Water Handbook -Boiler Deposits: Occurrence And Control | SUEZ

One of the most common is iron oxide deposition on radiant wall tubes. Iron oxide deposits are often quite porous and act as miniature boilers. Water is drawn into the iron oxide deposit. Heat applied to the deposit from the tube wall generates steam, which

[PDF] Creep-Rupture Assessment of Superheater Tubes Using Nondestructive Oxide …

Steam-carrying superheater and reheater tubes in fossil-fired boilers operating at temperatures above 900F (482C) are subject to failure by creep-rupture. These tubes form an internal oxide layer that inhibits heat transfer through the wall and causes the tube metal temperature to increase over time. The thickness of this oxide can be used with unit operating data and wall …
