Failure analysis of primary waste heat boiler tube in …

1/2/2021 · Abstract. The primary Waste Heat Boiler (WHB) in an ammonia plant experienced cap leaking and the outer tube rupture after ten months since the last repair and replacement (total retubing). The leaking cap and the outer tube materials are low carbon steel SA-204 Gr. B and SA-209 Gr. T1a. The inappropriate vertical part of the leaked cap, which

Finding the Root Cause of Boiler Tube Failures

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. Tube metal

Water Handbook - Preboiler & Industrial Boiler Corrosion …

Hydrogen embrittlement of mild steel boiler tubing occurs in high-pressure boilers when atomic hydrogen forms at the boiler tube surface as a result of corrosion. Hydrogen permeates the tube metal, where it can react with iron carbides to form methane gas, or with other hydrogen atoms to form hydrogen gas.
