Retubing & tube replacement for boilers of all sizes. IB&M specializes in the retubing of firetube boilers, watertube boilers, superheaters, pre-heaters, heat exchangers and other pressure vessels. Boiler tubes must be able to endure extremely high temperatures, pressures, and potentially wide fluctuations in demand depending on the application.
Please Note: Soot blowers do not clean the fireside of the boiler. They only remove scale and soot from the second pass tube plate and tube ends. Maintaining a scheduled cleaning program for boilers is essential to reduce fuel costs, to prevent blockage of the second pass tubes, which will cause overheating of the stoker and low steam pressures.
The examples of the fire tube boiler are: simple vertical boiler, Cochran boiler, Lancashire boiler, Cornish boiler, Locomotive boiler, Scotch marine boiler and Velcon boiler. (ii).

Residue that coats the tubes of a boiler will interfere with heat transfer and elevate the flue gas temperature. If incomplete combustion occurs, the resulting soot accumulates on the combustion side of the tubes. Similarly, poor water treatment practices can result in scale accumulation on the water side of the tubes.
What is Fire Tube Boiler: A boiler in which flames and hot gases produced during combustion pass through the tubes and water flowing outside the tube called fire tube boilers. Fire tube boiler is the most predominant boiler used for heating, commercial and industrial applications. These boilers are suitable for clean fuels such as oil and gas.
A tapered plug should only be used when it is in an application where the pressure of the boiler will be acting to drive the plug securely into the tube (i.e.: plugging of generating tubes in the drums of a water tube boiler). We've also removed tubes from service by capping with the use of a butt weld or socket weld cap sized to fit the tube.
as the position of the water and hot gases. In a fire tube boiler, hot gases are inside the tube and water is at outside the tube, while water tube boiler has water inside the tube and gases on the outside. Fire tube boilers produce lower rate of steam compared to water tube boilers. The focus for this will be on HRSG with water tube boilers.

Soot and corrosion from combustion can foul the fireside of boilers causing tube wall temperature to get so hot that the tube itself weakens and can rupture. Fireside fouling can be mechanically removed with rods and brushes, compressed air, bead blasting, or more with more advanced technology like motor-driven rotary brush cleaners.

How a Water Tube Boiler Works. One of the latest advances in steam production technology is the use of water tube boilers. This type of boiler is distinct from conventional boilers that use a fire tube system. Water tube boilers are more efficient than fire tube boilers, generating more steam but using less fuel.
Fatigue accounts for 80% of the failures investigated in fire tube boilers and 28% in water tube boilers. Significantly in the non-sugar, watertube section this rises to 36% but drops to 17% for sugar boilers. However despite its low incidence in the sugar industry, it is worth a close look at the
In Water Tube Boiler water will be heated inside the Boiler Tube and heat will pass around the Tubes. Generally, heat passes from the boiler Furnace or Combustion Chamber to around the Boiler Tube. There are some other components is present with the boiler like Economizer, Air Pre-Heater, Steam Drum, Feed Water Pump, Steam Re-Heater.
Large quantities of water trapped between the water drum and the boiler casing - as, for example, from a serious economizer leak - can produce general fireside grooving around the bottom of the rear generating tubes. An example of this general fireside circumferential grooving is shown in figure 12-9.

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.
The water tube boiler diagram is shown below, and these two drums are associated via two tubes such as downcomer and riser. At first, the water is supplied into the steam type drum with the help of a water pump. Whenever the fuel is burned, then hot gases will be generated that are permitted to supply in the shell part of the boiler.
Another problem associated with water chemistry and water-side deposits is the corro- sion of the tube. A common corrosion problem is the pitting of tubes due to the ingress of oxygen into the boiler water. The oxygen tends to attack welds and backing rings preferen- tially and can lead to eventual failure. In addition there are two major types
boiler thoroughly with a pressure hose. Use the hose on each individual tube including the superheater and economizer tubes. If possible, this washing should be done from the bottom up. 17. Check the fireside for any unusual conditions. 18. If the boiler is not to be put into immediate service, refer to the Bond Water Technologies Shutdown and
7) Minimum Boiler Tube Leakages 8) Steam Purity 3.1 Water Quality in Supercritical Boilers The water quality is very important for high pressure steam generators. For supercritical boilers its importance is much more due to following reasons: a) No boiler blow down or solid treatment which is used for maintaining boiler and steam purity.
Boilers designed for oil firing incorporate design parameters that allow for relatively trouble-free operation from a fireside standpoint. Combustion gas velocity, tube spacing, furnace gas exit temperature, and economizer configuration are adjusted to account for oil ash characteristics.

PITTING The concentration of oxygen in the water is the main cause for severe damage on the water side of boiler tubes by pitting. Water molecules go into the vapor phase at higher temperatures resulting in more water vapor in the air. Cold water holds more air. A deaerator can be used to heat the water with steam to remove oxygen.
