Definition of Cohesive Zone in COREX Melter Gasifier Using Image Processing Method
The cohesive zone plays very important role in the operation of COREX melter gasifier, up to now, definition of the cohesive boundary has always been a challenging task. In this paper, a two-dimensional hot model of melter gasifier, in which paraffin and corn are used to simulate DRI, coke and lump coal respectively, has been established to study the cohesive boundary in this paper. While the whole experimental process is recorded by the high-speed camera, the image processing method is put forward to define the cohesive boundary quantificationally.
