Finding the Root Cause of Boiler Tube Failures

Causes: Short-term overheat failures are most common during boiler start-up. Failures result when the tube metal temperature is extremely elevated from a lack of cooling steam or water flow. A typical example is when superheater tubes have not cleared of condensation during boiler start-up, obstructing steam flow.

Short-Term High Temperature Failures - National Board of Boiler …

Boiler operational problems that can lead to these short-term high-temperature failures include, among others: Flame impingement from misaligned or worn burners that leads to the formation of a steam blanket, as the local heat flux is too great for the fluid flow through the tube. Blockage of a superheater tube with condensate or foreign

Steel Tube Failures In Industrial Boilers Oil Flow

Fire tube or "fire in tube" boilers; contain long steel tubes through which the hot gasses from a furnace pass and around which the water to be converted to steam circulates. (Refer Figure 2.2). Fire tube boilers, typically have a lower initial cost, are more fuel efficient and easier to operate, but they are limited generally to capacities of 25 tons/hr and pressures of 17.5 kg/cm 2 .

Water Handbook - Boiler System Failures | SUEZ

Straight tube, shell-and-tube waste heat boilers frequently develop tube and tube sheet failures due to the imposition of unequal stresses. A primary cause of this is the uneven distribution of hot gases across the face of the tube sheet. The tubes involved tend to come loose, creating leakage problems.
