The parameters of fuel oil pyrolysis initiated by propane-butane-oxygen flame were studied as influenced by the temperature in the pyrolysis zone, time of the fuel oil contact with the initiating flame, and fuel oil feed rate. The experimental data on thermal and flame-initiated fuel oil pyrolysis were compared.
