New superheater element joints being made. So far only one of the four holes has been machined. Looking at the topmost joint in the nearer pile: the end on the left will go into the header; the longer flat face will have two holes, into which one end of each of two elements will be brazed, each joint being either an inlet or an outlet for a pair of elements. The holes at the end on the right will be plugged.
