Final Paper/Presentation Due May 20, 2015

Papers are sought in the following areas: Materials selection, corrosion mechanisms,
and industry corrosion experience (case studies). Specific areas include:

Low-temperature corrosion:

  • Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) corrosion
  • FGD wastewater treatment systems materials selection
  • Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) systems
  • Water treatment systems
  • Transmission and distribution infrastructure
  • Under insulation and buried pipe corrosion
  • Effect of fuel and emissions control additives (Bromine, activated carbon, etc.)
  • Duct-work, casing, and structural corrosion for 50 year+ plant operation
  • Fuel/natural gas handling systems
  • Duplex and stainless steel experience in geothermal and renewable applications
  • Air heater reliability
  • Coating performance
  • Repair and mitigation strategies (coatings, overlays, cathodic protection, etc.)

High-temperature corrosion topics:

  • Steam-side oxidation and exfoliation
  • Fireside corrosion of waterwall and superheaters/reheaters
  • Effect of biomass co-firing
  • Coating and surface modification for improved corrosion behavior
  • Refractories for gasifiers

Combined mechanisms:

  • Stress corrosion cracking in waterwalls
  • Dew point or deliquescent salt corrosion impacts
  • Improper storage and shipment of high-strength alloys
  • Fouling and pitting in HRSG economizers
  • Erosion-corrosion in FRP, coatings, rubber, etc
  • Combined corrosion and mechanical performance issues

Future technologies and general topics:

  • Novel material solutions and metallic alternatives
  • Economics of various materials solutions
  • Open and closed supercritical CO2 cycle material compatibility
  • New equipment: wet ElectroStatic Precipitators (ESPs), CO2 capture systems, etc.
  • Fireside corrosion in oxycombustion environments
  • Liquid/molten salt corrosion for advanced cycles
