When vacuum breakers or thermostatic vents are not installed or functional the tube can be sucked in and break.
If the bundle is subjected to temperature extremes, (thermal shock), the tubes will develop spiral cracks.
On steam applications, harmonics can occur. This constant vibration can cause the steel baffles to eventually cut into the copper tubes.
Chemical corrosion resulting from interaction between the heat exchanger and the circulated fluids.
this results in higher corrosion and restricts heat flow
