INDUSTRIAL BOILER RETUBES

The re-tubing of steam boilers is becoming less frequent due to the improvement in water treatment products, and other means of increasing the life span of the tubes. However there are still full or part re-tubes carried out, and we have the capabilities to carry out either.

We have J-prepping equipment for the removal of existing tube end welds or to prep for the new seal welds. Our coded welders have a great deal of experience, working within the confines of a combustion chamber.

CASE STUDY: INDUSTRIAL BOILER RETUBE
CLIENT:TEXTILE COMPANY Case study
JOB: FULL RE-TUBE OF WELLMAN-ROBEY 12,000LBS/HR STEAM BOILER
SCOPE OF WORK
Due to poor water treatment over a number of years, the condition of the boiler tubes had deteriorated to such an extent that tubes had to be repaired on numerous occasions. The decision was made during a two week shut down in the summer that a full retube of the boiler would take place.
McEwen Boilermakers attended site on the pre-arranged date and carried out the following:

  • J-Prepped Combustion Chamber to remove seal welds
  • Cut out old tubes, leaving stay tubes in place.
  • Prepared tube holes for new tubes
  • Slid new tubes into place and power expanded
  • Seal Welded tube ends in combustion chamber
  • Carried out hydraulic test for insurance inspector
  • Boxed boiler back up and brought up to working pressure
  • Handed boiler back to engineering staff.

The full re-tube took less than two weeks and the works engineer was delighted with the work.
