RE: Asphaltene content for DCU feed

Mr. charlie,
 
I would like to know from you, what would be the effect of Asphaltene on the foam formation inside the coke drum.
 
1) Does it increase the foam ?
2) If so , does increasing the COT suppresses the foam?
 
I do understand that all of this depends on the chemistry which is playing inside the drum. I would be happy if you elaborate more on this.
 
Thanks
