Paper Title:
The Effect of the Pyrolysis Furnace Type on the Yield of Silicon Carbide Whiskers Produced from Rice Husks
  Abstract

The production of silicon carbide whiskers (SiCw) by using rice husks has attracted a considerable attention due to a lower production cost as compared to the other processing routs. In the present investigation, the effect of pyrolysis furnace type (vertical tube, horizontal tube, and graphite chamber) on the yield of the resultant SiCw was investigated. It was concluded that the maximum yield was achieved by using a horizontal tube furnace whereas the minimum yield was obtained in a vertical tube furnace. These results were rationalized in terms of the different conditions for the evacuation of the produced gases from the different pyrolysis furnaces.
