Profitable Coke Production Using Differential Weighing

Dec 11 2007

Coke is one of the most profitable products for the petrochemical industry as it is an indispensable material for steel manufacturers. Coke is the residual material after crude oil has been vacuum distilled within the process of oil refinery. The petrochemical industry measures this residue for moisture content which is essential to be profitable in coke production. Learn more about how the XP balance from Mettler Toledo is used to guarantee the quality of coke.

Faster results with differential weighing
To determine the moisture content of coke, many companies in the petrochemical industry use differential weighing together with a drying oven. The precision balance plays an important role in this process as coke is not very homogenous and the sample amount per measurement is relatively high, sometimes up to several kilograms. The newly built-in differential weighing application of the Mettler Toledo Excellence precision balance offers the perfect solution for measuring this moisture loss. Although the balance is used in sticky and oily environments its metal housing is robust and its flat surfaces are extremely easy to clean and prevent down time.

Maximum productivity and security
The differential weighing application of the XP precision balance assists the process by measuring a high number of high capacity samples simultaneously:
A maximum series of 99 can be repeatedly measured with the differential weighing application including measurements of up to 500 samples in each series. It’s quick stabilization speeds up the weighing process. The XP balance’s easy-to-use touchscreen guides the user through each step of differential weighing such as taring, initial weighing and back weighing after drying for all the samples. Furthermore, the software calculates the loss of each sample weight and determines the moisture content automatically. These results can then be readily and easily printed on demand.
