Abstract:

A brief study was made of the effect on 2-in. combustor flame tube durability by the addition of two P-containing corrosion inhibitors and tri- cresyl-phosphate to a synthetic 1.0 S base fuel. The corrosion inhibitors used were two commercial additives approved for use in military jet fuels. Tri- cresyl-phosphate was included to provide a P compound of known species. This effort was made to check possibilities of accelerated rates of S corrosion of turbine hot section components when P containing corrosion inhibitors were added to high sulfur jet fuels. Tests showed no accelerated deterioration of flame tubes by any of these 3 materials, with some slight indication of a reduction in flame tube metal loss as a result of the addition of the two commercial inhibitors included in the study.
