Volume XLIII.II: ASME Sec I & Sec VIII Fundamentals - Part

The improper warm-up of a steam boiler is one of the most severe hardships a boiler must endure. Going through the cycle of start-up, operation, and shutdown for any boiler creates higher equipment stresses and, consequently, much more maintenance-type issues than …

Finding the Root Cause of Boiler Tube Failures

May 27, 2006 · A number of industrial boilers, including in the pulp and paper industry, needed to replace their lower furnace tubes or decommission many recovery boilers due to stress-assisted corrosion (SAC) on the waterside of boiler tubes. More than half of the power and recovery boilers that have been inspected reveal SAC damage, which portends significant energy and economic impacts.

Symptoms: Aggressive localized boiler tube corrosion and loss of tube wall. Pits can act as stress-concentration sites which can be initiation points for stress-related corrosion mechanisms. Causes: Oxygen pitting occurs with the presence of excessive oxygen in boiler water. It can occur during operation as a result of in-leakage of air at pumps, or failure in operation of preboiler water treatment equipment.

How to Destroy a Boiler -- Part 1

Jun 10, 2020 · Thermal stress or thermal shock, also known as thermally induced stress cycling, occurs when your boiler undergoes a rapid change in temperature, such as when cold water flows into a hot boiler. The contrasting water temperatures cause the boiler's furnace to become a different temperature from that of its outer shell, which is the larger area that holds the water and steam.

PREVENTING THERMAL SHOCK - Thermal Tech: Boiler

The problem of thermally induced stress cycling (loosely referred to as thermal shock) has been apparent for many years, particularly in boilers installed in hot-water heating systems. The term "shock" suggests a sudden impact type failure, which in the vast majority of …

Stress-Assisted Corrosion in Boiler Tubes (Technical

The stress in a steam boiler shell can be calculated as. σ = P D / 2 t (1) where. σ = hoop stress (Pa, N/m2) P = boiler pressure (Pa, N/m2) D = diameter of boiler shell (m) t = thickness of boiler shell (m) Sponsored Links. Pipe Sizing - Sizing steam and condensate pipes - pressure loss, recommended velocity, capacity and more.

Thermally induced cyclic stresses are due to the resistance of the boiler structure to the movement caused by the thermal expansions and contractions within the boiler. The stresses occur during every firing cycle of the burner, a cycle defined as burner on, burner off. Failures of this type appear as leaks from sectional cracking.
