Impact of Boiler Water Chemistry on Waterside Tube

2015-9-12·Impact of Boiler Water Chemistry on Waterside Tube Failures major carriers of potential problems who may have major role for the analysis of boiler tube failures. Failure can occur in all boiler areas: economizers, waterwalls, super-heaters (SH) and re-heaters (RH). Figure 1 shows simplified schematic of a coal

Unusual Failures Involving Copper Deposition in Boiler

2017-3-6·Unusual case histories are presented in which boiler tube failure mechanisms involved copper deposition on waterside surfaces. Three case histories on copper-induced liquid metal embrittlement (LME) are reviewed. For copper to cause LME of plain carbon steel boiler tubing, metal temperatures must exceed 871°C (1600°F).

Critical Analysis & Prevention of Boiler Pressure Parts

2019-1-18·Boiler pressure parts failures are the leading cause of steam plant non-reliability. A tube failure may cause a forced outage, usually at the most inappropriate time, resulting lost production and lost revenue. But the tubes dont just fail suddenly. In 99.99% cases, an imminent tube failure would start giving indication long before it happens.

Short-Term High Temperature Failures

If the tube-metal temperature should rise to a temperature of around 1300 o F, the hoop stress would be equal to or slightly greater than the tensile strength at 1300 o F, and failure would occur in a few minutes. The balance between heat flow and fluid flow can be upset
