Gnanamoorthy, J B and Jayakumar, T and Raj, Baldev (1995) Failure Analysis of A 304 SS Girdling Loop of the Boiler in a 500 MW Thermal Power Plant. In: Proceedings of the National Workshop on Boiler Corrosion (NWBC-95), April 11-12, 1995, NML, Jamshedpur.
There were many cases of girdling loop failures in the reheater section of the 500 MW boilers of athermal power station after being in service relatively for a short period of a few months. Within seven months of synchron-ization, the bottom 'U'portion of the front reheater girdling loop of the boiler of 500 MW thermal power plant had developed a leak. The plant was restarted alter replacing the failed protion of the type 304 stain-less steel 'U' tube. Failure occurred again within seven months of operation. Similar failures followed in the other units of the station.
