Accelerated corrosion and salt scaling in energy applications has a destructive influence on the efficiency of power cycles. In many cases, corroded equipment is taken offline for replacement or repair. Many of the currently used corrosion inhibition methods are expensive, time intensive, and/or hazardous to the environment. One possible solution is implementation of omniphobic liquid impregnated surfaces designed specifically for eliminating scale buildup and salt corrosion. Here we demonstrate that lubricant impregnated surfaces (LIS) resist crystallization and delay the onset of scale precipitation. These surfaces are compared to other forms of hydrophobic substrates, including silane coated surfaces and rare earth oxides. Experiments conducted on these substrates of different surface energies and textures also demonstrate the importance of salt composition in controlling solute-surface interactions, and the importance of micro-textures.
