Corrosion: Environments and Industries
Corrosion and Erosion of Ash-Handling Systems
Ash handling is a major challenge for utilities and industries using coal as a primary fuel. This article discusses the operating problems associated with conventional fly ash/bottom ash handling systems. It describes the two types of fly ash systems, namely, dry and wet fly ash systems. The article presents the ways to minimize operating problems that occur due to corrosion, erosion, scaling, and plugging.
