On-Line Kinetic Analysis in a Fluidized Bed Reactor

D. Roveda & J. Karl
A protocol of pyrolysis tests has been conducted on wood pellets samples in order to get information about its thermal degradation kinetic in a fluidized bed reactor. The concentration of the products is observed over the time, employing an innovative online measuring system, based on UV light absorption. The strong points of this method are: the gas analysis without any manipulation of the samples, the cost lowering due to the used light sources and the...
