Abstract

This article begins with a discussion on the components and importance of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) technology used in power plant for pollution control. It further discusses the corrosion problems encountered in different operating zones of FGD system and the major forms of corrosive attack encountered in those zones, including crevice corrosion, pitting corrosion, and acid attack. The article concludes with information on the materials selection and design features for minimizing the possibility of corrosion.
