Plant Engineering | Maintaining boiler safety

Low-water trips protect boiler pressure parts by shutting down the fuel combustion process, eliminating high temperatures in the furnace when the natural circulation cooling process is interrupted. Control of the boiler drum level is sophisticated, and even the best-tuned control systems cannot always prevent a low-water condition.

Boiler Systems | ERK Energy Systems

Overview of our five main boiler-systems. Corner Tube Boilers. The ERK (corner tube) Boiler is a modern, natural-circulation, single drum water tube boiler. The main characteristics are a very active water circulation, rapid load change capability, light-weight construction and self-supporting structure. Fire Tube Boilers.

Failure investigation of water wall tubes in a drum boiler

May 04, 2009 · Classification of tube failures. Tube failures are classified as in-service failures in boilers. These failures can be grouped under six major causes: Stress rupture; Fatigue; Water side corrosion; Erosion; Fire side corrosion (Called also as High temperature Corrosion) Lack of quality control. These lead to twenty-two primary causes that can cause a tube failure in a high pressure boiler

Natural Circulation in Boilers - nawabi.de

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 failure.

Water-tube boiler sections. The energy from the heat source may be extracted as either radiant or convection and conduction. The furnace or radiant section. This is an open area accommodating the flame(s) from the burner(s). If the flames were allowed to come into contact with the boiler tubes, serious erosion and finally tube failure would occur.

Forced circulation boiler - Wikipedia

A forced circulation boiler is a boiler where a pump is used to circulate water inside the boiler. This differs from a natural circulation boiler which relies on current density to circulate water inside the boiler. In some forced circulation boilers, the water is circulated twenty times the rate of evaporation.

Conditions: Furnace tube blistering & failures due to circulation defect. A 600,000 [lbm/hr] high pressure pulverized coal boiler operating at a steelworks experienced persistent furnace wall tube blistering within 6 months of being first commissioned. After 3 months some of the blistered tubes began to fail causing frequent forced plant outages and expensive production losses.
