Otherwise, it will create a sharp edge on the I.D. of the tube and a surface crack on the O.D. of the tube. The roll length should allow you to

Repair of Tube–Tubesheet Weld Cracks in a Cracke

Serious cracks were found at tube-to-tubesheet welds during the start up operation of a cracked gas/steam heat exchanger in a gas plant. The cause of the failure has been analyzed, and the exchanger is repaired. The root cause of the cracks is mainly attributed to poor workshop in the tube

Corrosion in boilers - Lennte

Corrosion is the reversion of a metal to its ore form. Iron, for example, reverts to iron oxide as the result of corrosion. The process of corrosion, however is a complex electro chemical reaction and it takes many forms. Corrosion may produce general attach over a large metal surface or it may result in pinpoint penetration of metal.
