    Any established data on Naptha Injection for Impeller cleaning, frequency of wheel wash and problems encountered during such cleaning operations? Do you have wet gas compressors with on-line naptha injection installed? How do you estimate the Naptha requirement; is there any safety hazard (fire hazard) associated with this injection? 
    Experts advise is requested.

    hi there,
    our coker is installing a naphtha wash injection facility to the second stage of the wet gas compressor. We are using centrifugal compressor from MHI. MHI has advised the liquid rate to be at 1wt % of the gas rate.

    Good morning,
    is there any general procedure available for cleaning the coke compressor without stopping it?
    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,
