Corrosion is a common problem in middle and low-pressure boiler tubes, resulting in reduced tube life and potential safety hazards. To prevent and repair corrosion, follow these steps:

1. Material selection: Choose suitable materials for boiler tubes, such as carbon steel, stainless steel, or alloy steel, based on the working conditions (temperature, pressure, and chemical environment). Stainless steel is commonly used for its corrosion resistance.

2. Surface treatment: Before installation, perform surface treatments like pickling and passivation to remove impurities and create a suitable surface for the tube material. This step helps to prevent corrosion from occurring.

3. Water treatment: Proper water treatment is essential to maintain the quality of the water within the boiler system. Chemical treatments like scaling and corrosion inhibitors should be used to control the water's pH level and prevent corrosion.

4. Regular inspection and maintenance: Regularly inspect boiler tubes for signs of corrosion, such as rust, thinning, or leaks. If any signs are detected, immediate repair or replacement is necessary to prevent further damage.

5. Repairs and replacements: When repairing or replacing corroded boiler tubes, ensure that the new tubes are made of suitable materials and undergo proper surface treatment. In some cases, tube linings or coatings can be applied to improve corrosion resistance.

6. Monitoring: Install corrosion monitoring devices to continuously monitor the corrosion status of the boiler tubes. This helps to detect potential problems early and take timely measures to prevent severe corrosion.

7. Training and guidelines: Provide training and guidelines for boiler operators on proper water treatment, inspection, and maintenance procedures. This ensures that the boiler system is operated and maintained correctly, reducing the risk of corrosion.
