    The ExxonMobil website has lots info in their technology section since they are ones that hold patent on it. Like atctnc cat said google will turn up lot their pdf’s – and if it doesn’t give me email & I will send some to you. Let me know what your after & I’ll pick one with most info. (most recent were XOM at fuels conference & Prauge tech conference in EU. XOM also puts out fall/Summer PQT tech review pdf with articles on process. All cokers operate as carbon rejection units.

    Basically the delayed cokers (needle, fuel, sponge/anode) are all batch coking process while Fluid & Flexicokers are continuous process. Fluid & Flexicokers use re-circulated coke particles as catalyst / nucleation site for fluid coke formation and more of the coke is consumed in process to supply heat – almost completely in case flexicoker which is sort of an integration of fluid coker & gasification unit.

    There have been 18 fluid & flexicokers put in, 14 are still operating – 5 are Flexicokers & 7 are refinery fluid cokers & 2 are upgrader fluid cokers (3rd one has been added now @ Syncrude). ExxonMobil has Flexicoker at Baytown, Rotterdam & Lugi hybrid type at Ingolstadt that was shutdown (Apr04). ExxonMobil has Fluid cokers at Sarnia & Billings. The ones I know of shutdown were at Purvis ,Bakersfield & Detroit (MAP?) refineries. There may be one shutdown in Montreal? (and there was flexicoker pilot plant at Baytown shutdown in 1976).
