Detecting Flaws in Condenser Tubing Welds

Condensers using seam-welded tubes are usually less expensive than conventional condensers using seamless tubes. However, they can have one major weakness: the weld along the axis of the tubes. The Challenge Condensers now commonly use thin-walled, seam-welded tubes made of 304 and 316 stainless steels, as well as titanium. These tubes are susceptible to defects … Continue reading Detecting Flaws in Condenser Tubing Welds
