Coking refers to a refining process by which the denser, heavier products of the distillation process are converted to lighter products such as cat feed and naphtha, and petroleum coke, a solid, coal -like fuel.

The coking unit, or coker heats hydrocarbons to near 800 degrees Fahrenheit, at which temperature all the lighter products vaporize, and the coke solidifies in a large coke drum , from which it is removed by means of high-pressure jets of water.

Coking process includes: delayed coking, flexicoking, and fluid coking
