Abstract

This study examines the temperature change of droplets of coal-water slurry containing petrochemicals (CWSP). The slurry consists of coal and oil processing waste. The temperature of oxidant in a modelled combustion chamber is varied between 600 and 1200 K. The initial size (radius) of CWSP droplets varied in the range of 0.5–3 mm. The study identifies typical temperature trends at the center and on the surface of the CWSP droplet. The temperature trends represent the following stages: (i) heating of fuel, (ii) evaporation of water and a liquid combustible component, (iii) thermal decomposition of coal and yield of volatiles, (iv) gas phase ignition of volatiles together with vapor of the combustible liquid, and (v) heterogeneous ignition of carbon and its burnout. Moreover, these trends indicate the maximum combustion temperatures of CWSP that reflect corresponding heat release. The study specifies the parameters which influence the maximum combustion temperature: fuel component composition, properties of components, droplet size, and the oxidant temperature. Finally, the study defines the minimum ignition temperatures and delay times of sustainable combustion initiation that characterize the ignition inertia. The knowledge of influence of these factors will allow one to predict the optimal conditions for the combustion of the CWSP.
