We have had similar experiences in the past. Determining suspect feeds and weeding them out may not be the cheapest either. We ended up welding low pitch clips to the ID of the cone 2-3″ in length approximately 18″ up from the bottom head flange face. No science to the spacing, the clips serve as a stop mechanism by not allowing coke to slide down the cone wall.
