Finding the Root Cause of Boiler Tube Failures

Identifying and correcting the root cause of tube failures is essential to help lessen the chance of future problems. Symptoms: Intergranular micro-cracking.Loss of ductility or embrittlement of the tube material leading to brittle catastrophic rupture. Causes: Most commonly associated with excessive deposition on ID tube surfaces, coupled with a boiler water low pH excursion.

Automatic boiler tube leak detection with deep

Boiler tubes in power plants develop defects including creep and thermal fatigue damage that can lead to fluid leakage over the operation period. Such leakage is the main cause of outages and power generation losses in thermal power plants. Therefore, early detection of leaks in boiler tubes is necessary to avoid more than 60% of boiler outages. To monitor and detect tube leaks in real-time
