Investigation of pyrolysis of methane under conditions of filtering through a heated porous medium
Annotation
An unsteady-state one-dimensional mathematical model is used to perform a theoretical analysis of the process of thermal decomposition of methane under conditions of filtering through a heated porous medium formed by granules of commercial-grade carbon. A scheme of the process kinetics is developed. The effect of the basic characteristics of commercial-grade carbon and of the operating conditions on the efficiency of the process is treated. Laboratory experiments are performed in support of the commercial-scale technology of production of granular pyrocarbon. A comparison of the calculation results with experimental data demonstrates their good agreement.
