of coal for enhanced magnetic removal of pyrite

Uslu, T
Atalay, U
Amenability of Askale coal to desulfinization by magnetic separation following microwave heating was investigated. The coal was subjected to magnetic separation at 2 T following the treatment in a microwave oven at 850-W power and 2.45-GHz frequency. The increase in magnetic property by microwave heating at 850 W and 2.45 GHz was not sufficient to enhance the removal of considerable amount pyritic sulfur from the coal by magnetic separation at 2 T. Pyritic sulfur content was reduced by 37.46%. With the addition of 5% magnetite, which is an excellent microwave absorber mineral, microwave heating was enhanced and pyritic sulfur content of coal was reduced by 55.11%, by magnetic separation at magnetic field intensity of 2 T following the microwave heating. In addition, 21.54% decrease in ash content and 20.39% increase in calorific value also resulted.

Electrokinetic measurements were carried out in order to determine the properties of oxidized coal surfaces over a wide pH range both in the presence and absence of various metal ions and flotation collectors. It was found that polyvalent cations, such as Fe++, Fe+++ and Al+++ decreased the zeta potential to zero and then reversed the charge. In the presence of cationic collectors, the negative value of zeta potential of oxidized coal was driven positive, below 9.3 to 10.9 depending on the type and concentr...
Analytical investigation of wet combustion process for heavy oil recovery
Bağcı, Ali Suat (Informa UK Limited, 2004-12-01)
Analysis of combustion tube data produced from experiments performed under realistic reservoir conditions is currently the most valid method of investigating in-situ combustion process. In this study, the optimization of water-air ratio for B. Kozluca heavy crude oil, and the comparison of the performance of dry and wet forward combustion processes were studied. An analytical model was used to extend the laboratory results so that the oil production and steam zone volume can be estimated under field conditi...
Performance prediction of in situ combustion processes
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Informa UK Limited, 2001-01-01)
In this research, in situ combustion performance calculations were performed using different algorithms, which were based on oil recovery/volume burned correlative methods. The correlations were based on field and laboratory combustion tube results. A computer method was developed and applied to different heavy crude oil fields. The results showed that an in situ combustion process is applicable in these fields if the volume burned is 30% for field 1 and 40% for field 2.
Laser-induced ignition of solid propellants for gas generators
Ulaş, Abdullah (Elsevier BV, 2008-05-01)
An experimental study was conducted to evaluate the ignitibility of a family of potential gas-generator solid propellants under different CO(2) laser heat fluxes and chamber operating conditions. Six types of solid propellant were tested: one baseline and five variations. The ingredients of the baseline propellant were ammonium nitrate, guanidine nitrate, potassium nitrate, and polyvinyl alcohol. The other five propellant variations were obtained by adding different amounts of carbon black, ammonium perchlo...
Thermal Analysis of Crude oil lignite mixtures by Differential Scanning Calorimetry
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Elsevier BV, 1994-04-01)
Thermal characterization of lignite, crude oils and their 10 and 20% mixtures were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (d.s.c.). The calorific value of the lignite increased in mixtures depending on the crude oil type. In pyrolysis runs, temperature ranges where distillation and visbreaking occur were identified for the crude oils studied. The effect of heating rate was also studied, and higher reaction temperatures and higher heat flow rates were observed at d.s.c. peak thermograms with incre...
