Due to the severe corrosion encountered by fielded blue-oxide finished mild steel stove pipes, the corrosion behavior of alternate stove pipe materialscoatings was assessed. Assessment was based on results of corrosion tests which simulated the operational environment. The data indicated that 310 stainless steel, aluminized, galvanized, and chromium plated mild steels can extend stove pipe service life significantly. Aluminized mild steel appears to be the most cost-effective substitute for the presently used material. Author
