Products are petroleum coke, gas oils, and lighter petroleum stocks. Over the years, as more knowledge was learned about thermal cracking , it was found that high temperatures and very high velocities postpone the formation of coke until the pitch gets from the furnace tubes to a large surge tank.

Coker - Process Engineering Associates, LLC.
Petroleum coke that solidifies in the drum The offline coke drum is steamed, vented, and partially cooled prior to the drum being opened to the atmosphere. After this drum is open, the solid petroleum coke is cut from the drum using high pressure water.
Lecture 4 Thermal Cracking, Visbreaking and Delayed Coking
Delayed coking consists of thermal cracking of heavy residue in empty drum where deposition of coke takes place. The product yield and quality depends on the typed feedstock processed. Typical delayed coking consists of a furnace to preheat the feed, coking

Delayed Coker - Other Processes For Producing …
Famous quotes containing the words coke, processes and/or producing: “ One of the oddest episodes I remeer was an occasion in which [Clarence] Thomas was drinking a Coke in his office, he got up from the table, at which we were working, went over to his desk to get the Coke, looked at the can and asked, “Who has put pubic hair on my coke?”
Thermal Mechanical Fatigue of Coke Drum Materials - …
Significant temperature variation during the delayed coking process causes damage in coke drums in the form of bulging and cracking. There were some studies on the fatigue life estimation for the coke drums, but most of them were based on strain-fatigue life curves at constant temperatures which do not consider simultaneous cyclic temperature and mechanical loading conditions.
Coker Units - MEI
Cokers are one of two types, either fluid cokers or delayed cokers. Both operate at pressures slightly higher than atmospheric and at temperatures greater than 900 o F. Under these conditions, the resid with be thermally cracked into products such as gas oil, naphtha, and other distillates, and leaves behind the solids commonly referred to as Petroleum Coke.
Coking Project Manager and Coker Expert – CokerDNA
A Delayed Coker or Delayed Coking Unit (also called a DCU or Coker) is a refinery unit employed to process the heaviest components of crude oil. The Coker cracks (converts) the asphalt-like feedstock to a coination of products for further processing to gasoline and diesel feedstock, a coal-like material called petroleum coke, plus light gas and byproducts.
Petroleum coke calcining Unit - КазМунайГаз
Coke calcining is carried out in the drum rotating furnace with length 59,5 m long, diameter 3,6m.,established at an angle of 4,17 0. Stay time (1-1,5 hours) is defined by the speed of rotation of the drum (0,6-1,2 rpm).
Causes of shorter delayed coker heater runs reported …
2020/8/18· The delayed coking process will play an increasingly important role in the modern refinery, because of its ability to convert heavy vacuum residues to distillates and petroleum coke. The flexibility inherent in delayed coking permits refiners to process a wide variety of crude oils, including those containing heavy, high-sulfur resides.
Delayed coker design and project execution
Delayed cokers are inherently flexible due to the batch, cyclic nature of the coke drum operation and a design that must accommodate the swings associated with the coking/decoking cycle of each drum.
The Art of Delayed Coking
The one feature that differentiates a Delayed Coker from all (or at least most) other refinery operations is the handling of a solid product: petroleum coke. Although solids handling often causes problems in equipment reliability and environmental aspects, there are measures that can be taken to optimize these systems and achieve safe and reliable operation.
United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit
1. In a process for producing delayed petroleum coke, wherein a liquid hydrocarbon feed stream is introduced into a delayed coking vessel under delayed coking conditions and the coke produced is quenched, the improvement comprising:
A Predictive Kinetic Model for Delayed Coking: …
The reaction scheme contains 11 lumped species, including two middle fractions, naphtha, gas, and coke in addition to the above six lumps for residua. It is shown that these kinetic parameters are all invariant with respect to residue compositions and therefore this model is able to predict yields of delayed coking products for a wide variety of ranges of charge stock and operating conditions

Decoking operations means the sequence of steps conducted at the end of the delayed coking unit''s cooling cycle to open the coke drum to the atmosphere in order to remove coke from the coke drum. Decoking operations begin at the end of the cooling cycle when steam released from the coke drum is no longer discharged via the unit''s blowdown system but instead is vented directly to the atmosphere.
Re: Photo: Heavy Duty Milwaukee Road Flat Car 601051
It looks like a coke drum. In a delayed coker, which produces petroleum coke, the reaction occurs in the heater and on the way to the drum, where the coke settles out and the light hydrocarbon vapors go out the top. Here, top is to the left as the drum is positioned
