Coke Reactivity Test Furnace

The Coke Reactivity Test Furnace is used to determine lump coke reactivity in carbon dioxide at elevated temperatures, as well as to test its strength after reaction. Coke lumps are descended into the furnace where they are subjected to reaction with counter current CO2 and also to abrasion as they rub together against the walls of the furnace.

These concurrent processes physically weaken and chemically react with the coke lumps, producing
an excess of fines that can decrease burden permeability and result in increased coke rates and lost hot metal production. This test method is designed to indirectly measure this behaviour of coke in the blast furnace. Please consult the Carbolite website for further information and specification details.
