The history of gaseous fuel, important for lighting, heating, and cooking purposes throughout most of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, began with the development of analytical and pneumatic chemistry in the 18th century. The manufacturing process for "synthetic fuel gases" (also known as "manufactured fuel gas", "manufactured gas" or simply "gas") typically consisted of
A method for recovery of heat generated by the combustion of coal in situ within coal seams in the earth. Three embodiments are described: one, in which the coal seam crops out and into which can be drilled and inserted a pipe, through the coal seam, to a central point, where it is joined with a vertical pipe drilled from the surface.
The main function of the Primary air fan or PA fan is to carry the pulverized coal to the furnace as fuel for combustion. This process is used to create the steam that is the primary process in the thermal power plant. In plants the PA fans supply air for conveying of the pulverized coal from coal mills to the .
The hot producer-gas formed in V is passed round the retort E in the flues n 2 n 2, and ultimately goes away through K to the furnace where it is to be used. The retort E is charged with ordinary bituminous coal which is submitted to destructive distillation by the heat communicated through the flues n 2 n 2 and is thus converted into coke. The gases formed during this process pass into the upper portion of V and
In drying coal to be used as fuel for a coal-fired boiler, the coal is dried at a temperature of 80 to 150° C. by using combustion exhaust gas having passed through an air heater for the coal-fired boiler. Moreover, after medium-quality or low-quality coal is heated to a temperature of 300 to 500° C. at a heating rate of not less than 100° C. per minute and then cooled to a temperature of
Underground gasification in deep oilfields is a chemical coal mining method that converts the coal resources of a petroliferous basin into a combustible gas in the original natural state and transports it to the ground. The process is realized in the gasification channel of the underground gasifier.
In conventional coal combustion power plants, pulverized coal is burned in a boiler, where the heat vaporizes water in steam tubes. The resulting steam turns the blades of a turbine, and the mechanical energy of the turbine is converted to electricity by a generator.

A cast refractory panel or tiles much like those used in glass furnaces would be placed on the fire side of the panels to prevent corrosive combustion products from contacting the air passages. The panels would be heated by radiation from the 1540°C (2800°F) or higher combustion products and the air flowing through the panels would be heated from approximately 700°C (1300°F) to 930°C

The coal combustion efficiency by the double lance injection is 5.1% higher than that by single lance injection. Variability in coal properties can influence the quality of the hot metal
When a mixture of air and little steam is passed through a bed of red hot coal, carbon (of the coal) combines with oxygen (of the air) in the lower part of the furnace to form CO2 C + O2 CO2 + 97
