This happens all the time? If not, and has been happening in recent days, the most likely causes are poorly cut end of the drum,  cutting in lateral mode several times up and down the drum  until you dont see black water coming out of the drumDo you have a procedure to cut or clean the top of the dome of the drum?   in some units during the time it accumulates a certain amount of coke over  the coke level cap (dome of the drum) and eventually fall during the process and for that reason in some units every 6 months or every year this area is cleaned by a special procedure
