A physical thermal model was established in this study, and the gas temperature in the model was measured with temperature sensors under different experimental conditions. The results show that the packed bed, cohesive zone, dripping zone and raceway in melter gasifier can be roughly distinguished by temperature gradient analysis along the vertical direction. The changes of different zones in the COREX melter gasifier were also investigated in this paper under different operation conditions.
