Determining Heater Tube Replacement Timelines can be a multi-million dollar decision, complicated by heater-specific history, material, and service. E2G’s Materials & Corrosion Subject Matter Experts have the high-temperature knowledge needed to confidently assess remaining equipment life with many complicating factors.
If an alloy has no creep properties published in API 579 – E2G will find data and develop Custom Omega properties.
If tube metal temperature is unknown, E2G can approximate maximum metal temperature using flux-based heat transfer calculations.
If limited operational and thickness data exists on a heater, E2G can provide probabilistic remaining life.
E2G has extensive experience with “box” or cabin-style heaters, “hip” section tube complications, steam-methane reformers (cylindrical and box-type), including pigtails, Arbor (wicket) style tubes, and many other applications.
