Title (EN) THERMAL COAL UPGRADING PROCESSOR
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE TRAITEMENT POUR LA VALORISATION THERMIQUE DU CHARBON
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus for heating low rank coal having a processor with transverse baffles. Coal is introduced into the top of the processor and passes through the processor by gravity. Heated relatively inert gas is introduced into the processor and flows through the coal, heating the coal and removing moisture from the coal. The temperature of the heated process gas, the size of the coal, the size of the inlet and outlet openings of the processor and the rate of flow of the coal are selected for optimum efficiency.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil conçu pour chauffer du charbon de rang bas et pourvu d'un dispositif de traitement à chicanes transversales. Le charbon est introduit dans la partie supérieure du dispositif de traitement et traverse celui-ci par gravité. Un gaz relativement inerte chauffé est introduit dans le dispositif de traitement et s'écoule dans le charbon, chauffant celui-ci et en éliminant l'humidité. La température du gaz de traitement chauffé, la grosseur du charbon, la taille des orifices d'admission et d'évacuation du dispositif de traitement et la vitesse d'écoulement du charbon sont sélectionnées pour un rendement optimum.
