Summary

Petroleum coke, a by-product from petroleum refining, is discussed with reference to production, availability, and analysis. With 1/10 the ash of coal and at 1/3 less cost, petroleum coke is very attractive for use in tunnel kilns. Testing in brick tunnel kilns, preparation, and combustion characteristics are examined.
