Failure Investigation of Boiler Tubes: A Comprehensive Approach
Chapter 6.8: Failures Due to Lack of Quality Control or Improper Quality Control
Boiler tube failures associated with material defects are often the result of poor quality control, whether in primary production, on-site fabrication, storage and handling, or installation. This chapter examines quality-related failures stemming from compositional and structural defects, forming and welding defects, design defects, improper cleaning methods, and ineffective maintenance. It also includes case studies and illustrations.
