Coke Stabilization Quenching

Coke Stabilization Quenching (CSQ) is a new wet quenching technology which as of 2007 was only applied in Germany. It brings the hot coke into contact with water from both top and bottom. High quenching rate and low reaction time is the essence of the process. Dust emissions as low as 6 g/t coke have been achieved. Coke moisture after the CSQ is approx 2%. This process produces higher quality coke (depending on the coal quality), which can result in energy savings in BF.

Coke Stabilization QuenchingCosts & Benefits

Parent Process: Coke Making
Energy Savings Potential

The technique can reduce coke consumption by 1-2% and may also reduce energy consumption in BF.

CO2 Emission Reduction Potential

Dust emissions are reduced in Coke making. CO2 emissions may be reduced if the good quality coke results in energy savings in BF.
