A new fuel treatment additive for gas turbines is described. This additive promises to prevent sulfidation corrosion on the hot parts of all types of gas turbines. Results of testing has shown this additive to be effective in preventing the initiation of sulfidation and prevention of resultant component corrosion on the most sensitive high-temperature area of these engines - the first stage nozzle vanes and blades. The development of this additive is discussed, from preliminary corrosion investigations to its application and handling. Other corrosion prevention equipment developed in conjunction with this fuel additive are also briefly described.
