finding the root cause of boiler tube failures

Finding the Root Cause of Boiler Tube Failures

Components typically affected: This type of boiler corrosion fatigue is commonly found on furnace wall tubes of coal-fired once-through boiler designs, but has also occurred on tubes in drum-type boilers. Solutions: Reduce the ramp rates during start-up and shut-down to reduce the thermal stresses. Optimize sootblowing operations to minimize

Update: Benchmarking Boiler Tube Failures

Boiler tube failures continue to be the leading cause of downtime for steam power plants. The most recent benchmarking study seems to reflect the fact that smaller coal-fired plants tend to

Coal-Fired Boiler - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Coal-fired boilers are mainly operated at either subcritical or supercritical conditions. From a thermo-physics perspective, two phase mixtures of water and steam are replaced by a single supercritical fluid when the boiler pressure increases above the critical pressure of 22.12 MPa and the corresponding saturation temperature of 374 °C (Shen and Cheng, 2004).
