.... It was designed as a horizontal axis helical coil system enclosed in a sealed tank which was internally gas fired. Fluid entered the vaporizer through 32 coils of nominal 6-inch diameter schedule 80 steel pipe (6.25 in. OD, 0.432 in. wall) wound around the horizontal axis of the tank. A ring gas burner...

..., in which instance service life is zero, or they may fail prematurely in service. Dimensions alone do not determine a design. A designer must consider the type of steel and whether it will be hardened by quenching in water, oil, or air. Generally, liquid-hardened tools require a conservative design; air...
