  The explosion of a steam turbine. (Plugging a tube is typically easier than attempting to repair it. There are many small heat-exchange tubes, and steam generators are designed with excess tubes to allow some to be plugged.) Entire steam generators are often replaced in plant mid-life, which is a major undertaking. Most U.S. PWR plants have had steam generators replaced.

Nuclear Engineering and Design 89 () North-Holland, Amsterdam STEAM GENERATOR TUBE VIBRATION TESTS Walter I. ENDERLIN Pacific Northwest Laboratory, PO Box , Richland, WA , USA Received 22 March The buildup of magnetite in the steam generators of some pressurized water reactors has led operators to propose chemical cleaning to Author: Walter I. Enderlin. The steam generators are vertical U-tube heat exchangers with peerless type steam dryers, moisture separators, and an integral economizer in which heat is transferred from the reactor coolant to the main steam and feedwater system. A major improved feature incorporated into the steam generator File Size: KB.

In water tube boilers thermal fatigue can occur when there is frequent wetting of a hot surface such as is caused by an ill placed and leaking valve dripping internally into a hot steam line. Such failure of a steam line could have very serious consequences. Thermal fatigue cracks can be similar to corrosion fatigue and the two are often confused. EPRI is at the center of a quickly evolving energy landscape. With significant challenges facing the electric industry and the world, we are always seeking top talent with hands-on experience to address issues as they relate to the generation, delivery, use, management and environmental responsibility of global electricity.

The following topics are covered: pressurized water reactor (PWR), Canadian deuterium uranium (CANDU) reactor, and Russian water moderated, water cooled energy reactor (VVER) Cited by: A rupture of a thirty-year-old U-tube on a steam generator for a closed-cycle pressurized-water nuclear power plant occurred, resulting in limited release of reactor water.

A typical tube bundle can be over 9 m (30 ft) tall and 3 m (10 ft) in diam with over 3, mm (7/8-in.) diam Inconel Alloy tubes.

A steam generator tube failing is a problem because radioactive water that passed over the nuclear reactor and into the steam generator may escape into the created steam through a hole in the tube.

Then, the radioactive steam could end up at the turbine and eventually may escape to. 43 rows  phone: () toll-free: () fax: () Email us.

Superheater tube failures are caused by a number of conditions, both mechanical and chemical.

In any instance of superheater tube failure, analysis of the deposits found is an important factor in solving the problem. Magnetic oxide deposits at the point of failure are a direct indication of oxidation of the tube metal (see Figure ). This oxidation occurs during overheating where metal temperatures exceed.

The nickel-chromium-steel alloys and construction methods used to build steam generators affect a tube's ability to resist wear and corrosion. U.S.

Chemicals Industries Division of HSE is aware of three relatively recent failures associated with water tube boilers. Each of these appears to have been caused by corrosion fatigue of the outer water wall tubes. This alert, which is targeted in particular at the chemical industries sector, describes the incidents and outlines the action that should be taken by duty holders.

The Water Technology Subcommittee of the ASME Research and Technology Committee on Water and Steam in Thermal Systems. ASME Press, Low steam pressure from the generator is usually caused by leaks or faulty seals on the water and steam outlet valve or pipes.

Check the pipe and valve fittings for signs of condensation or leaks. If leaks are evident, you may be able to tighten a compression nut with an adjustable wrench and close the leak. Other times, you may have to remove.

In one of the local power plants, one of the boilers has experienced several defects and failures after running approximat hours. 17 tube failures were found at the High Pressure High Temperature Superheater (HPHTSH) outlet : Ainul Akmar Mokhtar, Muhammad Kamil Kamarul Bahrin.

In the final phase of the program, the retired-from-service Surry 2A Steam Generator was used as a test bed to investigate the reliability of inservice EC inspection equipment, personnel, and procedures, and as a source of service-degraded tubes for further validating the empirical equations of remaining tube integrity.
