Technical principles for scaling up semitechnical coking tests
Semitechnical-scale coking tests are a rapid and cost-effective way of obtaining results which are of general relevance to modern industrial coking. The aims of this project were: (i) to simulate, at technical scale, the parameters relevant to industrial coke production, so as to establish general principles for applying semitechnical test results to modern coking techniques using higher, wider chambers; (ii) to study the influence of different measurement techniques on the swelling pressure; (iii) to develop ways of preventing the gas collection space and furnace floor from affecting heat transfer and increasing the final temperature of the charge in the middle of the chamber; (iv) to identify the main processes generating internal gas pressure in the plastic zone. Semitechnical tests give a reliable indication of coke quality and internal gas pressure, also in the higher, wider, modern coking chambers, but the typical variability of internal gas pressure necessitates further comparative research.
