Coke drying for calcium carbide production

By Michal Balko


The thesis deals with analysis of calcium carbide production process. The aim of the thesis is to identify and design savings resulting from the use of energy contained in flue gas, which is produced during the process. In the first part, history and applications of calcium carbide are presented. The thesis then contains mass and energy balance of calcium carbide production. Balance is related to 1 ton of the product. In conclusion, possibilities of flue gas use for coke drying are proposed. The thesis is based on the information from the calcium carbide factory located in Sundsvall, Sweden
