Influence of Coke Quenching Method on its Reactivity

Vladimir Gusak, Igor Drozdnik, Vladimir Shmalko and Yuriy Kaftan

The results of investigation for the influence of the coke quenching method on the coke reactivity were shown. Using thermogravimetry and scanning electron microscopy significant differences of the porous structure and peculiarities of the structure of coke carbon, which forms the pores walls in both wet and dry quenching coke, were discovered. It was established that higher reactivity of wet quenching coke is due to its higher porosity (60 % higher than that of dry quenching coke).
