Applications of the thermogravimetric analysis in the study of fossil fuels

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) of coal and resid liquids and coal and resid solid residues, produced in coal liquefaction and coal- derived resid hydroprocessing in SCTBR (short contact time batch reactor), provides a sensitive, rapid, reproducible means of studying kinetics and mechanisms of fossil fuel conversion processes. SimDis TGA and custom built TGA system for distillation provide unique means to characterize liquid fuels for boiling point distribution. TGA provides information about various weight loss processes that can be a reflection of physical and chemical structure of fossil fuel samples. This technique can also yield TG scanning parameters, such as volatile matter, ... continued below

SimDis TGA and custom built TGA system for distillation provide unique means to characterize liquid fuels for boiling point distribution. TGA provides information about various weight loss processes that can be a reflection of physical and chemical structure of fossil fuel samples. This technique can also yield TG scanning parameters, such as volatile matter, fixed carbon, ash, etc., for monitoring the conversion processes. One example is onset and rate of retrograde reactions during coal liquefaction.
