Model and Imitation of the Cycle Temperature Fields and Deformations of Coke Drum
When the operating process of delay coking is cyclically changing from 25°C to 500°C, it would usually induce the effect of heat treatment on the shell of coke drum. After a special model of the kinetic medium climbing along the inside-wall of the coke drum at a steady rate set up, the resulting two-dimensional kinetic temperature field of shell in radial and axial directions has been calculated and analyzed by FEM. The relation between the material physical property of the shell and its temperature has been considered. The results show that the radial temperature difference or the axial temperature difference caused by the cooling water is more than that caused by the hot oil. The maximum temperature difference between the inside-wall and the outside-wall is 40°C below the medium level, 30mm by the hot oil and 60 °C or 25 mm by the cooling water. The circumferential uneven temperature field, location and concave/convex or incline/bend of body have been surveyed and analyzed. The lat-circle deformation of transverse section has been discussed.
