Failure investigation of super heater tubes of coal

Failure of super heater tube of boiler is the major concern of forced outages at coal fired thermal power plant. Flue gas passes over super heater tubes leading to damage over the time of operation and termed as fireside damage/corrosion. Again the extent of damage is dependent on quality of coal, materials used, operation and maintenance.

Remaining Creep Life Assessment of Service

The demand of remaining life assessment of the boilers arises from technical, economic, and legal reasons. Creep is major damage mechanism of primary superheat tube boiler during prolong operation at high temperature and pressure in a water tube boiler. This paper presents the calculation method for the remaining life assessment due to creep damage.

Alternative water-tube boiler layouts. The following layouts work on the same principles as other water-tube boilers, and are available with capacities from 5 000 kg/h to 180 000 kg/h. Longitudinal drum boiler. The longitudinal drum boiler was the original type of water-tube boiler that operated on the thermo-siphon principle (see Figure 3.3.5).

Tube Failures in High Pressure Boilers

There are twenty-two primary reasons for tube failures in a boiler, which can be classified under six major groups. They can be analyzed and corrective and preventive action can taken. Good operating and maintenance practice reduces tube failures. Tube failures during the initial operation period, the normal operation period, and after ten to fifteen years operation show different trends.
