Savage understands the importance a Delayed Coker Unit can play in refinery production. Savage performs coke cutting and handling services for a variety of refiners and licensor units, optimizing their costs by focusing on safety and reliability. They will present best practices for coke drum handover and cutting, and lessons learned from interfacing with operations in a live unit. The first focus will be on safely isolating the coke and transferring it to decoking specialist and maintenance teams. The second focus will be on performance metrics for coke cutting that can be used to improve cycle time and increase reliability.
