Thank you for your input. So, if my understanding is correct there isn’t a real standard for determination of the green coke density. The only thing will remain to use a pycnometer, and to test the density of coke. Classic method for determine the solid matter with pycnometer.
I will make 20-30 density determination using this method on various piece of coke and I will make an average density for green coke that can be applied in our refinery.
The reason that I’m doing this is because I developed an automatic calculation for the coke mass and for be more accurate in my results I need two things:
1. A good measurement of the “empty of the coke drum”
2. A good density reference that will depend about the quality of the feed, parameters an other things like that.
@Charlie Randall, thank you for your post.Now I’m hoping to understand me why I need this sort of things.
All the best
