All boiler tubes are rolled and expanded into place...no matter what the pressure. My experience has been that only the superheater tubes are then welded in to place. All the generating tubes and screen tubes are just rolled. Working pressures to 1050 psi and superheater outlet temps to 950 F have been my experience.
