FTM 3462 Coker Panel
Test specimens (called coker panels) used for the FTM 3462 Coking Tendency of Oil test. The test measures the tendency of oils to form coke deposits on metal surfaces at high temperatures. Metaspec coker panels are compatible with test instruments from Koehler, Falex, and others. Coker panels can be made from a range of alloys, including aluminum, steel, stainless steel, and cast iron. The test specimen dimensions and surface finish can vary depending on the final application or test modifications. Each coker panel has holes drilled into the edge for use with thermocouples to monitor temperatures during testing.
