The Production of Olefin-Containing and Fuel Gases reviews the production processes of gasification of distillate and residual liquid fuels employed in France, Germany, UK, USA, and Russia. The monograph first offers information on the methods of chemical treatment of gases and products from the pyrolysis of crude oil and raw materials for the process of gasification. Discussions focus on the production of raw materials for oil-chemical synthesis and production of oil-chemical products. The text then ponders on the theoretical presentation of high temperature pyrolysis of hydrocarbons and pyrolysis of hydrocarbon stock and resins. Topics include thermodynamic representation and mechanism of high temperature pyrolysis of hydrocarbons; methods for the calculation of the composition of a gas at equilibrium conditions; and dynamics of the change in composition of the reaction products in the gasification process. The publication takes a look at contemporary installations for the gasification of liquid fuels, including the process of autothermic pyrolysis of hydrocarbons with air or steam-air blast and the processes of autothermic pyrolysis of crude petroleum in the presence of a catalyst. The monograph is a dependable reference for chemical engineering students and plant engineers.
