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?
