Coal and char properties in high temperature entrained flow gasification
With the objective to measure coal conversion at realistic operation conditions the Pressurised High Temperature Entrained Flow Reactor (PiTER) is developed. The pyrolysis of Rhenish lignite is studied at temperatures up to 1600 degrees C and pressures up to 2.5 MPa. At longer residence time (above 1.5 s) volatile yield is 68 wt
