This somehow came to me. I worked on a FCC that had structured packing. It needed to be changed every T/A for us. Where we dealt with cat / coke fines from reactor, the Coker deals with coke fines only. Unfortunately, coke is the problem when dealing with packing. We could not clean out the coke which then had to kept wet. Easier to just replace. I witnessed 2 fires when packing was first introduced and was “cleaned”. As far as the 316L and 410, you should use a metallurgist to answer that question.
