Entrained flow gasifier with large capacity and slagging tap is usually use for IGCC and large scale chemical industrial factory. While, there are 57% of reserved coal is high fusion temperature coal, which cannot satisfy the requirement of the gasification for slagging tap. Therefore, two typical kinds of Chinese coals were selected and gasified in a lab-scale down-flow gasifier with feeding rate at around 1kg/h. The results show that along with the increasing temperature, the carbon conversion and cold gas efficiency will be increased quickly when temperature is below 1400°C, and then increased slowly when above 1400°C. The optimum O/C molar ratio is around 1:1, the cold gas efficiency and carbon conversion under this experimental condition (1300-1400°C) are separately 31% and 80%. At the optimum gasification condition, increasing the residence time will also increase the coal gas concentration, carbon conversion and cold gas efficiency. Under this experimental condition, the best residence time is at least 1.5~2.0s.
