Conference: Galveston 2018

One of the common coke drum failures is the breakage of anchor bolts that hold drums to the concrete support structure. A new patented anchoring system was recently developed to mitigate this failure mode. This presentation reports on the first implementation in industry of this new anchoring system including history of old bolts failure, design basis, and implementation considerations.
