Abstract:

Discrepancies between early hot-corrosion models based on sulphidation and more recently reported data obtained by a molten salt fluxing technique are discussed. The hot corrosion role of sulphur in the absence of salt was tested by presulphidizing specimens at high and low sulphur partial pressures and then oxidizing them. Results show that certain features of the practical hot corrosion reaction are not well-modeled by the salt-fluxing model and that sulphur played a more important part than predicted. Author
