We have run our Delayed Coker unit for 543 & 531 days respectively for two consecutive terms without online spalling or steam air decoking of our heater.The run length of the heater depends on many things e.g.  feed stock quality, severity of process, quality of firing in the heater & number of  unit interruptions taken place. The run length can be maximized by close monitoring of process parameters, good heater operation with uniform & proper firing of burners and prompt tackling of emergencies which may result in heater / unit interruption.
