Petroleum Coke is a carbon rich solid by-product of crude oil refinery process. ‘Petcoke’ for short, is a substance that can be hard or relatively soft and has a porous texture with a likeness to coal. It is produced from both fluid and delayed coking operation and is often utilised as a low-grade fuel, cement and in the production of aluminium and steel.
Whilst Petcoke can be of some value, the build-up of the substance can occur on critical equipment as a scale and can be detrimental to the overall production process.
At SEM, we have utilised our expertise to develop a pioneering solution, that can effectively remediate the loss of efficiency in the refinery process, whilst ensuring cost-effectiveness and maintained safety at all times.
