... intergranular penetration by molten copper. Particles of copper were seen in scale deposits on the bore of the tube. The tube in general showed a ferritic structure with partially spheroidized carbide. The fact that fusion of the copper had occurred indicated temperatures of 1100 deg C (2012 deg F) had been...

When the temperature of the grate bar exceeds the melting point of the salt deposit (∼520 °C, or 970 °F), hot corrosion is activated. Because there is no inherent mechanism for salt removal other than scale spalling or surface abrasion...
