Abstract

This paper presents tar sampling protocols for pressurised and atmospheric large scale gasification processes. Methods for constructing sampling lines either to on-line analysers or into sampling systems are described. The tar sampling system consists of a heated probe, a particulate filter and a series of impinger bottles. Dichloromethane is used as the tar abosrbing solvent. The solvent containing bottles are placed in a cold bath so that gradual cooling of the sampled gas from about 0°C to the final temperature -79°C takes place in them. Recommendations for suitable sampling gas flow rates and gas temperatures are given. Tar characterisation methods based on different garvimetric measurements and GC analysis are described.
