Boilers are closed vessels used for generation of steam by supplying heat energy to water. Boilers are categorized as utility boilers and industrial boilers based on their respective applications. In power generation plant these are widely used to generate the steam and these Power generation boilers consists of an economizer, a evaporator, super heater tube, re-heater tube, a main steam pipe, a reheat pipe, water heat pipe and a feed water heater tube all these pieces of equipments. The selection of material for all these equipments is the important part towards the plant performance and profitability. Alloy steel boiler tubes manufacturers are usually manufactured these boiler tubes using alloy materials which possess both high temperature from the flue gases and high pressure steam generation within the tube.
Boiler tube is the ‘Work-Horse’ of the Power Industry. These are also called as chrome moly heater tubes. These tubes shows a better creep strength, hardness and oxide-scale growth performance due to the presence of higher Chromium and Molybdenum compositions within the tube. Boiler Tubes are made from heat resisting carbon and low alloy steel which can withstand the loads at various pressures and temperatures. Seamless steel tubes are used for boilers to maintain high quality and high performance. Reliable pipes & tubes provide IBR approved boiler tubes. IBR boilers mean any closed vessel exceeding 25 litres in capacity and which is used expressively for generating steam under pressure. Boiler Materials need to be produced under the inspection of the Inspecting Authority and relevant IBR forms to be endorsed by material manufacturer and Inspecting Authority.
Boiler tube is used for parts of energy type equipment such as boilers, steam superheaters, steam pipelines, etc. Reheaters and superheaters are a set of tubes located in the boiler which consist of parallel-mounted steel tubes, butt welded and bent and are generally made of ferritic steel (up to 12 % Cr) and austenitic stainless steel. High-pressure boiler tubes are seamless steel pipe categories as these pipes are well known for durable steel with high strength, high resistance to oxidation corrosion, and have good organizational stability.
