Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields

Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields, also known as anti-corrosion Shields, anti-wear plate, anti-wear protection Shields, anti-wear cover plate, anti-corrosion cover plate, boiler climbing pipe, anti-wear pressure plate, etc. , which are used in combination with snap rings.

Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields are produced using a high-pressure press and professional mold pressing. The production time is short, the welding performance is good, the welding should not fall off, the surface is smooth, and the appearance is beautiful. Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields with bends are formed by pressing on a press or bending with a special abrasive on a tube bender.

high temperature erosion resistant straight tube shields for boiler tube


Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields are mainly used on the windward side of the heating surface of the boiler, such as superheaters, reheaters, economizers, and water-cooled wall pipes. The main role is to protect the heating surface of the boiler pipes, reduce pipeline wear, and increase the heating surface of the pipes. Service life. In general, most of them are called “wear-resistant tile” and “wear-resistant cover plate”. Erosion Shields are special boiler accessories. Generally, most of them are used in power station boilers, small boilers are used less, and some coal chemical industries will also use them.


Different types of stainless steel are selected according to the specific conditions of different working conditions. Common materials are: TP321 (Cr18Ni9Ti), TP309S (Cr23Ni13), 1Cr20Ni14Si2, TP310S (Cr25Ni20), 1Cr25Ni20Si2, and some low temperature areas (such as low temperature superheater, low temperature reheater) are made of 1Cr13, 1Cr6Si2Mo and other materials. The boiler was originally designed to be accurate. Different materials have different temperature resistance and mechanical strength. 1Cr13, 1Cr6Si2Mo generally has a temperature resistance of 600 ℃ or less.

We can also supply Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields of other materials.


Processing thickness of Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields
Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields are processed in thicknesses of 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm. Different thickness is adopted according to the wear severity and the need of heat conduction.

Shapes and specifications of Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields
The cross-sectional shape of Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields is mostly semi-circular (180 degrees), and there are also 120-160 degrees. It is mainly used on finned tubes (water-cooled walls); Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields are divided into direct wear-resistant shields, In-curve anti-wear shields, outer-curve anti-wear shields, side-curve anti-wear shields, S-curve anti-wear shields, etc. The length of the straight anti-wear shields ranges from 20mm to 3000mm, and the general length of 1000-2000mm is commonly used. The anti-wear shields with bends generally requires a processing drawing and the following parameters should be on the drawing: outer diameter of the pipe used, bending of the pipe Radius R (to the center of the pipe), the degree of bending angle, and the length of the straight sections on both sides of the arc segment of the wear-resistant shields.

The most basic parameter of Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields is the outer diameter of the tube used (that is, the inner diameter of Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields). The main specifications of the tube are: 32, 38, 42, 44.5, 48, 51, 57, 60, 63.5 , 76, 89mm, etc .; The inner diameter of the Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields is usually 1-3mm larger than the outer diameter of the tube used, depending on the actual requirements.

Accessories: Snap rings

Snap rings .: Used in conjunction with Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields, which is a clip that easily installs Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields to the tube. The snap ring and Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields are overlapped and welded, generally about 190-200 degrees Erosion Shields is a 180-degree semicircle), but also leave a welding position for easy welding and fixing. Generally, each piece of Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields needs to be equipped with 2-4 snap rings with a pitch of 200-500mm.


The service life of Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields is different in different types of boilers and different use parts. The normal service life is a period of overhaul (3-5 years) for the boiler. Generally, some boilers will be replaced or retrofitted every time the boiler is overhauled. The main replacements are those of the Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields that are severely thinned and exceeded the standard; those that were not firmly detached during the boiler operation during the previous installation. According to the wear of the Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields during replacement, if the thickness is severely reduced, it needs to be replaced, the deformation is severe, and those that cannot protect the tube also need to be replaced. In addition, some boiler tubes are not equipped with Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields, but during the boiler inspection, it is found that the tubes have a tendency of wear and thinning. Generally, Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields are also installed to prevent further wear of the tubes and cause serious consequences such as boiler explosion.

On the heating surface of superheater and economizer tube bundle of the boiler, in order to prevent the pipe from being worn by high temperature flue gas washing, boiler tubes erosion shields are mostly arranged on the outer side of the pipe in the direction of flue gas flow. The elbow erosion shields solves the abrasion problems of water wall tubes, superheater tubes, economizer tubes and reheater tubes in the furnace, and provides guarantee for the long-term and reliable operation of CFB boiler. With the increase of CFB boiler products, the type and quantity of The elbow erosion shields will increase.
