Title: Development of the steam-iron process for hydrogen production. Project 9010 quarterly report No. 8 for April 1--June 30, 1978

Abstract

In Test 15, completed in April, the operability of the two-reactor steam-iron process was demonstrated for an extended period of time, and hydrogen was produced for the first time. Test 15 spanned a period of 24 days and included 106 hours of ore circulation, 36 hours of char feed, and 24 hours of self-sustained hydrogen production. The primary objective of this test was to demonstrate the operability of the steam-iron process. Producer bed temperatures were limited to 1600/sup 0/F at 200-psig reactor pressure. The quantity of hydrogen produced, therefore, was low. Test 16, the second consecutive hydrogen-producing test, spanned a period of 7 days. Producer bed temperatures were increased to 1650/sup 0/F to raise the production of hydrogen in the steam-iron reactor. As in Test 15, the reactor internals were completely clean and in excellent condition following the test.
