Abstract: Coal particle combustion experiments were performed in a drop tube furnace (DTF) with oxygen concentration from 21% to 100%, in N2 and CO2 mixtures, under quiescent flow conditions. Small particles (75–90 micron) of a high-volatile bituminous coal (PSOC-1451) and a lignite coal (DECS-11) are analyzed with particular attention to the particle burnout times and the particle surface temperatures. These experimental measurements are compared with the predictions of a comprehensive model of coal combustion. Combust…
