Introduction :

Boiler pressure parts failures are the leading cause of steam plant non-reliability. A tube failure may cause a forced outage, usually at the most inappropriate time, resulting lost production and lost revenue.

But the tubes don’t just fail suddenly. In 99.99% cases, an imminent tube failure would start giving indication long before it happens. The various damage mechanisms like overheating, corrosion, erosion, fatigue, etc are initiated in the pressure part due to some undesirable conditions taking place in the system where they are working. When the O&M personnel start observing and identifying these undesirable conditions, they can take necessary precautions to avoid the tube failure.

This program provides a multi-discipline understanding of Boiler Tube Failures with basic understanding of Boiler tube metallurgy and their limitations, various tube failure mechanisms, their root causes and preventions with practical exposure through discussion of case studies. Program covers the issues of interest to both Technical and Managerial Staff with discussions by experienced faculties on Practical Techniques for eliminating the most frequent sources of failures in Boiler plant.


Objective :

Upon successful completion of this workshop the participant should be able to understand:

  1. Importance of natural circulation in sub critical boilers
  2. Various undesirable conditions to which the Boiler tubes are exposed during normal and emergency operations
  3. Basic boiler metallurgies and their limitations
  4. Identify undesirable conditions in their system which could lead to a failure
  5. Various damage mechanisms that can be seen in fired and unfired boilers
  6. The areas which are important in a utility boiler inspection
  7. Given specific failure modes of a boiler, describe the cause, how this failure might be prevented and routine repair procedures that might be applied


Unique Feature :

The participating professionals would get an opportunity to critically analyze their own failure cases along with the expert faculties and other experience professionals available in the forum. To facilitate this we will be conducting a special Brain Storming session during the concluding part of the programme. Participating industry can submit details of the specific failure case pertaining to their own plant during the Pre-training session at the Virtual classroom.


Who Should Attend ?

This programme would be useful to the Engineering and Managerial stuffs from Operation, Maintenance, Inspection and Project Department.


Programme (Topic) Details :

I. INTRODUCTION TO BOILER TUBE FAILURES :

  • The Route to Boiler Tube Failure (From Root Cause to Failure)
  • Difference between Damage Mechanisms and Root Cause
  • Analytical approach to identify conditions that may lead to Tube failure.
  • Various adverse conditions in Boiler system leading to overheating, stress and corrosion


II. BASIC METALLURGY OF STEELS USED IN BOILER TUBES :

  • Fundamentals of metallurgy to understand the behavior of steels in boiler environments
  • Boiler tube materials and their ‘susceptibility’ for failures
  • Limitations and degree of susceptibility of tube material’s for failure
  • How to tackle these susceptibilities during actual operation of boilers?
  • Standard Specifications of Boiler Tubes at various locations


III. DAMAGE MECHANISMS & ROOT CAUSES :

  1. Overheating Failures :
    • Understanding of Creep damage
    • Long Time Overheating and Short Time Overeating Failures
    • Case Studies of LTOH and STOH
    • Diagnosis and identification of undesirable conditions
  2. Erosion Failures :
    • Flue gas erosion
    • Steam jet (secondary) erosion
    • High velocity particle erosion in the bed coil tubes of AFBC and kick-off zone of CFBC
    • Wall blowers and LRSB steam jet erosion
    • Falling slag erosion
    • Air ingress associated erosion
    • Case Studies
    • Diagnosis and identification of undesirable conditions
  3. Fatigue Failures :
    • Mechanical Fatigue
    • Thermal Fatigue
    • Case Studies
    • Diagnosis and identification of undesirable conditions
  4. Corrosion Failures :
    • Water Side :

      • Diagnosis and identification of undesirable conditions
  5. Embrittlements :
    • Hydrogen embrittlement
    • Graphitisation
    • Caustic embrittlement
    • Case Studies
    • What are the indications that would suggest a possibility of such failures?
  6. Weld related Failures :
    • Various welding Discontinuities
    • Tube weld joint failures
    • Dissimilar weld joint failures
    • Attachment weld joint failures
    • Plug weld failures
  7. Failures originating from Erection and Storage mistakes :
    • Common mistakes during fabrication and erection that lead to undesirable conditions


IV. CLASSROOM EXERCISE ON FAILURE CASE STUDY :

  • Brain Storming session involving the participants to analyze different Tube Failure cases shown to them


V. DISCUSSION ON CASES REFERRED BY PARTICIPANTS :


VI. CONCLUDING SESSION AND FEEDBACK :

  • Upon successful completion of the course, a certificate will be issued to each candidate.


Course Structure :

12 days pre-training interaction + 3 days classroom training + 10 days post-training follow-up session.

Virtual Classroom :

After registration, each participant would be provided with a username and password to access the Virtual Classroom for this training at our website www.indiaboiler.com. First, there will be a pre-training session for 10 days, where the participants would be offered a soft copy of the study material and a guideline. Each participant can indicate what they expect to gain from this training.
They can also submit any specific failure case pertaining to their organization to this forum.

There would also be 10 days follow-up interaction through Virtual Classroom between the participants and the faculties after the completion of the classroom training. This will increase the opportunities for more detail discussion on the large number of topic covered under the course module.
A guideline on how to avail the virtual Classroom would be sent to each participant after registration.
