Fast pyrolysis of Turkish hazelnut shell by using novel wire mesh reactor

The present paper studies fast pyrolysis of Turkish hazelnut shell under various conditions in a novel wire mesh reactor (WMR). Particular emphasis was given to understand volatile yield at high heating rates at elevated temperatures. Volatile yields from fast pyrolysis (~3000 ºC/s) showed higher values from both as received (80 wt.%) and dried fuels (85 wt.%) than proximate analysis (PA) (75 wt. %) done at low heating rates (20 ºC/min). Brunauer–Emmitt–Teller (BET) surface analysis was carried out to determine surface areas from the chars obtained from WMR tests.

This thesis investigates the single particle combustion behavior of a Turkish lignite and two agricultural biomass fuels using a recently developed wire mesh reactor coupled with a high-speed camera. The fuels under investigation are endogenous of Turkey and present potential to gradually replace the currently burned lignite coals for electricity generation. This change requires a large amount of data so that the oftentimes disparate fuels can be properly co-fired. The scientific outcome of the study will b...

The objective of this work was the investigation of sugar beet pulp biomass and polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) bioplastic wastes using fast heating and slow heating rate thermochemical processes. Biomass pyrolysis was conducted under a nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and steam atmosphere using low heating rate horizontal tube furnace (HTF) and high heating rate drop tube furnace (DTF). The biochars were gasified under carbon dioxide using low thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA) and high heating rate wire mesh reactor ...
Characterization of ceramic ware fragments from Aizanoi-Turkey by micro Raman, XRPD and SEM-EDX spectrometry
CANER, EVİN; Güney, Bilge Alp (2017-04-15)
Ceramic fragments from the antique city of Aizanoi, Turkey were investigated by micro Raman spectrometry in conjunction with XRPD and SEM-EDX analyses. Some basic physical characteristics of the ceramic samples were also investigated. Mite and muscovite were determined as the main clay types in the ceramic fragments. Clay used in the production of ceramic wares was found to be calcareous in most of the samples. No high temperature clay minerals were detected in the ceramics. All ceramic fragments were found...

Hızlı emülsiyon tarama sistemi, Nükleer emülsiyon tekniğinin kullanıldığı deneylerde veri alımı ve işlenmesininde kullanılmaktadır. Nükleer emülsiyon tekniği geçmişte mikron hassasiyeti gerektiren araştırmalarda başarıyla uygulanmış bir çok keşif bu tekniğin uygulanması sonucunda yapılmıştır. Örneğin 1947 C. Powel'ın Pion'u nükleer emülsiyon tekniğini kullanarak keşfetmiştir. Günümüzde ise nükleer emülsiyon tekniğinin en büyük çapta uygulandığı proje OPERA deneyidir. OPERA...
Ignition behavior of Turkish biomass and lignite fuels at low and high heating rates
Magalhaes, Duarte; Kazanç Özerinç, Feyza; Ferreira, Afonso; Rabacal, Miriam; Costa, Mario (2017-11-01)
The main objective of this work was to investigate the ignition behavior of two Turkish biomass residues (almond shell and olive residue) and two Turkish lignite coals (Tuncbilek and Soma) at low and high heating rates. The low heating rate experiments (20 K/min) were performed in a thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA) coupled with a differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) analyzer, while the high heating rate experiments (10(5) K/s) were conducted in an entrained flow reactor (EFR) coupled with a high-speed im...
