Metallurgical Technologies, Inc. examined a failed superheater tube from XXXXXX X XXX Boiler #7. The ASME SA-213 Grade T11 tube had been in service for 6 to 8 years until failure. The mode of failure was short-term stress rupture due to significant overheating.
The boiler tubes are under high pressure and/or high-temperature conditions. They are subject to potential degradation by a variety of mechanical and thermal stresses and environmental attack on both the fluid and fireside. Mechanical components can fail due to creep, fatigue, erosion, and corrosion
In most industrial water tube boilers the superheater is placed where flue gases make their turn from the radiant to the convection section of the boiler. There are three types of super heaters convection, radiant and conv-radient super heaters.

Superheater and reheater 2.25Cr–1Mo steel boiler tubes from a thermal power plant after 17 year of service at nominally 540°C and 40MPa were studied to predict their remnant life.
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. Components typically affected : Furnace wall tubes, superheaters, reheaters.

We will provide materials tubing and attachments from our inventory if possibly or get it directly from a tube mill..
A convection superheater is located in the convective zone of the furnace usually ahead of economizer ( in the path of the hot flue gases). These are also called primary superheaters. A separately fired superheater is a superheater that is placed outside the main boiler, which has its own separate combustion system.
Superheater Inspection in Marine Boilers Large marine water tube boilers used to raise high pressure, superheated steam to power the ships main and auxiliary steam turbines are becoming a rarity and are being replaced by the much more efficient modern two-stroke marine diesel engines.
Superheaters and Reheaters Superheaters are one of the most important accessories of boiler that improves the thermal efficiency. In super heaters there should not be any fins as it increases the thermal stresses and carful should be taken when choosing the super-heater material that is stand for high temp and corrosion resistance. Super-heater
superheater until the boiler is up to operating pressure and all superheater tubes are clear of any water which may have accumulated during the downtime. Overheating conditions may
SA-192/SA-192M Seamless Carbon Steel Boiler Tubes for High-Pressure Service. SA-210/SA-210M Seamless Medium-Carbon Steel Boiler and Superheater Tubes. The high pressure boiler tubes are often working in the condition with high pressure, high temperature and the interaction of the high temperature flue gas and vapor, which may lead to oxidation
IST Boiler is a solutions driven company that manufactures and supplies boiler tubes, as well as supplying all parts in and around boilers. Superheater Sections
Mar 21, 2018 · In case of water tube boilers, hot gases will provide the required temperature to produce superheated steam and superheater may be an additional part of the furnace area. In other cases, separately fired superheater may be required because gas turbine produced gases are relatively cool.
Dec 24, 2017 · Horizontal type superheater :-In horizontally type superheater arranged across the boiler. This type of superheater is self draining which ia an advantage during lighting up and for this reason they are now favoured by designer for the primary section superheaters . The platen is a plane surface receiving heat from both side .
Nov 22, 2019 · Boiler superheaters can be found in three varieties: radiant superheaters, convection superheaters and separately fired superheaters. Radiant superheaters are located directly within the combustion chamber of the boiler itself. This arrangement allows for the burner from the boiler to heat both the boiler tubing and the superheater tubes, making radiant superheaters highly effective devices.
To reduce boiler problems at cycling units originally designed for baseload operation, Foster Wheeler proposes use of a higher chromium alloy material for headers and tubes. Using a higher chromium
Boiler tubes must be able to endure extremely high temperatures, pressures, and potentially wide fluctuations in demand depending on the application. Boiler re-tubing and tube replacement can extend the life of the boiler, and saves the tubes from deteriorating due to scale build up and cracking.
Whatever the type of fuel being fired, all high pressure boilers are bound to have a tube failure during the course of their working life. Did you know that a single tube failure in a 500 MW boiler requiring four days of repair work can result in a loss of more than $1,000,000 apart from the generation loss?
Superheater-tube failure is listed among the major causes of a fossil-fuel-fired boiler outage. Therefore, it is necessary not only to identify and repair it in the case of failure but also to eliminate the root cause of this problem.

Soluble-salt deposits may form at a superheater tube inlet as a result of excessive entrainment of boiler water solids with the steam. This can result in restricted flow. However, overheating and direct oxidation failures may occur in areas distinctly removed from the blockage, such as the bottom loops or the hottest areas of the superheater tubes.
Jul 29, 2016 · Additionally, the firing rate, actual location of the superheater in the boiler, the inner and outer surface cleanliness and condition of the superheater tubes, and possible maladjustment of the burner equipment causing ‘flaming through’ screen tubes, can all influence the likelihood of severe overheating of these tubes.
THEORY AND EXPERIENCE ON CORROSION OF WATERWALL AND SUPERHEATER TUBES OF WASTE-TO-ENERGY FACILITIES EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Corrosion of boiler tubes remains an operational and economic constraint in waste-to-energy (WTE) facilities. Despite the long experience of the WTE industry in reducing
Superheaters Coils are the most critical Boiler Component of the modern day Thermal Power Plant and are subject to very high metal temperatures. In fact the capacity of the Superheater to work without failure at higher Temperatures is what determines the boilers Capacity and it effects improvement in economy by reducing Steam Consumption of the
Superheater tube is one of parts in steam boiler. Superheater is used to heat saturated steam from steam drum to be superheated steam. Failure in superheater tubes is rarely caused by corrosion except the condition of steam boiler is being maintaining or stands by in long term.
On single-furnace boilers, a lane more than 1 1/2 inches wide may allow overheating of the superheater and of the superheater supports. If a large lane (1 1/2 tubes wide or wider) exists near the superheater outlet header end of the boiler, the married tubes that caused such a large lane should be renewed.
High-pressure boiler tube is mainly used to manufacture high-pressure and high pressure boiler superheater tubes, reheater tubes, windpipe, the main steam pipe.
•In order to remove the condensate from the tubes the boiler can be “burped” by manipulating the superheater relief valve. •On some recovery boilers, especially older boilers with very low pressure drop over the superheater, this clearing of tubes can take many hours.
Furnace Corrosion Fundamentals Fireside corrosion in the superheaters and reheaters of coal-fired units is known as coal ash corrosion, in oil-fired units as oil ash corrosion, and in refuse-fired
The corrosion of superheaters and reheaters in fossil fired boilers can be related to both fire and steam side conditions. Oil fueled boilers exhibit ash corrosion by low melting point slags of vanadium, sodium, and sulfur oxides, coal fired boilers by complex sulfates. In both cases, increasing tube metal temperature exacer- bates corrosion rates.
