Question

What are the constituents of the producer gas?


  1. CO+N2

  2. CO+H2

  3. CO+O2

  4. CO+O2+CO2


Solution

The correct option is A

CO+N2


Air is passed over the red-hot carbonaceous fuel and carbon monoxide is produced which is called producer or suction gas. The reaction is exothermic and proceeds as follows:

2C(s)+O2(g)+4N2(g)1273 K−−−2CO(g)+4N2(g)Producer Gas

While the mixture of CO + H2 is called water gas and if CO + H2 contains traces of carbon dioxide CO2 then it is called syngas.
