- Are you starting up or commissioning a new grassroots delayed coker?
- The cost to design, purchase, and build that unit is likely to exceeded $1 Billion USD.
- How many people at your plant have actually operated at delayed coker?
- Not very many refineries have more than 1 delayed coker so unless you hired all experienced people from your competition, most of the plant staff are learning on the fly.
The Coking.com team of experts has experience operating all types of licensor designs and equipment manufacturers.
Getting outside support from third party, industry experts can prevent costly and time consuming errors from occurring. Most coker people know the heater coil outlet temperature (COT) should be around 920F (493C). During a recent new unit startup, the vendor and licensor team got confused and insisted the coke drum inlet temperature be the typical COT. The problems that resulted from running the heater and transfer line that hot were significant. Participation of a independent resource who can advocate for the end-user (the refiner) is easily justifiable with an industry rife with similar stories. Coking.com is your resource.
