SiO 2 /S coating was prepared on the surface of HP40 specimen with different thicknesses of coke. The influence of coke on the coating deposition and thermal shock property was studied. Scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffractometry and X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy were used for microstructure and microchemical analysis. The morphologies of cokes and SiO 2 /S coatings were investigated. The results show that the oxide layer of HP40 specimen formed at 850˚C for 2 hour is porous and

The coking rate initially is high, then decreases with increasing cracking time, and finally reaches a stable value after 20 minutes. The diameter of coke changes from 1μm to 0.2μm, and then is about 0.5μm. The thickness of the coke layer changes from 0.56μm to 2.58μm. The thickness of coke layer has an important influence on the morphology and thermal shock property of the on-line SiO 2 /S coating. With increasing the thickness of the coke layer, the coating becomes rough and incompact. When the thickness of the coke layer is 0.56μm, the coating can bear 13 thermal shock tests. And the coating is out of service when the coke layer is 2.58μm. It is suggested that a thorough decoking should be carried out to improve the adhesion between the on-line coating and the inner surface of the cracking tube.
