The invention relates to the field of technology for high-temperature carbon fibrous materials used as reinforcing fillers for composite materials based on polymer, carbon, ceramic and metal matrices.

Known unit for thermal treatment of carbonaceous fibrous materials in the production of carbon fibrous materials [1].

The Assembly includes a housing with zonal heaters. Installed inside the case of a graphite slit-like chamber, with inlet and outlet valves, nozzles for removal of gaseous products, located at a distance of 60-70% of the length from the entrance, provided with a device for combustion of volatile products. Under camera posted by pre-heat treatment (carbonization) of the material in the form of boxes located throughout the length of the zone heaters.

The unit has structural deficiencies that impair the process of heat treatment of carbon-containing fibrous materials and the quality of the obtained carbon fibrous materials.

The input and output of the processed material in the pre-carbonization arranged in one place, and the heating zone are not isolated from each other. In the volatile products released during various t is mperature heat treatment, have access to and interoperability of material in all heating zones, which degrades the quality of the products.

The location of the device for removal of volatile products in the middle of the heating chamber forces the volatile products released at relatively low temperatures, to move into the zone of higher temperatures, where increases their reactivity to interact with the processed material there, which deteriorate the properties of the obtained carbon fibrous material. The effect of the penetration of volatile products released in a high-temperature heating zones, in areas with relatively low temperatures also adversely affect the formation of the properties of the final material due to condensation of volatiles on its surface.

A device for high-temperature processing (graphitisation) carbonaceous fibrous materials [2], including electric graphite furnace, hopper, tightly connected with metallic water-cooled furnace housing, in which is placed a drum kiln feed processed material at the outlet of the furnace coupled with a water seal to prevent access of air into the furnace, above the zone of maximum temperature of the furnace has a built-pipe to remove volatile products of thermal processing. Metallicheskom building and insulating block furnace done horizontal channels (slots) for input and output of the processed material, as well as fitting for supplying neutral gas.

This device closest to the proposed technical solution design features, therefore, used as a prototype high-temperature zones.

Design of devices for high-temperature heat treatment inherent disadvantages: the result of the placement of the socket to remove volatile products, together with tightly connected to the furnace body water gate at the output hopper for the input into the furnace is catastrophic deterioration of the properties of the obtained carbon fibrous material, the reduction in work of a graphite heater and graphite snap insulating block furnace. Specified negative effect seen in the involuntary admission of volatile products in the form of a mixture of water vapor, carbon dioxide, paraffin and unsaturated hydrocarbons from inorganic compounds in the zone of high temperature in which the chemical activity of the volatile, primarily in relation to thermoablative material increases. When interacting with fibrous material and graphite snap fade. The obtained carbon fiber material loses its operational properties.

The objective of the proposed technical solution is to remove the s these shortcomings, increase performance and stability of the process of heat treatment of carbon-containing fibrous materials, simplifying the design of technological equipment of the process.

Most comprehensive achievement is due to the fact that, in accordance with the proposed technical solution installation for thermal treatment of carbonaceous fibrous material includes a device carbonization and isolated from it the device of the graphitization, between which is embedded a device for accumulating and cooling the carbonized material and/or washing and drying. Thus the device of the graphitization is made in the form of two identical electric graphite furnaces, not communicating with each other and placed parallel one above the other in height, and each of the electric graphite furnace for high temperature treatment of carbonized material including a heating element, a pipe for the removal of volatile products, the gate output to prevent access of the gas environment in the furnace, pipelines for supplying inert gas, drive mechanism for transporting thermoablative material cooled metal housing with insulating block in which done the horizontal slotted channels for transporting material, in accordance to present the technical solution of the input channel is made in the form of a tube of rectangular cross section for removal of volatile products, and between its upper and lower internal surfaces above the conveyed material at an angle to these surfaces has a graphite screen with clearances between the upper surface of the channel and the upper end of the screen, and also between the bottom surface of the channel and the bottom end of the screen, which separates the heating chamber to the zone of maximum temperature, containing a heater, and the zone of moderate temperature, while the screen is made of graphite in the form of a plate, whose lower end in the plane of the processed material is arranged in the sample in the form of flats width for the passage of material to be processed so what side of the screen along the flats remain the sides of equal width and the depth of the flats on the edge of the screen determines the size of the gap and is equal to the thickness of the material being transported and the plane of the flats is located at an angle to the lower surface of the screen, which is determined by the thickness of the gap.

The first distinctive feature of the proposed technical solution is that the system for thermal processing of carbonaceous fibrous material includes a device carbonization and isolated from it the device of the graphitization, between which is embedded a device for accumulating and cooling the carbonized material and/or washing and drying.

- The I the feasibility of establishing a facility for thermal treatment of carbonaceous fibrous materials with separate devices carbonization temperatures of 450°C (low temperature) and the graphitization to temperatures 1200-2400°C medium and high temperature) is determined by the need to prevent unregulated interaction of volatile products released during the pyrolysis in areas of low and high temperatures with the material at different temperatures. This is because released during low temperature pyrolysis of CO, CO2N2Oh, and others have a high chemical reactivity at high temperatures. As a result of interaction increases weight loss, oxidation and, as a consequence, a sharp decline in the quality of the finished material.

The traditional use of inorganic compounds as a catalyst carbonation reaction of carbonaceous fibrous material increases the rate of carbonation. However, penetrating into the high temperature zone, they interact with thermoablative material, which deteriorates the performance properties of the finished carbon fiber material.

The location of the device for accumulating and cooling the carbonized material and/or washing and drying, thermal processing of carbonaceous fibrous material between devices carbonation provides additional technical effect: cooling thermoablative material after carbonization predot await unregulated development process thermocatalytic carbonization, the resulting heat by flow of exothermic reactions of pyrolysis and resulting in catastrophic deterioration thermoablative material. To reduce the exothermic effect usually reduce the speed of transportation of the material and increase the dimensions of the device, thereby reducing the capacity of the equipment. When using storage devices is the rapid cooling of the material and the "freezing" of the pyrolysis process. The result eliminated the post-effect of self-heating of the material and decrease its quality. There is no need to reduce the speed of transportation of the material during heat treatment and to increase the overall dimensions in length.

The next distinctive feature of the proposed setup is that included in its structure, the device of the graphitization is made in the form of two identical electric graphite furnaces, not communicating with each other and placed parallel one above the other in height. This difference is allowed to obtain the technical effect of increasing the life of the refusal of the proposed installation. Resource operation to failure depends on the duration of work graphite heaters when the temperature of the graphitization, which is compared with the duration of the works sendrpid graphite design elements as the graphitization, and device carbonation. Therefore, the work mode setup thermal processing of carbonaceous fibrous material is discontinued when out of the graphite heater device of the graphitization. Besides the fact that the process is cancelled at least 24 hours for preventive care and replacement of the graphite heater new, significantly increases the number of technical waste due to the irretrievable loss of an expensive source of fibrous material in the device of carbonization and carbonization of intermediates in a device of the graphitization.

To address these shortcomings in the device of the graphitization used two identical electric graphite furnace, which in turn are included in the graphitization process carbonized fibrous material. When the mode of the graphitization is one of the furnaces, the second is on prevention: it replaced a failed heater for a new one, it is dressed transporting feed. All connectors of the furnace is closed and it is in standby mode graphitisation.

When failure of the heater operating the furnace turns on the power to the furnace, which is in the standby mode, to transporting the broach filed the end of carbonized fibrous material from accumulating inogo device. Removing the oven temperature is carried out on the transport wire. After leaving the furnace at a predetermined temperature of the heat treatment is subjected to a carbonization material.

Another difference electric graphite furnace for high temperature treatment of carbonized fibrous material is that the input channel is made in the form of a tube of rectangular cross section for removal of volatile products, and between its upper and lower internal surfaces above the conveyed material at an angle to these surfaces has a graphite screen with clearances between the upper surface of the channel and the upper end of the screen, and also between the bottom surface of the channel and the bottom end of the screen, which separates the heating chamber to the zone of maximum temperature, containing a heater, and the zone of moderate temperature.

The specified design feature of the device of the graphitization of the proposed setup allows to improve the conditions of high temperature treatment of carbonized fibrous material due to the separation of flows of volatile products released in areas of average and maximum temperatures of the graphitization. Sloped built-in screen in the input channel of the device of the graphitization through which the processed material is transported and removed the opposite direction of its transportation is tiravanija volatile products, separates the stream of volatile released in the medium temperature zone below the screen, from the stream of volatile products released in the zone of maximum temperature of the graphitization, which features a graphite heater, and remove heat from the camera device of the graphitization above the screen. The screen installed in the channel featured way, almost completely eliminates the possibility of penetration of chemically aggressive flying in the zone of maximum temperature.

Constructive-technological scheme of the proposed installation for the heat treatment is such that the nozzle for removing volatiles from the reaction zone device carbonization is located at the exit and inlet to remove volatile from the heating chamber located at the inlet of the graphitization and simultaneously functions as a channel for input in him carbonized material. Structural scheme of the device carbonization organizes the evacuation of volatile products in the direction of transportation of the processed material, preventing the flow of volatile whose temperature is relatively high, in the low temperature zone of the device carbonization, where they can condense on carbonization material and together with him to move into the zone of elevated temperatures, which, exposed to secondary pyrolysis, is formed on top of the spine of the coke material film, krupkova it and greatly reduces its properties as a precursor of a carbon graphite material.

Concluding formula of the present invention is the difference characterizing the design features a graphite screen installed in the entrance channel of the device of the graphitization. Graphite screen is made in the form of a plate of constant thickness, the lower end of which has a chamfer, verterbrae in the middle of the plate so that the sides of the formed sides of equal width and the depth of the flats on the end plate determines the depth of the gap and is equal to the thickness of the material being transported and the plane of the flats is located at an angle to the lower surface of the screen, which is determined by the size of the gap. These structural features of the screen to improve the conditions of heat treatment carbonized material, because in addition to the separation chamber of the heating device of the graphitization zone maximum and average temperatures and separate evacuation of volatile products released in these areas, graphite screen with structural elements, components examined differences more fully prevents access medium volatile in the zone of maximum temperature. This effect occurs due to the fact that the gap between the screen and the channel is guaranteed to equal that is mine material and stably hold for the entire process of thermal treatment of the material placed on both sides of the screen borders, which are the stops. This reduces the degree of injury of the material in the friction of the surface of the screen and canal transportation.

The use of the screen the proposed design eliminates the need to embed in the channel furnace special stops to ensure clearance between the screen and the channel that you want have to reconfigure height when changing the range of the processed material thickness. This operation is rather complicated and time-consuming, given the high processing temperatures and small values of the gaps. Changeover screens of various clearances of the proposed design is very simple and can be performed during thermal processing by replacing one screen to the other.

Graphite screen (Fig.5) comprises a chamfer (26) and the support flanges (27), which provide a guaranteed clearance between the lower end of the graphite screen (17 Fig.4) and the bottom surface of the channel. The graphitization furnace (15) the device of the graphitization (2 Fig.1) output is equipped with gates (12 Fig.3, 1), through which is discharged from the zone of high temperature heat treatment of graphite material (21). The presence of the stopper (12) is supplied to the inert gas through the pipe (22), at the outlet of the furnace graphite material (21) provides the removal of volatile products (shown as wavy arrows in Fig.3, 4) in the direction opposite to the transportation of the material (21).

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to technology of preparing fibrous carbon materials via pyrolysis of structure and nonaromatic hydrocarbons and provides a method residing in that catalyst in the form of dust-like nickel-based alloy is atomized into argon-blown reactor, heated to 600-1150°C, after which hydrocarbon gas is continuously supplied and gaseous pyrolysis products are withdrawn. When pyrolysis process is stopped, product is cooled in common with catalyst. Distinguishing feature of invention is that inert gas and catalyst are introduced through jet atomizer into reactor provided with heaters disposed above and below disk mounted therein. Catalyst is supplied to atomizer through measuring device into settling chamber shaped as reverted barrel with cross-section in the form of rotated disk sector, wherein dust-like catalyst precipitates onto upper surface of the disk in a 1-3-mm layer during the time of activated disk rotation drive. Then, hydrocarbon gas is supplied from the heated lower side of the disk surface. Gaseous pyrolysis products are withdrawn from nipples disposed in upper part of reactor and settling chamber. When pyrolysis process is ended, disk rotation drive is actuated and solid pyrolysis products are removed by the aid of scraper into cooled pyrolysis product intake tank, into which inert gas is also fed. End of pyrolysis process is determined from reduced concentration of hydrogen and pyrolysis products withdrawn from reactor. Stirring of gas medium in the reactor is accomplished by rotation of disk provided with blades attached to its lower surface.

EFFECT: improved quality of product.
