Statistical analysis and theoretical calculation have been carried out to study the parameters affecting dome temperature of COREX melter gasifier by using actual plant data. The relationship between parameters and dome temperature has been realized qualitatively and quantitatively. It is found that the dome temperature is influenced significantly by metallization, fuel rate, coal rate, coke rate, and oxygen volume. High volatile matter and low moisture coal are beneficial to maintaining dome temperature. Regression analysis was carried out and equations have been developed to predict and regulate dome temperature.
