fluid coke

The @[email protected] product of high-boiling hydrocarbon fractions (heavy residues of petroleum or coal processing) produced by the fluid @[email protected] process.
Fluid @[email protected] consists of spherulitic grains with a spherical layer structure and is generally less graphitizable than @[email protected] Therefore, it is not suitable as @[email protected] for @[email protected] products and is also less suitable for polycrystalline carbon products. Because of its isotropy it is less suitable to produce an anisotropic @[email protected] All @[email protected] contain a fraction of matter that can be released as volatiles during heat treatment. This @[email protected], the so-called volatile matter, is in the case of fluid @[email protected] about 6 wt.%.
