This paper is concerned with corrosion studies on a series of alloys exposed to a non-equilibrated CO-based laboratory atmosphere containing 0.2 % H(2)S, simulating that of a dry-feed entrained slagging gasifier. The alloys selected for this study were MA 956, HR 160, Cronifer 45TM, HR 3C and 26Cr-37Ni alloy containing 3 % V. Results obtained on specimens exposed intermittently for up to 2000 h at 600 C have enabled comparisons to be made between the corrosive degradation of each alloy. Under these environmental conditions, sulphide scales formed on all alloys, although significant differences in corrosion rate and depth of attack between the different materials were noted. The higher Si-containing alloys appeared to have superior corrosion resistance, the 30 % Co-containing alloy, HR 160, containing approximately 2.7 % Si being the most resistant.
