A novel, short contact time liquefaction reactor has been developed which combines the advantages of direct, electrical resistance heating of the reactor tube with a constant flow of liquefaction solvent through a fixed bed of coal to remove products from the heated zone. Preliminary results are presented to show the effect of pressure, peak temperature, isothermal holding time and heating rate on the primary dissolution of UK Point of Ayr coal in tetralin.
