  1. 1. Corrosion and Surface Studies of Stainless Steel and Chromium Carbide Thin-Films

    Author : Jonas Högström; Leif Nyholm; Kristina Edström; Patrik Schmutz; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; corrosion; electrochemistry; thin film; stainless steel; passive film; chromium carbide; carbon oxidation; surface; depth profile; XPS; SEM; EQCM; sputtering;

    Abstract : Although the passive films that form on stainless steels have been extensively studied, the concentration depth profiles are not fully understood. Their thinness makes passive films hard to study, but angle-resolved X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (ARXPS) is a non-destructive technique that can be used to obtain depth information. READ MORE

  2. 2. Corrosion of steel in concrete at various moisture and chloride levels

    Author : Johan Ahlström; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; steel; rebar; concrete; corrosion; chloride threshold level; moisture;

    Abstract : About 7000 concrete bridges in Sweden were built before 1965. The annual cost for maintenance of these bridges is about 0.6% of their total value. The cooling water tunnels at Swedish nuclear power plants have been exposed to seawater for about 30-40 years. READ MORE

  3. 3. Deposit Induced Corrosion in Biofuel Combustion

    Author : Petter Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ferritic steel; high temperature corrosion; superheater; waste combustion; CFB; biofuel boiler; waterwall; alkali chloride; deposit induced corrosion; chromate; nickel-based alloy; austenitic steel; martensitic steel; waste boiler;

    Abstract : Deposit induced corrosion is one of the main mechanisms for attack on heat exchangers in biofuel boilers. This severe corrosion decreases the obtainable steam temperature in boilers, thereby the efficiency in production of electricity is reduced. Deposit formation from the gas on superheater tubes are is generally referred to as fouling. READ MORE

  4. 4. Superheater corrosion in biomass and waste fired boilers : Characterisation, causes and prevention of chlorine-induced corrosion

    Author : Peter Viklund; Christofer Leygraf; John Nicholls; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; high temperature corrosion; waste; biomass; superheater tubes; steel; alkali; chlorine; sulphur;

    Abstract : Biomass and waste fired boilers suffer severely from corrosion of critical components such as superheater tubes. In this work high temperature corrosion of superheater alloys, and methods to mitigate the problem, have been investigated by laboratory studies and controlled field exposures in commercial boilers.

    Abstract : The use of renewable wood-based fuel has been increasing in the last few decades because it is said to be carbon neutral. However, wood-based fuel, and especially used wood (also known as recycled wood or waste wood), is more corrosive than virgin wood (forest fuel), because of higher amounts of chlorine and heavy metals.
