IN THIS APPLICATION BRIEF, YOU WILL DISCOVER
- The challenges facing refinery coker operators
- How Akselos’ engineering simulation technology can help overcome the obstacles
- The impact of Akselos’ engineering simulation technology
All cokers in oil refineries endure extreme operating conditions, leading to asset damage and failure. Replacing them is expensive and time-consuming, meaning that operators are looking for ways to extend the asset’s lifespan. Previously, it was impossible to analyse structural dynamics of entire coker units in high fidelity and near real-time.
Now, Akselos’ advanced engineering simulation technology can create a near real-time structural digital twin of the asset to understand its integrity behaviour to the highest level of detail. This physics simulation provides operators with a real-time visual representation informing them precisely which high-stress locations require inspection or potential repair.
