This research project falls under the generic theme of modeling high-temperature processes, during energy conversion, flaking and corrosion phenomenon, for systems converting mainly organic matter into energy.
Energy conversion facilities are made of a metal alloy of the Fe-Cr-Ni-V-Mo-W type and are exposed to gaseous species from combustion, or from the evaporation of ashes. Under certain conditions, highly corrosive molten salts may be formed, causing the protective oxide layer of the steel to be transformed into either chromates, molybdates, tungstates or vanadates, or their mixture. This is called 'catastrophic' corrosion.
The presence of ash deposits limits the maximum operating temperature and the energy efficiency of the process. Thus, this research aims to develop a thermodynamic model including chromates, molybdates, tungstates and vanadates that may form in environments containing O-H-S-C-Cl and alkaline salts, to predict the limiting conditions at which ash deposition and corrosion can occur.
