Reactivity measurements of coke particles in five different flow reactors
Magazine article, 1990

Experiments on reactivity of 128 μm coke particles in the gas temperature range from 1150 K to 1370 K have been performed in five different flow reactors in the Nordic countries and all the results were calculated by the shrinking particle model. The activation energy is found to be 25 kcal/mol indicating combustion control by the combined effects of chemical kinetic and pore diffusion (zone II combustion). The overall apparent reaction order was found to be 1.0
