Fe-Si Thermal Spray Coating for Fire Side Corrosion and Erosion Protection in Coal-Fired Boiler


Article Preview

Fe-Si intermetallic thermal spray powders have been developed for sulfidation corrosion and erosion protection for furnace walls in pulverized coal fired boiler. In this paper, evaluation of corrosion and erosion resistance of developed coatings was performed. The corrosion test results showed that the developed coatings almost equal corrosion resistance to conventional corrosion resistant coatings under the low NOX boiler condition. Erosion test results also indicated that Fe-20Si-1B using atmospheric plasma spraying showed higher erosion resistance than the conventional coatings.
