What is a D-Patch Boiler Repair?

The name D-patch refers to the shape of the patch that is used to repair a defect in the shell, access tube or furnace of the boiler. The corners of the patch are cut to a radius to reduce stress points in the plate patch after welding. Once a defection is identified in an industrial boiler, a specification is produced for the patching and materials. The fatigued section of the shell is then cut out and the precision made patch welded in place. Pressure and steam testing ensures the integrity of the newly fitted patch.
