Preliminary results of research on conversion of hexane in oxidizing plasma jet
Hexane was converted in Ar - C02 and Ar - 02 arc plasma jet. CO and Hz are the main products of conversion. Increase in the specific energy from 8.5 to 17 MJ/kg results in increased conversion yield to over 70%. In the case of Ar- CO2 plasma content of CO and H2 at high specif c energies were over 30 and 20 per cent by volume, respectively. In case of Ar-02 plasma they were respectively 30 and 40 per cent by volume. Energy consumption during the process of generating synthesis gas in Ar-COZ plasma was 18-22 MJ/cu.m, and in Ar-O2 plasma 9-11 MJ/cu.m.
