IMPROVED MARINE BOILER RELIABILITY, PHASE II. VOLUME II: ECONOMIZER CORROSION RATES

This report presents the corrosion potential of commercially available economizer materials in a modern marine boiler under shipboard operating conditions. A comparison of the wastage potential of economizer metals operating at normal temperatures and below acid dew point temperatures was accomplished by the use of controlled temperature probes. Physical measurements and metallurgical techniques were utilized to develop the results generated by these probes. This information can be used to establish safe operating temperatures and adequate materials of fabrication for the final stages of the economizer.
