API Plan 62 Quench from External Source
API Plan 62 delivers an external quench fluid to the atmospheric side of the seal. A typical application in a refinery is the prevention of coking on seal faces in hot hydrocarbon service by employing a steam quench. Nitrogen or clean water may also be used to quench or cool and clean the atmospheric side of the seal.
- Prevents the formation of, or clears, solids from the atmospheric side of the seal faces
