Our two newest cokers have accelerometers mounted in three locations which indicate when the drum has been cleaned to that level. Bently-Nevada also has a new system which involves usinf a temporary accelerometer mounted on the vapour line or top head which can detect when the bit is cutting coke and when it is simply hitting the drum. We are currently looking at adding the latter system to our existing cokers to aide the operators in this matter.
