5、Preparation before Test
5.1 Use the sampling method stipulated in GB/T1997 to take 20kg coke of not less than 25mm on pro rata basis and discard porous coke and coke of oven end. Use a jaw crusher to crush, blend and divide 10kg coke, screen it with round-hole screens of φ25mm and φ23mm and crush and screen coke lumps of greater than φ25mm again. Take screenings of φ23mm, remove thinner coke flakes and strips, retain thicker coke flakes and strips, trim the thicker ones into granular coke lumps manually, screen them with a round-hole screen of φ23mm and blend them with the untrimmed granular coke lumps. Divide to obtain 2kg coke lumps, place them in an I-type drum in two times (1kg per time), subject them to 50 revolutions at 20r/min, and then take them out to screen with a round-hole screen of φ23mm. Divide 900g from the screenings as a sample and quarter it with each part not less than 220g.
Note: coke of 40mm~60mm size range from the test coke oven may be used for sample preparation.
5.2 Place the sample in a drying oven to dry for 2 hours at 170~180℃, take it out, cool it to room temperature, screen it with a round-hole screen of φ23mm and weigh 200±0.05g.
6.1 Open the reactor top cover, spread a layer of high aluminum ball of ф20mm with height of 100mm on the reactor's bottom firstly, place a screen plate flatly on it. Then pack the prepared coke sample of 200±0.5g, put the top cover. Make the electronic couple covering tube on the top cover lie in the center of material layer, otherwise adjust the height of the high aluminum ball. Then fix the top cover and reaction barrel with screws. Put the reactor into electric stove, and place it on the bracket on the top of stove, place the asbestos board between the bracket and cover of electric stove for insulating against heat. Put the roof brick made from high aluminum light brick around the flange of the reactor in order to reduce heat loss.
6.2 Connect the intake pipe of the reactor with gas course cabinet well, the exhaust pipe should be stretched outdoors, then inserted into the electronic couple.
6.3 Put through power supply of precise temperature controller, firstly to use inserting regulator temperature rising current, the current should rise to maximum within 15min, and raise temperature automatically. The speed of temperature rising is generally within 8～16℃/min. When the temperature in the coke layer reaching 400℃, and feed nitrogen with the flow of 0.81/min to protect the coke and prevent it from burning.
6.4 When the temperature in the material layer reaching 1050℃, preheat the mouth of CO2 gas cylinder. When the temperature reaching 1100℃, cut off the nitrogen, feed the carbon dioxide with the flow of 51/min, start the reaction, the reaction time is 2h. After feeding carbon dioxide, the temperature in the material layer should resume to 1100±5℃ within 5～10 min, and has been keeping at 1100±5℃ in the course of reacting.
6.5 After 2h of reaction, reaction stops, stop heating. Cut off the gas course of carbon dioxide, replace it with nitrogen, cool the coke, control the flow within 21/min. Take the reactor from the reacting stove, and place it on the bracket to cool it. When the coke is cooled below 100℃, stop feeding the nitrogen, open the upper cover of the reactor, pour the coke, weigh it and make a record, accurate to "g", calculate G1.
6.6 Put the coke after reaction into the Ⅰrotary drum, rotate it with the speed of 20r/min, then fetch the coke, sift it with the hole screen of 10mm, and weigh the coke on the screen G2.
7、The results calculation
Coke reactivity CRI is calculated according to formula (1).
Post-reaction strength CSR is calculated according to formula (2).
In the formula: m—weight of coke sample, g;
m1—weight of residual coke, g;
m2—after rotation ofⅠrotary drum, weight of coke with the grit size of more than 10mm , g;
The error of coke reactivity Gr and post-reaction strength Sar in the same laboratory can't exceed the following data after the reaction.
9.1 The working current of reaction stove is comparatively large, the maximum working current is around 30A. So when connecting the power supply of reaction stove, pay attention to connect it firmly, in order to avoid bad contact, and influencing the experimental effects.
9.2. Connect the gas tube among the parts of gas course cabinet well. And tighten them with the iron wire, after connecting, check whether the gas course is smooth and whether it leaks gas, ensure the air tightness and smoothness of the gas course.
9.3 Because of a very high temperature of reaction stove, so when fetching the reactor, wear the protective equipment well, pay attention to the safety to prevent accidents such as scalding.
9.4 The separate grounding wire must be equipped with this instrument in order to avoid disturbance from the high temperature to influence the normal working.
