Yes, of course Krakatoa has a pyroclastic flow. Every volcano has an pyroclastic flow, which can travel up to at huge speeds. Krakatoa's pyroclastic flow raced an amazing 200 mph over 20 miles of open sea.

Yes Krakatoa has pyroclastic flows but not all volcanoes produce pyroclastic flows, only Mt. St. Helens type volcanoes usually composed of andesite. Kilauea for example does not produce pyroclastic flows because it is composed of basalt, the lava flows out easily.

Does Lava flow faster from a violent volcano?

A violent volcanic eruption will produce pyroclastic flows, which are somewhat like avalanches of hot ash and rock, rather than lava flows. Pyroclastic flows are faster than any lava flow. When they erupt effusively, though, the lava is so viscous that it flows very slowly.

Is pahoehoe considered pyroclastic debris?

No. Pahoehoe is considered a lava flow. Pyroclastic debris consists of volcanic ash, pumice, and lapilli rather than lava flow material.

What are the similarities in a lava flow and a pyroclastic flow?

A lava flow is simply a flow of liquid rock down a slope that usually results from an effusive eruption. A pyroclastic flow is an avalanche-like flow of hot ash, rock and gas that moves down a volcano during an explosive eruption, The move much faster than lava flows and are far more dangerous.

Is block lava the same as pyroclastic flow?

No. Block lava is low-moving viscous lava, usually of andesitic or similar composition. A pyroclastic flow is a very fast-moving mixture of hot ash, rock and gas.
