Electrically Calcined Anthracite (ECA) ECA is anthracite that has not been calcined by a gas oven but rather an electric furnace, and the process is referred to as 'electro-calcination'. Electro-calcination is functionally similar to the traditional gas-fired method and produces a product that is largely indistinguishable, yet it is ...


A. A Boateng, in Rotary Kilns (Second Edition), 2016. Abstract. Petroleum coke is a by-product of the coker process in the oil industry. In its raw form, it is also called "green coke" or green petroleum coke. Calcined petroleum coke is an important industrial commodity that links the oil and the metallurgical industries as it provides a source of carbon for various metallurgical ...


For the carbide coke, a run-of-the-mine brown coal, Hermine Henriette II, with a salty ash, was processed. The procedure was to reduce the ash content from 12% to 0.7% in the coal, with a resulting coke with 3% ash. The coal was reduced in size to 1 to 1.5 mm in a roller mill, then mixed with the acidic water from the final wash steps.


Calcined petroleum coke is used for the production of carbon anodes in the Hall-Héroult aluminum smelting process due to a combination of low impurity levels, ready availability, and relatively low cost. This article provides a review of the history and use of calcined petroleum coke for anode production and describes the different calcining technologies used by the industry. The article ...


Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) is manufactured from Raw Petroleum Coke (RPC) by the process known as high temperature pyrolysis. The process is carried out in a rotary or vertical kiln at temperatures exceeding 1300 deg C. Calcination of CPC is essentially a high temperature treatment in which the carbon to hydrogen ratio of RPC is increased from 20 to 1000 and above.


As part of Rain Carbon's commitment to a clean and efficient industry that works in harmony with the environment, the company has made a significant investment in heat recovery systems at its calcined petroleum coke (CPC) facilities. These heat recovery projects co-generate electric power from waste heat recovered in the calcining process.


Petroleum coke is a waste product of oil refining; refining tar sands, in turn, produces significantly more pet coke than refining lighter crudes. For example, the pet coke production at BP's ...


In this work, four kinds of green needle cokes (coal-based green needle coke and petroleum-based green needle coke) have been used as the raw materials to investigate the changes of micro-structure during the calcination process.


potential for toxicity for calcined coke. Calcinations of coke are usually d one in a rotary kiln at about. 1300°C to 1500°C. During the process the coke is further. decomposed, increasing in ...


Calcination follows these steps as a sort of finishing process, serving multiple purposes in bringing the finished catalyst to market. The primary reason for calcining the catalyst is to cure or "set" the actual catalyst material, typically a metal, onto the catalyst carrier or substrate, typically a ceramic-based material such as alumina .

Coke production facilities generate process solid wastes other than coke breeze (which aver-ages 1 kg/t of product). Most of the solid wastes contain hazardous components such as benzene and PAHs. Waste streams of concern include resi-dues from coal tar recovery (typically 0.1 kg/t of coke), the tar decanter (0.2 kg/t of coke), tar stor-

12.2 Coke Production

The blended coal mass is heated for 12 to 20 hours for metallurgical coke. Thermal energy from the walls of the coke chamber heats the coal mass by conduction from the sides to the middle of the coke chamber. During the coking process, the charge is in direct contact with the heated wall surfaces and develops into an aggregate "plastic zone".


Calcined petroleum coke (CPC) is created from green petroleum coke (GPC), a by-product of refining crude oil. While CPC can be created using a number of processes -- including rotary kiln, hearth and vertical shaft technologies -- the high-temperature conversion from green coke to calcined coke alters the material in key three ways:
