Abstract

Characteristics of the deposits and oxide films formed on 316L stainless steel in situ tested on a boiler of 1000 MW pulverized coal-fired power plant for 150 h were examined. The results show that the deposits are mainly composed of outer fly ash, middle sulfate, and chloride and fluoride in the inner layer. Oxide films are mainly Fe2O3 and Fe3O4. Two models of coupling mechanism of dew point corrosion and viscous ash deposits at different temperature ranges are proposed to instruct engineering application.
