Investigation is reported on means of reducing fire corrosion damage to the inner walls of solid waste incinerators. A study was made of the effects of various refuse compositions on the fireside corrosion of nine alloys and two protective coatings in order to develop a better understanding of the corrosion process. The refuse compositional variables investigated included chlorine from polyvinyl chloride, and elementary sulfur. Air-cooled probes exposed to the resulting combustion environments were analyzed for corrosion rates and deposit composition. The combustion gases were also monitored.
