Have you ever repaired a tube leak and put the boiler back in service, only to be forced off-line by
another leak? Identifying and correcting the root cause is essential. Shown on the following pages
are some of the failure mechanisms found in fossil boiler tubes. When you see tubes in your boiler
like those illustrated, take advantage of B&W’s tube expertise to help you determine and eliminate
the root cause of the problem. Better yet, let us assist you in putting together a complete condition
