Full-Length Sleeving for Process Heat Exchanger Tubes
How to calculate the effects of temperature when the sleeves have a higher coefficient of thermal expansion than the installed tubes
Stanley Yokell MGT Inc.
As heat exchangers age, their tube thickness decreases because of erosion, corrosion or a combination of both. Installing thin sleeves in tubes in which the tube walls have become so thin that failure is imminent is a maintenance technique useful for extending heat exchanger life.
One should consider sleeving when: (1) it would be very costly to...
