Fireside Corrosion in Boilers

Tiwari, S N and Sharma, R N and Prakash, S (1995) Fireside Corrosion in Boilers. In: Proceedings of the National Workshop on Boiler Corrosion(NWBC-95), April 11-12, 1995, NML, Jamshedpur.



Corrosion is a significant problem facing all industries including the electric power industry. Besides being costly, corrosion can have other important consequences on power plant operations. Corrosion damage can result in costly replacements to equipment. Severe corrosion problems can cause forced shut downs and these forced shut downs cannot be tolerated.(') Corrosion would also cause overall loss in power plant efficiency which depends upon smooth and uninterrupted functioning of the boiler unit along with other units. The frequent tube failure in boilers is a threat to power generation and is to be combated and overcome.
