An examination of the cause of extensive corrosion of the shell of a 3CR12 conditioning tower in a cement plant

An examination of the cause of extensive corrosion of the shell of a 3CR12 conditioning tower in... The failure of a conditioning tower at a cement plant was investigated. It was found that the structure failed due to a combination of high temperature oxidation and sulphidation. This was aggravated by the presence of sodium and potassium salts in the exit gases. It was concluded that a stainless steel with a higher chromium content than the 3CR12 would be more suitable for this application. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The failure of a conditioning tower at a cement plant was investigated. It was found that the structure failed due to a combination of high temperature oxidation and sulphidation. This was aggravated by the presence of sodium and potassium salts in the exit gases. It was concluded that a stainless steel with a higher chromium content than the 3CR12 would be more suitable for this application.
