Conference: Rotterdam 2019

Lessons learned from a recent startup of a delayed coker unit as to the proper installation, mounting and design of radiometric level solutions. At recent startup of a delayed coker unit, a lot of time and money was spent to correct issues that could have been prevented with proper design. Some issues were as follows:

  • Where to mount the radioactive sources on the drum?
  • Prevent radiological safety issues.
  • How to prevent alignment issue and prevent erroneous readings?
  • How to ensure proper operation of the level system?
