Tube Temperature Distribution in Water Tube Boiler- A

2017-9-29 · Water tube boilers can operate at higher pressures than fire tube boilers. The flow of steam and water within a water tube boiler is called circulation. This circulation is critical in preventing tubes from overheating. When tubes are overheated, metal softens, weakens and may eventually rupture. In a simple water tube circuit, bubbles of

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 temperatures reach combustion gas temperatures of 1600F (870C) or greater which lead to tube
