A horizontal flow reactor to conduct cool flame experiment has been set up and the experiment has been conducted. Different reactor materials and testing conditions have been tried to create the best environment for hydrocarbon (PRF0, PRF65 and PRF85) cool flame oxidation. Temperature oscillation range and position has been recorded by 21 thermocouples. Three trials have been performed to discover the correlation between temperature change and cool flame position. Finally, the suitable conditions for cool flame oxidation have been obtained. Relation between octane number and cool flame characteristic has also been discussed.
