The two most common condenser tube problems faced by chemists are internal tube fouling and tube failure. Fouling can have a major impact on power station generating efficiency and capacity, and tube leaks can seriously impact unit availability and reliability. Fundamental understanding of the root cause(s) of these issues, and their mitigation, is essential to resolving these problems and/or preventing their occurrence.
