Three samples cut from the sagged steel tubes of a superheater were sent for analysis. Metallography and hardness measurements indicated decarburization at the tube walls with a resulting decrease in the hardness. Spheroidization in microstructure and decarburization in the steel suggest prolonged overheating of the tubes as the cause for sagging.
