This inert gas generator, on an oil tanker less than 12 months old, had a thermal signature which obviously required further investigation. A clue to the possible cause of the problem could be seen in this damaged flame tube which had been removed previously.




A flame had been impinging on the side of the tube causing the damage seen in this visual image and the thermograph suggested that the same issue was happening again.
