Simplex Gasification Demonstration in the Wellman-Galusha Gasifier.
NTIS: PB/84-103324 :110 pages
The objectives of this project were to produce at least 200 tons of simplex briquets and to evaluate their performance as a fixed-bed, dry-bottom gasifier feedstock. To accomplish this, 240 tons of caking coal and shredded municipal refuse were compacted into simplex briquets and gasified in a Wellman-Galusha producer at the Bureau of Mines in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was concluded that the briquets have good potential as a gasifier feedstock and that the briquets do not swell or cake even though they contain 67 wt pct of a highly caking eastern bituminous coal.
