Ethylene pyrolysis furnace radiant tubes have been used at the highest temperature in petrochemical plants. Although the tubes suffer several damages, carburization is the most important one which causes of the tube replacement. Carburization reduces the weldability and causes cracking at repair welding. This paper describes the degradation phenomena and the weldability of long-term used centrifugal casting tubes at the ethylene pyrolysis furnace.
