Stress-Assisted Corrosion in Boiler Tubes (Technical

2019-9-10 · Stress assisted corrosion (SAC) of carbon steel boiler tubes is one of the major causes of waterside failure in industrial boilers. SAC is a major concern for kraft recovery boilers in the pulp and paper industry as any water leak into the furnace can cause a smelt-water explosion in the boiler.

Stress and integrity analysis of steam superheater

2002-9-2 · The REDUC boiler is model VU-60, nominal charge 365 ton/h of steam, design pressure 119 kgf/cm 2 and operating pressure 104 kgf/cm 2. The strength of a boiler tube depends on the level of stress as well as on temperature when the tube metal temperatures are in the creep range.

A Review of the Common Causes of Boiler Failure in the

2017-9-21 · somewhere between 8% and 12% of fire tube boilers in the UK have been found to be affected. The reverse fillet welds of the main tube to shell and furnace tube to tube sheet are the most common places of attack in fire tube boilers and the problem is often described as toe cracking. Failure is initiated at the surface in a high stress area.

Recent Experience in Boiler Header Tube Nipple Failures

A boiler tube nipple to header junction is sub- jected to temperature excursions due to plant events such as load change, startup and shutdown. A typical daily two-shift mode of operation involves shutting the boiler off overnight, for a six to eight

How to Destroy a Boiler -- Part 1

Consequently, the bottom of the drum will become longer than the top, causing the drum to warp. This phenomenon called "drum humping" can lead to stress fractures of the generating tubes between the steam and mud drums. Refractory damage is the most prevalent damage associated with a quick warm-up of a boiler from a cold start.

Creep Damage Assessment Procedure for Weldment

It was found from observation of creep damage interrupted specimens that initiation of creep voids concentrated at the mid-thickness region rather than the surface. It was suggested that triaxial stress states caused acceleration of creep damage evolution in the heat affected zone resulting in internal failure of the tube specimens.

2019-10-24 · 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.
