Home Forums Coking Technical Heaters & Furnaces Heater Tubes RE: Heater Tubes



It sounds like you have some sagging on those tubes.  There are certain allowances on how much tubes can bend or sagg from their respective hangers, but if the bottom tubes are touching the floor or are too close to the burner you are probably looking at shutting down and fixing the problem.  You may experience some burner impingement if the tubes keep getting too close to the burner.  Try to do some heat scans or some thermal images and see if that part of the heater has more heat than others.  Good luck.
