Anyone have any news about this New Desalter breaker from GE & whether it is just new marketing hype or if it could have big improvement on solids & salts removal? 
 
I believe Desalters have big impact on coker operations thru cleaning up crude/residual component and also in amount rag layer gets routed thru slop oil traps and back to coker charge. None of it very good for specialty fuel coke and especially not anode cokes – which would come from Lt – Med Crudes this targets. 
 
Once did study tracking down higher level of Mid-Continent petcokes iron/silicon ect levels & lot was from rust & sand picked up from old crude lines & slop oil recycle loops from desalter emulsion/rag layer and daffy unit sludge both are crammed back in coker avoid disposal problems.
