Better Delayed Coker Performance Through Smarter Insulation Design

Delayed coker units (DCU) are more sensitive to insulation performance than any other process unit in a refinery. In this webinar, John Williams discusses how the choice of thermal insulation in a DCU can impact:

  • Liquid yields and throughput
  • Feedline temperature drop and pigging frequency
  • Online insulation repairs

Originally Aired: September 23, 2020 in partnership with Refining Community
