Corrosion probe exposures were conducted in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Incinerator to determine the effects of burning low-chloride sewage sludge with municipal refuse. Probes having controlled temperature gradients were used to measure corrosion rates for exposure times up to 816 hours. The effects of exposure time, metal temperature, and gas temperature were studied. The results demonstrated that the addition of the sludge reduced the initial corrosion rates of carbon and low-alloy steels to about half of that from refuse alone. Little effect was observed on the rates for Types 310 and 347 stainless steels. An aluminized coating on steel resisted corrosion effectively and offers promise as a cost-effective substitute for expensive alloys. In the range 260-482C (500-900F), corrosion rates were significantly reduced and were less dependent on metal temperature. The addition of sludge to refuse is recommended as a corrosion prevention measure and a waste disposal technique.
