RE: fire in the pit

I have seen a number of pit fires. The problem we had was “hot” spots in the coke bed. Our shot coke at times did not allow the quench water to cool all of the coke therefore we had hot spots that were hot enough that when they were removed from the drum, some of the coke was still hot enough to flair back up while in the pit.
