Steam pipe is a pipe specially used to transport high-pressure steam. Once it fails, it will cause serious consequences. The most basic requirements of a qualified steam pipe are to have a strong connection and good sealing performance to ensure its normal working effect. As a professional steam pipe manufacturer, we will start from the appearance and internal structure and analyze the reasons why the steam pipe cannot be used. Generally speaking, there are three common reasons for the failure of steam pipes in addition to oil leakage at the buckling position.
1, Bursting tube body. According to the burst location, steam pipe burst can be divided into two forms. First, the burst locations are located at both ends of the hose, within 25mm of the buckling sheath. The reason for this position burst is due to improper manufacturing or assembly of the steam pipe, such as the rubber pipe being stretched and twisted at the same time during the assembly process, or the bend radius of the steam pipe is less than the minimum allowable bend radius. Second, the gap is 25 mm from the button jacket. The cause of this burst is basically excessive system pressure or tube wear.
2, Trachoma oil leakage on the pipe body of the steam pipe. Pipeline trachoma oil leakage generally manifests as oil leakage or linear injection after the rubber bubble outside the hose. The trachoma on the pipe body is mainly caused by the quality of the hose, such as impurities in the glue in the pipe body, local damage to the pipe body, and defects in the pipe body during demolding.
3. Oil leakage at the joint. The oil leakage at the joint is mainly due to the inconsistent dimensional accuracy of the rubber hose joint and the transition joint connected to other parts, or the mismatch between the rubber hose joint and the transition joint. If the steam pipe fails, we shouldn’t panic. First analyze the problem. Is there a burst in the pipe body, or an oil leak in some joints, grasp the cause of the failure, or replace the joint or pipeline with matching dimensional accuracy to ensure that it will not affect subsequent production.
