Abstract:

The report describes the results of the first half of the study. Results of tests with volatile, coordinated phosphate, and caustic boiler water treatment under conditions simulating a boiler with clean internal surfaces and one whose surfaces have been fouled with typical preboiler corrosion products, are included. Data relating to deposition and corrosion in the above environments are presented. The corrosion failure of a test tube due to caustic gouging and the discovery of an unusual effect of deposits on boiling characteristics are described.
