Characteristics of Water-Side Deposits in Boiler Tubes

2018-2-2 · Another problem associated with water chemistry and water-side deposits is the corro- sion of the tube. A common corrosion problem is the pitting of tubes due to the ingress of oxygen into the boiler water. The oxygen tends to attack welds and backing rings preferen- tially and can lead to eventual failure. In addition there are two major types

Cause of Boiler Tube Failures - Chicago Tube & Iron

Clean ash, soot and other products of combustion from fireside tube and tube sheet surfaces immediately after shutdown. Flush these surfaces completely with water to dissolve, dilute and remove any remaining sulfur compounds. Dry by blowing air through the boiler. All cleaned surfaces should be coated with a good grade of light oil to prevent rust.

Studies on the Failure of Economizer Tubes Involving Acid

2016-9-9 · Failure of economizer tube of a high pressure boiler of a dual purpose power/water cogeneration plant was reported [8]. The failure was observed in the form of rupturing of one tube and a manhole (pin hole) in another tube. The cause of the failure of the economizer tube was attributed to be H. 2. SO. 4 – dew-point corrosion.

Difference between Fire Tube Boiler and Water Tube

The main difference between fire tube and water tube is that in fire tube boiler the flue gases flow in the tubes and water flows from the shell and in water tube boiler, water flows from the tubes and the flue gases from the shell or passes over the tubes. This is the key difference between these boilers.

Are Modular Water Tube Boilers Worth The

2019-8-3 · The risk of a serious failure or explosion is limited in water tube boilers because they use roughly 10% of the water that's needed in fire tube boilers. Also, any issue with a water tube boiler is usually limited to a particular tube, not the entire boiler. In fact, Miura's modular boilers have never experienced a serious explosion in the

Steam Boiler Tube Failure by Caustic Gouging | Chardon

Overheating of a properly rolled tube can cause caustic gouging. Though caustic gouging is more common in a water tube boiler, fire tube boilers can sustain the same type of attack. Controlling the amount of caustic in boiler water can also help control this type of corrosion. The amount of caustic in a boiler can be adjusted by controlling the
