Aquathermolysis of Bituminous Oil in Supercritical Water with Ultradispersed Particles of Magnetite and Coal


Objectives: To analyze the bituminous oil in supercritical water with ultra dispersed magnetite particles and coal. Methods: Experiments conducted in a closed reactor under conditions that allow the transition from the aqueous phase into the supercritical fluid. Results: The general regularities of fundamental change, of particular group composition are shown. The viscosity properties of the original and the converted oil investigated. Degradation of high molecular parts of raw material to form light hydrocarbons that are absent in the initial crude oil Conclusion: Considerable decrease in the viscosity of the transformed oil in comparison to the first crude oil is recorded.
