Webinar • July 12, 2023 • 10 am CST • REGISTER

Presented by Evan Hyde, Delayed Coking SME and Owner of 

In the realm of delayed coking, a diverse range of methods are available for transferring coke from the drum to the outside battery limits (OSBL). Each approach carries its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and it is crucial to thoroughly examine these options to ensure informed decision-making.

During our upcoming webinar, we will delve into an extensive review of these various methods. We recognize that the choice of coke transportation method is often influenced by the original design philosophy of the coker, making future changes or retrofits costly and difficult to justify. This consideration underscores the importance of selecting the most suitable method from the outset, aligning with your operational requirements and constraints.

As we explore different techniques, we will also examine how the oldest cokers worldwide have adopted inventive systems derived from other industries. This creative adaptation showcases the industry’s resourcefulness and highlights the potential for innovative solutions beyond the conventional scope.

For producers of premium coke, such as anode or needle coke, it is crucial to exercise special care during handling to maximize the value and quality of the final calcined coke product. We will emphasize the importance of implementing appropriate measures and best practices to ensure optimal handling throughout the transportation process.

On the other hand, for those focused on the production of fuel coke, especially in high feed CCR, efficiency and speed are of paramount importance. We will explore methods that prioritize swift and efficient transfer, ensuring that the production volume is managed effectively to meet market demands.

Through our webinar, we aim to provide valuable insights and practical guidance on the selection of the most appropriate coke transportation method for your specific circumstances. By evaluating the pros and cons of each option and considering factors such as coke quality, efficiency, and operational requirements, we will empower you to make informed decisions that drive success and enhance your overall coking operations.
