IMAGING GAS TRANSPORT AND REACTIVITY EFFECTS IN METALLURGICAL COKE USING XENON (101)
Download Full Paper
- The strength and reactivity of metallurgical coke determines its desirability for use in a blast furnace. Previous work showed reactivity is affected by both gas transport limitations and the selective reactivity of different coke components. In this study we use xenon gas as a contrast agent to gain insight into gas transport in coke samples before and after reaction in a furnace.
