The technology of coal gasification has been developed rapidly in recent years for its high usage of coal and low pollution emission. For increasing its applicability to high ash fusion coal, experimental studies on oxygen-enriched gasification characteristics of both high and low fusing temperature coal with 0.5 kg/h ordinary pressure entrained-flow gasification system was carried out. Four important results were discovered: the concentration of effective gas, the rate of carbon conversion and the efficiency of cooled coal gas all increase as increasing of temperature, and the fusing characteristics of ash slag are enhanced; With increasing of [O]/[C], the concentration of effective gas reduces whereas the rate of carbon conversion increases; When the reaction time is increased, all three parameters presented above increase and the fusing characteristics are enhanced more markedly; In addition, different coals have different fusing characteristics even under the same conditions. Ash fusing characteristic of lignite is intensified compared with that of bituminous under the temperature of 1300°C when the reaction time is 1.5 s.
