Next months Tip Sheet will detail boiler startup and shutdown procedures in a cold system.[price]Ligaments in Pressure Vessels CR4 Discussion Thread[steel]Mar 10, 2010 · For example, a heat exchanger might use 1.500 inch O.D. tubes, with a tube sheet thickness of 2.000 inches. The center to center distance between adjacent tubes would be 1.25 x 1.500 = 1.875 inches; and thus the ligament between the tubes would be 0.25 x 1.500 = 0.375 inches.[price]Seal Welding and Strength Welding Boiler and Pressure [steel]Jun 16, 2007 · The tube hole in the tubesheet is not beveled for a seal weld. A strength weld is provided "to carry longitudinal tube loads", and it also provides additional leak tightness. The procedure is essentially the same as a seal weld, except the tube hole in the tubesheet is beveled (ie. 45 deg bevel or j groove) to allow filler metal to be deposited.

The idea is to find the tube in the boiler with the most deposit in a high heat area. You cannot use a tube that has failed, because some or all of the deposit will have been removed by the failure.[price]Boiler Chemical CleaningDoing It Correctly[steel]The idea is to find the tube in the boiler with the most deposit in a high heat area.

Flush these surfaces completely with water to dissolve, dilute and remove any remaining sulfur compounds. Dry by blowing air through the boiler. All cleaned surfaces should be coated with a good grade of light oil to prevent rust.
If the overheating is severe, the sheet may fail by rupture, resulting in a boiler explosion, for the fire tube boiler contains much water under saturation temperature and pressure. It should be noted that thick scale or mud deposits on the firebox sheets will cause the same sheet overheating problems. Fuel is burned in the firebox.[price]
