Title: Condenser tube repairs using tube inserts

Abstract

It is common knowledge that many heat exchanger (HX) tube failures occur within the first 6 in. (150 mm) of the bundle. Inlet-end erosion, stress corrosion cracking, and crevice corrosion are different types of failure mechanisms that are common in shell-and-tube HX.
