INFLUENCE OF CHARGE DENSITY ON THE COKEFACTION PROCESS IN WIDE COKE OVENS
When rebuilding coke batteries, it is advisable to utilise wider ovens to improve the environment, reduce operating costs, ensure a better productivity index (kg/man-hour), and reaffirm the supremacy of European technology in the construction of such facilities. One adverse result of using wider ovens is the decrease in specific hourly production (kg/m2/h). However this can be kept within reason by taking action on the charge density. The objective of the research was thus to make an in-depth study of the influence of charge density on the coking process in wide ovens (550 mm) and of means of modifying charge density. The research was conducted on pilot-plant scale using the CSM's experimental coking facility. The programme included coking tests of various blends in a 450 mm wide oven and tests with the same blends and with individual coals using a 550 mm oven.
