X-ray Study of the Structure of Cokes Carbonized At Different Temperatures.
NTIS: PB 231 294 :12 pages
The Bureau of Mines analyzed the structure of a high-grade metallurgical coke, carbonized at different temperatures in the range 500 deg to 1,000 deg c, through x-ray diffraction studies. Growth in the crystallite size with increasing coking temperature was calculated from profile analysis and compared with values obtained from the radial distribution function. The carbonization temperature appeared to have little influence upon the stack height, whereas the layer diameters more than doubled in size between 500 deg and 1,000 deg c. These results are comparable with those obtained from other studies of poorer quality cokes.
