Coke is the solid residue created when oil undergoes severe oxidative and thermal breakdown at extreme engine temperatures. The higher the temperature, the harder, blacker and more brittle the coke/deposit residue. Did you know that severe coking can cause aircraft turn-back, lost revenue-generating hours, in-flight shutdowns and impeded engine performance?
Coking classifications include:
- Thin film
