Title: A Comparative Study Of The Gasification Of Petroleum Coke And Charcoal
Author: Elfaki, Hind Omer Elsheikh
Abstract: This preliminary study aims to investigate the possibility of Sudanese petroleum coke (Fula crude) gasification, and its technical challenges. It provides experimental comparative data between charcoal as traditional gasification fuel and the petroleum coke, as fuel and as producer gas. The study is divided into two main themes: 1- Fuel Tests: moisture content, ash content, density and fuel calorific value. 2- Gas Producer Characteristics Tests: gas mixture components, flame temperature, flame duration, fuel consumption rate and ash residue amount after the gasification. The type of gasifier which was used in the experiments is updraft gasifier (thermal application). The results showed that petroleum coke gasification is far better than charcoal gasification because it has high heat density, low ash content and lower fuel consumption. -
