Abstract: A gas entrained flow experimental device of making water gas using microwave as a secondary heat source was established, and absorbing agent was used as the heat transfer medium. Under optimum conditions, the microwave energy consumption per unit mass of coal gasification was only 75.2 kJ · kg−1, and the volume fraction of CO and H2 in the water gas was 94.4%. The stable gasification temperatures or water gas compositions had nothing to do with the amounts of the coal for gasification. With the mass ratios of the coal to absorbing agent decreasing, the gasification temperatures were increased; the contents of CO2, H2 and CH4 in the product water gas were reduced evenly, also, the content of CO was increased; the change in the amplitude of variation was anthracite < bituminous coal < lignite. The reaction rate can be greatly improved by using multi-branched parallel reactors instead of one single larger diameter reactor. [Received: August 22, 2015; Accepted: March 13, 2016]
