Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The aim of this project was to develop a thorough knowledge of the materials requirements for critical components within the gasifier hot gas path of coal-fired combined cycle power plants. Failure modes appropriate to the critical components were determined and studies carried out to provide the data required to introduce these issues into an existing life prediction model. Particular topics to be addressed included dew-point and down-time corrosion as well as the spallation of corrosion products from parts downstream of a fuel gas filter in the hot gas clean-up systems of an advanced gasification plant.
