Panel Coker

As the fluid flows down the surface of the panel, a wetting pattern emerges based on the characteristics of the fluid. Wetting is an important feature to a fluid’s ability to create a tribological film. A fluid with good wetting has been observed to create a wide inverted parabola. High performance fluids with excellent thermo-oxidative stability and good wetting will typically result in an open pattern with faint or low deposits outlining the inverted parabola. At high temperatures, a lack of thermo-oxidative stability or wetting will cause the pattern to close at the bottom of the panel leading to coke build-up.

The pictures show the coking pattern of the fluid displayed an increased opening at the bottom of the panel in addition to a lower 3-dimensional build of the solids along the periphery of the wetted flow route. The lower build of coke suggested both improved thermo-oxidative stability and solubilization of pre-formed and/or formed deposits.
