A description of the installation for adiabatic compression in a cyclic process is presented here. Experimental results of conversion of light hydrocarbons by this process are given. New structural design solutions and ceramic coatings obtained by applying the technology of microarc oxidation were used in the compression unit of the chemical compression reactor (the piston–cylinder assembly). This allowed us to forego the use of compression rings and lubricant, to achieve a high compression ratio, and to obtain the pressure and temperature required in the reaction zone for oxidative conversion.
