About the Project
It has been also reported that the corrosion problem associated with the alkali chloride deposits in biomass-fired boiler. The most severe corrosion problems in biomass-fired systems are expected to occur due to Cl-rich deposits formed on superheater tubes. The presence of alkali chloride salts in deposits may cause accelerated corrosion well below the melting point of the salt. Alkali chlorides, especially potassium chloride, increased the corrosion rate of the materials used as superheater tubes. Reactions between the metallic surface and this species, or other alkali-containing species such as carbonates, have to be avoided in order to increase the corrosion resistance of the superheaters. Therefore, their failure or/and corrosion mechanism should be extensively studied in order to extend the life time of the tubes in the service atmosphere.
The physico-chemical characterization of oxide scale should be first investigated by X-ray diffraction, SEM equipped EDS.
The oxide thickness and type of oxide should be also examined. It is possible that some of phase contamination may appear in the oxide scale. The mechanism of oxide growth can be predicted by these characterization.
After this analysis, the atmosphere can be simulated by mixing of basic gases. The study of corrosion kinetics of uncoated- and coated samples can be then carried out in the simulated atmosphere for predicting the life time in service atmosphere. The reaction mechanism can be further discussed in this study.
• Understand the failure mechanism of uncoated samples under service conditions
• Study the abrasion/erosion resistant and thermal properties of uncoated and coated samples
• Study the corrosion kinetics of uncoated- , and coated samples at service temperature for longer duration of time.
• Predict life time of uncoated and coated samples subjected to service atmosphere
