310S Stainless Steel Gas Fired Boiler Tube Erosion Shield for Industry Boiler for biomass fired power station is a common component of the heating part of tubes. It is usually used in power station boilers. The useful life of tube shield is 3-5years. The tube shield has a variety of material and the selection of the material shall be subject to the original design of the boiler.The tube shield is divided into straight pipe and bend pipe. The main effect of tube shield is to protect the pipe and increase the service life of the pipe.

Boiler erosion shield is designed to eliminate major maintenance and downtime costs from boiler and condenser tube failure.

Boiler Tubes Erosion Shields

Shapes and specifications of tube shields

The cross-sectional shape of boiler tubes 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 tube 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.

“snap-on” type shield

The most basic parameter of boiler tubes 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.

how to produce tube shield 02

Tube shields production process

To ensure the accuracy of the material. Positive Material Identification (PMI) of stainless steel sheets for tube shields is critical to verifying the grade and composition of stainless steel before it goes into production.
Tube shields from us are manufactured to exacting standards. Advanced equipment and material handling capabilities permit us to offer the fastest turnaround times anywhere.

The current production process for tube shields is to use high-pressure presses and professional moulds for pressing.
The production time is short, the welding performance is good, the welding seam does not fall off, the surface is smooth and the appearance is beautiful. The arc-shaped wear-resistant tile is pressed on a press or bent on a pipe bender with a special mould.


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 tube erosion shields of other materials.


Tube shields are custom made to fit perfectly to straight sections, curved sections and even finned and specialised tubing.

Boiler tube 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 tube erosion shields are produced using a high-pressure press and professional mould 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 tube erosion shields with bends are formed by pressing on a press or bending with a special abrasive on a tube bender.

Boiler tube shields are designed to eliminate major maintenance and downtime costs from boiler and condenser tube failure.

Service life

The service life of boiler tube 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 tube 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 tube 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 tube erosion shields, but during the boiler inspection, it is found that the tubes have a tendency to wear and thinning. Generally, boiler tube erosion shields are also installed to prevent further wear of the tubes and cause serious consequences such as boiler explosions.

On the heating surface of superheated and the economizer tube bundle of the boiler, in order to prevent the pipe from being worn by high temperature flue gas washing, boiler tube 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 a 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.


Boiler erosion shield suitable for a variety of places

Tube 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.

Erosion shields are used to protect boiler tubing from the highly erosive effects of high temperatures and pressures thereby greatly extending tube life.

We offer shielding for tubing, covering straight, bent and finned sections, as well as the clips that hold these in place.

In the long term, these shields more than pay for themselves, preventing the costly replacement of tubing and avoiding the downtime that results from tube breakdown and leaks.

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.
