Abstract: The chemical percolation devolatilization (CPD) model previously developed to describe the devolatilization behavior of rapidly heated coal was based on the chemical structure of the parent coal. Percolation lattice statistics are employed to describe generation of finite tar clusters as labile bonds are cleaved in the infinite coal lattice. The model is used here to describe effects of heating rate and temperature on tar and gas release from coal. Coefficients for the net rate of competition between char formation and side-chain formation are generated from heated screen data performed at five different heating rates. The model also compares well with heated screen data obtained at 1000 K/s and different hold times at the final temperature as well as with data from entrained-flow reactors obtained at higher heating rates (lo4 K/s) where particle temperatures have been measured. Results indicate that the CPD model predictions yield good agreement with pub!ished data for a wide range of coals and particle heating rates.
