Abstract

In this study, non-isothermal kinetics and a thermal analysis tar sand sample is studied by differential scanning calorimeter and pressurized differential scanning calorimeter. Differential scanning calorimeter and pressurized differential scanning calorimeter curves revealed two reaction regions in the temperature range of 20-600 degrees C. Effect of pressure was also studied in order to see the thermal behavior of a tar sand sample under different elevated pressures. Two different kinetic methods (ASTM and Borchald and Daniels) were used to determine the kinetic parameters of the samples.
