Heat exchangers tubes thickness is based in BWG. Most of the carbon steel tubes are 2. So, when you have exchanger tubes with nominal thickness of 2. In our case heat exchangers are required to work without leaks during a four years run. Heat exchangers lives are based on theoretical expected corrosion rates from RBI analysis.

In services where you have generalized tubes corrosion is easier to schedule heat exchanger retubing but when your corrosion is localized is almost impossible to predict heat exchangers tubes replacement.
