Good day Marc,
The coker wet gas compressors I have experience had naphtha injection via a nozzle in the suction pipe.
A few things need to be checked before doing the operation. How long has the compressor been running? Has it loss efficiency? How much ? Is the piping clean ?

Good morning,
is there any general procedure available for cleaning the coke compressor without stopping it? We have a new compressor with a manual system of naphta injection in each impeller.
I would like to know any useful information to proceed, because it is the first time I am facing it.
Thank you for your support,
